Artist, musician and electronic composer C. Spencer Yeh (Burning Star Core) will hold an improvisational sound performance. Taking cues from a diverse range of musical genres such as noise, free jazz and improvisation, Yeh manipulates sound by accentuating specific frequencies of sonic output, creating rich abstract aural landscapes. Intensifying the experience, Yeh will utilize effects pedals such as loop machines to record and play back his voice live, reciting both prepared and improvised speech in poetic tempo with hypnotic resonance.

Performances are time-based, are reliant on the series of events created within the works, and end when levels the sound created reaches either a ceiling of intense energy or is denied any musical dynamism.

Guests are asked to RSVP online.
