AUGUST 10-12 at SPECTRUM, 121
LUDLOW STREET, NEW YORK CITY
A festival that celebrates
the historical interaction between the genres of classical Experimental Music
and Progressive Rock since their beginning and into the 21st century.
recently-opened new-music performance venue in NYC's Lower East Side, presents
the NYX Festival: Three days of music where Experimentalism and Prog Rock merge.
Since the last century, these two genres have shared a number of key features:
the free use of emerging technologies by way of synthesizers & electronics,
ambitious musical structures, asymmetric time signatures and, notably, virtuosic
performance involving "traditionally-amplified" electric guitars and their kin
as well as traditionally-acoustic instruments such as piano. The NYX Festival
has a line-up of highly-talented and exciting musicians from NYC and elsewhere.
This will be an enjoyable, envelope-expanding experience for participants, both
audience and performers alike.
