Unsound Festival New York Opening
02 Apr | 20:00

Opening the festival this year at ISSUE Project Room is a live presentation of “Knots”, the centerpiece composition from Australian Oren Ambarchi’s album “Audience of One”, released in 2012 by the sound-art label Touch. For “Knots”, Ambarchi is joined by fellow Australians drummer Joe Talia, Crys Cole on contact mics and spring and soloist James Rushford leading a quintet from Krakow’s Sinfonietta Cracovia as well as other string players. Opening for them is half of the Barcelona-based post-rave sound-art duo EVOL, known for what they call "computer music for hooligans". EVOL will present the New York premiere of the rarely performed mathematics-based music of German conceptual artist Hanne Darboven.
