Bring the Noise provides a platform for the investigation of the current state of afrofuturist philosophy and aesthetics of experimental music.
<fidget> conceives the ‘experimental’ as an approach towards the ‘already known’ and to the ‘not yet known’ that unfolds within many forms of music. King Britt, a DJ, producer, composer, performer and curator of electronic music, has a vision which fits in perfectly with our desire to continue to expand our understanding of the ‘experimental,’ and to bring vibrant, challenging and diverse musics to our audiences.
This takes place close by, devised and performed by thingNY, is a new set of operatic stories and scenes depicting people and places before, during and after a devastating storm. Told almost entirely in the dark and often by whispers, this immersive opera explores the eerie and the absurd through soundscapes, song, speech and imagery. The work is written and performed by Gelsey Bell, Andrew Livingston, Paul Pinto, Erin Rogers, Dave Ruder and Jeffrey Young.
