Naked Noise #8 – April 1st


This April, CSMA’s 3rd Floor Auditorium will once again transform into an ethereal sound garden, through Naked Noise large ensemble of improvised ritual drone. Two 45 minute sets will be performed with a brief intermission. In this transcendental sound experience, unique to Ithaca, performers set up in a ring against the walls of the auditorium with the percussionists in the center, and the audience is encouraged to wander around the ring in-between. The sound will stretch and mutate as your location varies as live visuals glow across the installation overhead.

Featuring: Alyssa Duerksen (Violin), Andrew Dobos (Percussion), Beau Mahadev (Synth), Chris Demetriou (Percussion), Chris Knight (Synth), David Cabuenas (Violin/Thumb Piano), David Resig (Bassoon), Desmond Bratton (Double Bass), Emily DiAngelo (Oboe), Heather Fae (Voice/Synth), Josh Oxford (Synth), Mark Gross Voice/Synth, Maro Kariya (Synth), Michael Stark (Organ), Nicki Duval (Synth), Nils Hoover (Visuals), Penelope Lindsay (Synth), Sean Harvey (Percussion), Taylor Eddinger (Percussion) NN#8 is made possible in grant support from the Tompkins County Tourism Program, Community Arts Partnership of Tompknis County, and Community Foundation of Tompkins County.
