an echo is created, repeated and transformed in free play with Space and Time
ECHOfest is a mini festival bringing together artists who play between sound, movement and space
ECHOensemble comes together in an awareness-based practice of repetition and evolution called SHIFT, born from Mary Overlie’s Viewpoints, Steve Reich’s “process music”, and Pauline Oliveros’ Deep Listening, and years of messy research. They have performed for the CREST Festival at Teatro Latea, NYC; Basement Gallery in Bushwick; Dixon Place in Manhattan, and in residence at Dragon’s Egg in Mystic, CT. Individually, they are award-winning, internationally-touring musicians, dancers, composers and choreographers.
echo/chamber is an immersive installation-performance, an evolving architecture of movement and sound. It is a resonance of the place and time it occupies, living through moving bodies and acoustic vibrations.

The Observatory is a series of one-off performances inquiring into our relationship with outer space and the long history of ways it’s been reified through the ages. This installment is a chapter inspired by Galileo Galilei’s work with the telescope and his poetic blindness in old age.
A collaboration between Hannah Gross, Timothy Scott and Nicolas Noreña.
Oscilloscope Study 3.0 is a part of a larger project, Oscilloscope, which demonstrates an abstract dialogue between the human body and the theremin. It explores the theremin, less as an instrument, but as a device that measures movement through sound and the physical body, less as a vehicle for dance, but a human oscilloscope that measures sound through movement. By using the vehicles of (predominantly) sound, installation, and movement art, it will deal with the question of what forms dialogue can take and that there actually is no such thing as a “solo”, that performance inherently incorporates other elements and always, at its very base, is a dialogue, be it between a combination of people, objects, instruments, or the space itself.
Concept and performance by Luisa Muhr, duo with theremin.
Erin Landers, Lara Lewison, and Andrew Yoon present a new project in movement, color, code, and sound.
