OPENICE AT ABRONS ART CENTER
ICE presents the world premiere of Wojtek Blecharz’s Music for Invisible Places, an OpenICE commission, at Abrons Art Center. Berlin-based Blecharz, who has workshopped the piece over several installations with ICE at Abrons, is a polyglot performer with long experience in intermedia. The new, transporting work, for a subset of ICE, is ideally suited to the open performance spaces at Abrons.

UNSILENT NIGHT
This pioneering work of public sound art debuted in Greenwich Village in 1992 and is today a tradition that has been celebrated in 100+ cities across five continents. Kline’s electronic soundscape is played by the audience on boomboxes—and amplified phones—carried through city streets. Each participant simultaneously plays one of 4 composed tracks, together creating a joyous noise on foot.
