Christopher DeLaurenti: Phonopolis & Flap-o-Phone Nocturnes
corner of avenue C and 2nd street, Manhattan
8 pm – sharp!
$10 ($5 for students)
Maker of the notorious Favorite Intermissions album, DeLaurenti presents field recordings that capture unusual confluences of sound, speech, music and “found soundscapes,” accidental field recordings, and inadvertent intersections of audio glitches, improvisation and recording technology.
He also plays the flap-o phone, a hand-cranked turntable made of cardboard, improvising with vintage performances by Igor Stravinsky. This is the first New York solo appearance of this Seattle-based sound artist since 2001.
