Ramiken Crucible presents the New York City premiere of ((audience)) on Saturday, June 5, featuring an extended screening of the 2009 ((audience)) program and an evening concert of experimental noise music. All events will happen in complete darkness.
11am – 6:30pm: Screening of 2009 ((audience)) program in 5.1 surround sound
Conceived in 2006, the centerpiece of ((audience)) is a 2½-hour program of 5.1 surround sound works by eight international artists. Presented in-the-dark with full 5.1 surround sound, this immersive experience in cinematic audio will feature works by: Jamie Allen; Bryan Jacobs; the Loud Objects; Simona Brinkmann; Uli Schuster; Natasha Barrett; Emmanuel Madan and Anna Friz; and Cedric Maridet. The ((audience)) program will be screened three times in complete darkness: 11am, 1:30pm and 4pm. Audience members may come and go from the screenings. $5 suggested donation.
Experimental noise in the dark / $10 – 20 sliding scale
9pm: Doors open for concert
10pm: MV Carbon and Tony Conrad
11pm: Surprise guests
Midnight: Loud Objects
If Tony Conrad’s powerful sound has its roots in “minimalism”, MV Carbon’s music introduces a more contemporary but equally aggressive practice. Meeting with violin and cello above a unifying drone, their tangles of sounds incite a tumbling clash of traditions. The Loud Objects have set the standard for performative live circuit bending. Most often wielding soldering irons over a ramshackle overhead projector, the New York City-based trio wire up live musical circuits in pursuit of lo-fi electronic noise. During this performance, the Loud Objects will present a new performance experiment. $10 – 20 sliding scale.
Ramiken Crucible is located on Clinton and East Broadway in New York City. The entrance is in the black box on the southeast corner of the intersection (go down the stairs!)
