Featuring
Susie Ibarra (percussion)
Benton C Bainbridge (light projections)

The sounds of artist and composer Gryphon Rue are constructed of complex patterns derived from singing saw, harmonium, and custom synthesizers, disclosing a fascination with electroacoustic mimetic potential—the ability to suggest biological actions, molecular events, possession, nourishment—and is above all, made with people’s pleasure in mind.

Rue has performed and lectured internationally at venues such as de Young Museum, Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, The Hepworth Wakefield, Kunsthalle Düsseldorf, The Shigeko Kubota Foundation, Hauser & Wirth, Pace Gallery, Roulette Mixology Festival, New Media Art & Sound Summit, Take Off Festival, Festival Hongerige Wolf, i = u Festival, Kathy Acker Awards.

Rue’s latest album, A Spirit Appears to a Pair of Lovers, was released in August on Not Not Fun Records, and features ten videos made by eight intergenerational collaborators.

“it feels like going on a trip you may have taken before, albeit not in a long, long time … his sense of dynamics and texture revealing a finely honed craftsmanship.” –Pitchfork
