Christopher DeLaurenti: Phonopolis & Flap-o-Phone Nocturnes

Christopher DeLaurenti is maker of the notorious “Favorite Intermissions” album released by NY-based label GD Stereo, DeLaurenti presents field recordings that capture unusual confluences of sound, speech, music and “found soundscapes,” accidental field recordings, and inadvertent intersections of audio glitches, improvisation and recording technology.

He also plays the flap-o-phone, a hand-cranked turntable made of cardboard, improvising with vintage performances by Igor Stravinsky and radio transmissions embedded on 78 rpm records. This is the first New York solo appearance of this Seattle-based sound artist since 2001.
