For the first time, the acclaimed Krakow festival of experimental and post-classical music comes to New York for one week. Lincoln Center hosts the opening night performance, featuring vibrant artists from the experimental, independent, and club music scenes.
Vladislav Delay, one of the most innovative musicians working in electronic music today, and Lillevan, the highly-regarded video artist who has worked with Fennesz and Morton Subotnik, continue an ongoing collaboration on a brand-new free-form audio and visual improvisation, creating their performance specifically for the David Rubenstein Atrium.
Sebastian Meissner, Germany’s well-known producer of electronic music, who also works under the name Klimek, collaborates with Kwartludium, one of Poland’s most innovative classical/avant-garde quartets. Together, as Solid State Transmitters, they perform an homage to the artists and sound of California’s infamous punk label SST Records, often described as the most influential and popular underground indie label of the 1980s. Essential songs from the SST catalog will be reinterpreted in a surprising, strikingly beautiful manner, to reveal their persisting uniqueness and relevance.
Presented in collaboration with Unsound Festival, Tone Foundation, the Polish Cultural Institute in New York, the Goethe-Institut New York, and the Consulate General of Finland New York.(Source)
