Programmed by Land and Sea
Local author Cedar Sigo performs a reading among altars, colored lights, and descending tones. Voicehandler (Jacob Felix Heule and Danishta Rivero) play intuitive, incantatory music grounded in the human voice and percussion, but juxtaposed with contemporary, disembodied electronics. And New York–based performance artist Frank Haines brings us his trademark magical musical montage.
