The Glass Bees are excited to have been selected to perform in this intimate venue alongside Color Is Luxury, a Philadelphia-based duo of Charles Cohen (on Buchla synthesizer!) and hair_loss (circuit bending, etc.). We’ll be presenting a live improvisation using field recordings, cello, guitar, iPhone, and other electronics, and have been preparing some video to set the mood. Here are the details:
Saturday, September 25
Doors at 7:30, Sounds start at 8:00
at One Thousand Pulses
9 Edward Place
Woodcliff Lake, NJ [map]
Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 at the door. (We realize it’s a bit steep, but will do our best to make it worth your support, and anything we take home will go straight back into the Bees.) Advance tickets and additional information are available by visiting the One Thousand Pulses website. If you’re thinking of coming, you might want to consider ordering in advance because this is a very small space with limited capacity.
On June 12th and 13th, 2010, the Glass Bees presented an interactive, site-specific performance on Governor’s Island, a former military facility just off the southern tip of Manhattan, as part of the FIGMENT festival. “Reading Governors Island” combined sound, images, and audience-contributed spoken word in to explore the island’s history within the context of an interactive multimedia performance.
