      LMAKseries: featuring live performances of Kyle Bobby Dunn and Nancy Garcia.

      Kyle Bobby Dunn will open the evening with 'intricately woven, dark blankets of sound capable of isolating the most optimistic of personalities'
      Nancy Garcia will close the night: she will whip the crowd into a fenzy.

      LMAKseries furthers LMAKproject’s aim to integrate film, video, sound art, and media performance into the gallery’s mission and its vision of the contemporary landscape. One particular interest of the series is in exploring the ongoing inter-relationships between digital media, film, and music, whose practices may incorporate improvisation, computer processing, live interaction, narrative, sculptural and spatial aspects in ways that open our conception of both art practice and reception.

      Kyle Bobby Dunn is a Brooklyn, New York based composer born in Canada in 1986. Working outside the realms of traditional composition for classical and perfected instruments i.e. piano, violin, cello – he specializes in arranged work for often large, dense and draining pieces of neo-minimalist and neo-romantic song-craft. His music seems to be about the untechnical aspects and importance of layering, the warmth of the disconnected, and the great channeling of memory and emotion. His work has been described as 'intricately woven, dark blankets of sound capable of isolating the most optimistic of personalities' and 'compositions that are patience incarnate.' He has released his music internationally on Kning Disk (Sweden), Housing (Canada), and Sedimental (US.)

      Nancy Garcia is a New York-based artist who holds a Master's degree from New York University's Interactive Telecommunications Program in the Tisch School of the Arts. Her work and practice utilizes various media, including dance/choreography, performance, printmaking, sound/music, drawing and video. For over a decade, she has recorded, composed and performed experimental noise/rock music and created choreographic works.  She has shown her work at venues such as The Kitchen, Greene Naftali gallery, Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami, D’Amelio Terras gallery, KS Art gallery, Tonic (RIP), New Langton Arts, Dixon Place, West Nile, Movement Research / Judson Church, Knitting Factory, and throughout the US, Japan, and Europe, at festivals such as All Tomorrow's Parties and No Fun Fest. Nancy is currently working on several projects, including a new full-length performance and new music releases. Her new solo album, Be The Climb, is out on Ecstatic Peace records + tapes.  For more info: www.nancygarcia.org  

      LMAKseries is curated by Louky Keijsers, Richard Garet and in consultation with Berlin based Andy Graydon.
