ichiigai hits NYC between the 24th and 31th of August


Eleven artists from the collective will strut their stuff at three New York City venues between 24–31 August 2009. Show concepts have been hand-crafted to suit the venues. At stake: the role and categorization of entertainment, the value of seriousness, multi‐media, improvisation, technique, presence, temporality, and sensibility ... in general, and in music and art.

Stay alert for unannounced public performances and public productions from the collective this week. In other words: "If you see something, say something."

An assortment of some projects that are dear to our hearts. Sophisticated audio delights and video projects should prove fertile fodder for academic discussion. All presentations will be moderated and are open to discussion.
