NORTHSIDE FESTIVAL at ISCP
'Hear myself in it': live music & performances
ISCP is pleased to announce its participation to the Northside Festival taking place June 11-14, 2009 (full program at www.northsidefestival.com). This watershed event is the first of its kind, exposing all the simmering hotbed of artistic and musical talent that Williamsburg has to offer.
On June 12, as part of the Northside Festival program, ISCP will present ‘Hear Myself In It’, an evening of live music and performances from 7 to 10PM. ‘Hear Myself In It’ explores the many ways in which visual artists incorporate music into their practices.
Feather and Folly
Two pleasantly cheerful young women singing harmonies and playing guitar, ukulele, glockenspiel, washboard, cans and a drum is the visual experience that is Feather and Folly. Their music and friendship began at art school, through a swift collaborative connection in song writing and performing. Their songs are melodic yet quirky, endearing yet eerie.
Lilibeth Cuenca (ISCP resident)
Sampling is a common practice in contemporary culture. Lilibeth Cuenca questions the originality and authenticity of an art piece, while creating an explicit discourse about referential art. Cuenca uses art history as a point of departure to create new and innovative performances.
Amelia Saul was born and raised in Seattle, Washington. She works in a variety of media, and has exhibited her work and/or performed in New York, Taiwan, Berlin, Lisbon and Hiroshima; she has also published writings with artists John Russell and the duo Elmgreen + Dragset.
Amelia Winger-Bearskin works primarily in the area of time-based art (sound, video, live performance and digital media). There is an immediacy inherent in live performance and time-based works that she finds compelling. This proximity creates a distinctive reciprocal connection with the viewer.
Private Time is Annie Pearlman's progressive R+B compositions and Brian Belott's sound clowning. Formed in 2006 in Brooklyn, Private Time makes music to expose the private self through physical response, entering from the bottom not the top.
