CADENCE 23

A HARMONIC INTERVENTION

~~~

April 30 – May 1, 2016
30 Continuous Hours
30 Sonic & Visual Artists

~~~

produced by
Dok Gregory, Geoff Kuffner & Chris Jordan

The second event in our trilogy was inspired by the extended ceremonial performances–of days and even weeks–in Balinese and Indian Tradition. And by the power of artists to shift collective experience, to deliver harmony from elements in disturbance.

Cadence 23 was an endurance convergence of underground NYC experimental live audio, live video and performance that moved through 4 acts:

Act 1: Opening Performances and Plan 23 Sonic Cresendo
Act 2: Live Audio Groove Deep into morning
Act 3: Sunrise Ambient Return & the day journey
Act 4: Ritual Close with HISAYASU TAKASHI and KELVIN DALY

We invite you to an extraordinary marathon convergence of NYC experimental artists, a liminal place of live audio – from experimental to ambient to deep minimal techno to noise, visceral performances, video and light worthy of dream science … all in a warehouse being transformed day by day by NYC muralists.

Come when you will and stay as long as you like or come when we begin and don’t leave until we end…. Doors at 3pm Saturday – mural art & installations, picnic in the courtyard w/ beer, wine and water bar. Performances begin at 5pm and continue non stop until Sunday at 9pm.
