Freida Abtan and Patricia Alessandrini from University of London, Goldsmiths are guest artists in residence at NYU Waverly Labs from February 10-March 1st. During this time they will be electronically augmenting NYU’s collection of early keyboard instruments towards the production of a new work inspired by the mythological story of Orpheus. The instruments will be on display as part of an installation in the Elmer Holmes Bobst library, and will be used in their performance in the ‘Spatialized Sound’ concert at Skirball Hall on 27 February, 8PM.
Patricia and Freida will be working in Room 219, so be sure to drop by if you’re interested in their work. We hope to program a presentation of their work in the department.
