EVE ESSEX (NYC)
Eve Essex is a Brooklyn-based artist, musician and producer. As a soloist on woodwinds and electronics she has appeared at venues including Signal, NY, Harlekin/Mathew Gallery, Berlin, Trans Pecos, NY, and PUFFERSS, Providence. As Das Audit, an instrumental ensemble with Craig Kalpakjian (guitar) and Sean Keenan (bass), recent New York appearances include Pioneer Works, SculptureCenter, Greene Naftali, and MoMA PS1 Printshop. Since 2012 she has been part of the artist duo Essex Olivares with Juan Antonio Olivares; their performances and installations have been presented at Cell Project Space, London, Hyde Park Art Center, Chicago, and in New York at SculptureCenter, Lisa Cooley and Shoot the Lobster, among others, and as part of NY Fashion Week with Eckhaus Latta.
Bridget Feral, that familiar Providence based electronic dog whisperer has done something wonderful - her debut, on All Female Parliament. It focusses around the abstraction of the voice, moving through the uncanny reliability of familiar digitised ambience, into synthetic harpsichords, and self-sampled 18th century Dulcitones - leaving the voice and the listener in ruins.
Providence-based DIY noisemaker Tim Rovinelli (Splatterpuss, House Party) summons shifting tapestries of raw sound from arcane homemade circuits. He also performs in the improvisation quartet BUMPR with Peter Bussigel, Stephan Moore and Caroline Park. BUMPR’s improvised performances fold outer space drones into pulsating geometries, combining acoustic instruments, digital processing and noisy handmade objects. The results are playfully experimental inter-stylistic chunks of spontaneously sculpted spacetime.
