Two presentations of collective art-making at the crossroads of sound and action, from artists based in New York and Miami.

Composer and experimenter Ben Manley has been instrumental in the construction and realization of sonic environments in New York and beyond. For this concert, Manley presents solos, duos with Julia Santoli (voice & electronics) and Jason McMahon (acoustic guitar), and a trio with David Watson and David First (electric guitars).

Composer Gustavo Matamoros and the Miami-based sound art collective Frozen Music (with David Dunn and Rene Barge) present the New York premiere of their multichannel performance piece March in NY. Using custom-designed audio technology to activate and stimulate indoor and outdoor spaces, the Frozen Music collective engages otherwise inaudible phenomena in the fields of science, nature and architecture.
