Title:Point’s Theresa Buchheister and Spencer Thomas Campbell will be working on a new piece by Spencer with a small core group of collaborators.
Sharing the space/time at NACL will be thingNY, a collective of New York composer-performers who fuse electronic and acoustic chamber music with new opera, improvisation, theater, text, song, and installation. Founded in 2006, thingNY performs experimental sound works created collaboratively by the core ensemble – Paul Pinto, Erin Rogers, Jeffrey Young, Gelsey Bell, Dave Ruder, and Andrew Livingston – and by adventurous composers such as Jennifer Walshe, Robert Ashley, Rick Burkhardt, Pauline Oliveros, Miguel Frasconi, Vinko Globokar, John Cage, Julius Eastman, Jessie Marino, and Andrea La Rose.
thingNY will be collectively creating a new piece to be premiered in January 2024 at The Brick as part of the Exponential Festival. The piece deals with ancestral language, digestion as a metaphor for lineage and ancestry, displacement through time and space, and similar themes.
