Join us on Saturday, November 4th, from 7-9 pm for a night of music and experimental sound art. Musician-artists Steve Goodwin, Christopher Kaczmarek, and Joshua Marquez will collaborate within the space of our current exhibition, A Pot Nudged Into Oblivion. An underpinning of warm, lyrical cello and electronic intercessions will meet moments of untethered sound art using live processing, looping devices, and other adapted objects. This event is provided by MAPSpace and Ice Cream Social.
MAPSpace is located at 6 North Pearl Street, suite 404E, 4th floor, in Port Chester NY 10573. Please reach out in advance if your attendance will require elevator access.
Steve Goodwin is a musician, composer and visual artist from Saratoga Springs, NY currently living in Brooklyn. His compositions mostly center on use of the cello and incorporate elements of electronic production and sound collage. He performs live loop-based music as Skeleton Zoo and has released music under that name as well as other monikers. He has also composed music for off-broadway theater and has performed throughout the NYC area.
Christopher Kaczmarek is a New York based artist and educator whose work spans both experimental and traditional practices, including sculpture, site specific installations, hand built electronics instruments, performance, video, and solar-powered objects. His work is often interactive and designed to guide the viewer towards a deeper contemplation about the active and passive roles they play in their inhabited environment. Recent interests have been concerned with the act of walking as a praxis for artistic production, and the shapes in which collective and collaborative settings can be formed to become spaces where imagination and creativity are used in the service of hopeful outcomes. He has performed sound work via Alpha-Bit, an evolving group of visual, performance and sound artists from the New York City and the Lower Hudson valley who use scratch built electronic and circuit bent instruments in their performances.
