Ixos: Jan. 14, 2011 (NYC)
Adam Basanta will be travelling to New York City for the performance of “Ixos“, an interdisciplinary collaboration between Montreal and NYC-based artists, in which Adam will be performing live sounds and supplying interactive light design.
Ixos is a concert organized by clarinetist and multi-media artist Krista Martynes. The performance (approximately 55′ in duration) will incorporate movement direction by choreographer Kristin Hatleberg, sound art and light design by Adam Basanta and dance by Ms. Hatleberg and Janet Aisawa.
Ixos is a cyclical production, inspired loosely by bird songs (Ixos is a type of song bird) wherein the four artists envelope the improv-generated compositions of Giacinto Scelsi with their own sound and movement improvisation, including intensification of simple timbres and rhythmic exchanges.
“Ixos” will be performed at the CRS (123 4th Ave, 2nd FL, New York) on January 14th, at 8pm. Tickets are $15.
Adam Basanta is a masters student at matralab.
