ISSUE Project Room co-presents the opening evening performance of Ende Tymes VII on Thursday, April 27th. The festival is well-known for balancing cutting-edge avant-garde music traditions with street-level aesthetics made possible by deep DIY gear manipulations.
The event opens with Swiss artists Denis Rollet and Francisco Meirino continuing their explorative duo utilizing homemade electronic devices, quotidian objects, modular synthesis and pensive soundscapes.
Following, sonic and performance artist Jenny Gräf performs her unique style of experimental electronica -- invoking immersion and rupture and exploring changing perceptions of diegesis and space.
The evening continues with visual artist and composer Joe Colley presenting visceral electronics that concentrate on the instigation of unstable situations unique to the composition of random sound.
Closing the night, Alexandra Brandon presents her TRNSGNDR/VHS project -- a sound combining noise and pop music sampling that thematically addresses questions of gender, race, and identity. Her performance follows recent works released on Halcyon Veil and DISCWOMAN, a New York-based platform, collective, and booking agency representing and showcasing cis women, trans women and genderqueer talent in electronic music.
The 2017 Ende Tymes Festival of Noise and Experimental Liberation is the seventh annual celebration of Noise, Experimental Music, and Sound Art in outer NYC. Ende Tymes VII presents ~50 artists over the course of four nights April 27th - 30th, in Brooklyn NY at ISSUE Project Room and Silent Barn (where it was born in 2011). The schedule is a densely packed lineup featuring a wide variety of street-level experimental music and noise art: abstract / experimental / avant-garde music, harsh noise, drone, and "unclassifiable" sound artists.
