This Week in New York

CEREMONY
Vocalist Charmaine Lee premieres Ceremony, a collaborative work developed with pianist and composer Conrad Tao. Using spatialization, live signal processing, and fixed media, the piece explores a variety of sonic environments — each a meditation on the visceral tactility of vocal and electronic sound. Ceremony is a celebration of hybridity, weaving together diverse influences from ASMR, drone, ambient, and the 80s power ballad. The evening will open with an improvised duo performance by Lee and Nate Wooley. The duo will explore eclectic aesthetic territory together, comfortably moving between rapid-fire free improvisation and the sober austerity of Japanese onkyo.
