DAILY MAGPIE – March 18th at Paris, London, WEST NILE

Come to West Nile this Wednesday eve to witness four different musicians tapping into the next dimension of space and sound, right before your eyes and ears. See/hear/read more about the artists:

Mudboy (Installation artist/experimental organist and noise musician. Listen to his songs here)

A residency at the art and book store in Los Angeles ‘Family’ produced  [Mudboy’s] ‘large-scale, touch-sensitive, dark-activated, 3-dimensional, 6-oscillator spellcasting diorama and crystal cave. This installation is a meditation on the potential of fractal topography, fungal biota, and the productive necessity of decay.’

Marina Rosenfeld

As an improviser, Marina has developed a distinctive practice playing turntables and her own custom acetate records (‘dub plates’), which are imprinted with original, fragmentary sound created in the studio to be remixed, manipulated, and otherwise transformed live.

Stefano Pilia

An electro-acoustic composer and multi-instrumentalist. His work has become progressively concerned with the research of the sculptural dimensions of sound and its relations with space both through instrumental executional practices and investigations into the recording and production process.

Andrea Belfi (soft looping drums; hints of Moondog)

Andrew Belfi’s main achievement is the building of “proper” songs through a radical improvisation rather than through the use of fixed and codified elements.

Venue: West Nile (New York)
Location: 285 Kent Ave. between S 1st. & S. 2nd / Brooklyn, NY 11211 (See map)
