Musical Oddities and Monstrosities@Areté Gallery / Oct 27th
I will be talking and performing among a delightful collection of Musical Oddities and Monstrosities in collaboration with Atlas Obscura. Here are the details from Atlas Obscura:
In this special concert event, Atlas Obscura and sound artist Nick Yulman partner together for a program of musical oddities and delights. Hear books that growl like synthesizers, Natalia ‘Saw Lady’ Paruz and her singing saws, musical vegetables played by composer Angélica Negrón, new musical inventions by Merche Blasco, and a demonstration of the daxophone by Daniel Fishkin.
Your sonic evening will begin with Nick Yulman’s orchestra of robotic instruments playing his original songs in a gallery on the ground floor of a former rope factory. There, you’ll hear the surprising stories behind groundbreaking musical inventions and a chorus of rare instruments—ranging from the charming to cacophonous—played for you in this intimate concert.
The event promises to be a truly special way to start off your Halloween weekend, with instruments that seem haunted themselves and the themed Monster Mash specialty cocktail.
