Event description
EARLY SHOW! - FENNESZ, BRITTON POWELL, CELIA HOLLANDER

About this Event

FENNESZ is an Austrian guitarist and composer living in Vienna. Using a filtered and treated electric guitar as the starting point for his lush soundscapes, Fennesz has created a personal and groundbreaking discourse throughout his career. Perhaps sculpting the last truly unique vision for the guitar, his luminant compositions are anything but sterile experiments. Fennesz’s world of sound unfolds and resembles sensitive, telescopic recordings of rainforest insect life or natural atmospheric occurrences, an inherent naturalism permeating each piece. In addition to his prolific output as a solo artist, and his ongoing investigation of the limits of noise, automatic composition, field music or contemporary classical, Fennesz is also a frequent collaborator with other luminaries of the scene. These include artists such as Alva Noto, Oren Ambarchi, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Keith Rowe, Peter Rehberg, David Sylvian, and Jim O’Rourke.

BRITTON POWELL is an American composer and curator living in New York City. Through means of electronics, video, and percussion his work explores psycho-acoustic phenomena, minimalism, and traditions of ethnographic music. Via mixed-media environment designed for sound and multichannel video, the composer's new work meditates on hyper-reality and ambient capitalism — the intersection of technology and urban landscape. Powell’s music has appeared at venues around the world including Centre Pompidou (Paris), The Barbican Center (London), Unsound Festival (Krakow), The Kitchen (NYC), and The Guggenheim House (Japan). Powell works and collaborates with Jon Hassell, Matmos, Lucy Railton, Jon Gibson, Huerco S, among others.

CELIA HOLLANDER Known for the clever minimalism of her $3.33 project, Los Angeles based artist and musician Celia Hollander is an emergent maker of timbre and pattern, repetition and layer. Rendering the high minimalism of Riley and Reich relevant to this very moment, her own din is always novel, and often earmarked with digital artifact intact. Hollander’s total art is a practice uncompartmentalized as she scores across media and contexts, be it for dance, installation, car stereos, or player piano.
