Crossing the Lagrangian Point” is a large multi-movement piece written by faculty member Hans Tammen for 10 light & sound performers, a spatialist, and a conductor. A large collection of lightbulbs, LED structures and fluorescent lights fight and clash with bizarre visuals projected onto objects, fabrics, ceilings and walls. Sounds are generated with ear-scorching intensity directly from the visuals or from a mad combination of audio and video synth modules, while the “spatialist” throws them around in an 8-channel sound system like a violently moving fluid. It is a controlled chaos of loud, visceral blast of colors, flashes and polyrhythmic machinations.
Participating artists include Michael Vorfield, ChiKa, Benton C Bainbridge, James Yuxi Cao, MSHR (Birch Cooper & Brenna Murphy), Dafna Naphtali, Eric Drasin, Jonas Bers, Matthew Ostrowski, Daniel Neumann (spatialist) and Hans Tammen (concept, composing, conducting).
The performance will be taking place on Thursday, November 30th at 8pm at the Knockdown Center in Brookyln. Tickets are $10. NHLK, a duo from Switzerland that explores the boundaries where music and language overlap, will be opening for them at 7pm.
