About the artists

ALESSANDRO BOSETTI is a composer and sound artist. He works on the musicality of spoken words and unusual aspects of spoken communication and produced text-sound compositions featured in live performances, radio broadcastings and published recordings. In his work he moves on the line between sound anthropology and composition often including translation and misunderstanding in the creative process. Field research and interviews often build the basis for his abstract compositions along with electro-acoustic and acoustic collages, relational strategies,trained and untrained instrumental practices, vocal explorations and digital manipulations

BYRON WESTBROOK is a sound/intermedia artist living in Brooklyn, NY. His audio/video performances as CORRIDORS involve the distribution of processed instrumental and environmental recordings through a multi-channel environment with a focus on energy distilled from sound and light. Westbrook has also collaborated with Paris-based composer and former Kitchen curator Rhys Chatham in the drone metal group Essentialist (Table of the Elements), as well as performed in the ensembles of Phill Niblock, Rhys Chatham, Glenn Branca and Jonathan Kane. In 2007, he was the recipient of the Jerome Foundation Emerging Artists Commission through Roulette Intermedium and is currently the technical coordinator at Experimental Intermedia Foundation, NYC.

Since 2000, Providence’s Erik Carlson has been writing and recording as AREA C. Carlson is a musician, media artist and architect whose work is concerned with space, sound, and their interaction and decay over time. Through loop-based experiments with tone, timbre and rhythm, AREA C uses sound to explore the physical and mental spaces we inhabit. Improvisation and real-time processing play an important part in both recordings and live performances, which often grow from extended explorations of minimal clusters of note and melody.

Non-Event concerts are supported in part by a grant from the LEF foundation.
