Rat-drifting 2: Sarah Hennies and Kurt Newman

Dec. 2, 8pm, Array Space ($15/PWYC): Currently based in Ithaca, NY, composer-percussionist Sarah Hennies will perform both parts of her work Gather & Release for vibraphone, sine waves, field recordings and bilateral stimulation. Sarah’s work is primarily concerned with an immersive, psychoacoustic presentation of sound brought about by an often grueling, endurance-based performance practice. None-the-less, Gather & Release is personal, immediate, yet reserved.

Opening will be Toronto’s Kurt Newman on pedal steel guitar, (probably) playing along with multiple repetitions of processed versions of Iris DeMent singing 50 Miles of Elbow Room.
