Soundtrack performed live to prepared video at One Thousand Pulses, September 25, 2010

Performance: September 25, at One Thousand Pulses in Woodcliff Lake, NJ

Earlier this year, we discovered a special venue hiding out amidst the suburban dreamland of Bergen County, NJ. Curated by Darren Bergstein, formerly the editor of e/i Magazine, One Thousand Pulses is a home concert series featuring artists operating throughout the spectrum of electronic and experimental music.

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

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.
