Francisco López makes a rare New York appearance— his first since two sold-out shows at ISSUE in 2012. He creates an immersive sonic experience in the dark, with multi-channel sound and blindfolded audience. Taylor Deupree and Stephen Vitiello, label-mates and collaborators, perform a unique duo featuring modular synthesizers, field recordings and guitar. The evening anticipates all three artists’ participation in Caramoor’s sound art exhibition In the Garden of Sonic Delights.
