Doron Sadja “SENSATIONS”Monday, May 20, 2013 @ 8:00 pm
Doron Sadja’s body of work spans everything from immersive multichannel sound pieces to pelvis thrusting performances, feces filled speaker installations, and stroboscopic smoke, mirror, laser, and projection shows. Equal parts disgust and empathy, organic and synthetic, D. Sadja’s work excites the psyche with extremes to create hyper-emotive sonic architecture. Tonight, Sadja presents the world premiere of SENSATIONS, a multichannel work developed specifically to engage the unique architectural space and lighting system of Roulette’s Art Deco concert hall: combining lush romantic synthesizers, dense noise, binaural frequencies, and high-intensity lights in an onslaught of highly-controlled chaos.
WARNING: SENSATIONS contains stroboscopic lights.
“Doron Sadja gives life to music which is difficult, powerful, intense and delicate – all at the same time.” Touching Extremes
D. Sadja has published music on 12k, ATAK, and Shinkoyo records, and has performed/shown video and installation work at PS1 MoMA, Fragmental Museum, Miami MOCA, D’amelio Terras Gallery, Cleveland Museum of Art, Issue Project Room, and Roulette amongst others. Sadja co-founded Shinkoyo Records and the West Nile experimental performance space in Brooklyn (RIP), and has curated various new music/sound festivals around NYC.
