Music + Collaborative Sound Art Night
Join us on Saturday, November 4th, from 7-9 pm for a night of music and experimental sound art.
Musician-artists Steve Goodwin, Christopher Kaczmarek, and Joshua Marquez will collaborate within the space of our current exhibition, A Pot Nudged Into Oblivion. An underpinning of warm, lyrical cello and electronic intercessions will meet moments of untethered sound art using live processing, looping devices, and other adapted objects. This event is provided by MAPSpace and Ice Cream Social. RSVP at https://tinyurl.com/yz4jfk4b
Joshua Marquez is a Philadelphia-based Filipino-American composer, improviser, and sound artist whose music explores the liminal space between tone/noise as a means to investigate the complexities of Asian American identity in search of connection during a diaspora. Searing a sonic imprint of cultural identity, his explorations of the noise spectrum through the fusion and fission of disparate timbres. Joshua’s music is described as “upsetting and calming in equal measure” with atmospheres that “sink into your skin” (Prism Reviews).
