No Longer Showing.
Born of an iterative, sculptural approach to composition, Breaking English represents Rafiq Bhatia’s (member of Son Lux) deepest integration to date of intricately designed sound art and risk-imbued improvisation, leading the New York Times to deem Bhatia “one of the most intriguing figures in music today." In this evening-length live performance, an electroacoustic trio of Bhatia, Ian Chang (electronic and acoustic drums) and Jackson Hill (bass and synthesizers), is transformed into an immersive multimedia experience by visual artist Michael Cina and video artist Hal Lovemelt. With special guest WILLS.
March 15, 8pm. $25 General / $20 Members.
