No Land & Luke Stewart present works for poems, bass, and spirit

No Land’s work continues in the lineage of the downtown NYC avant garde, honoring an intuitive vow towards creation. She performs her poem-mosaic-ruminations with different formations of musician collaborators including Daniel Carter, Oliver Ray (Patti Smith Group), Bentley Anderson, & more.

Luke Stewart is a musician, performer, improviser-composer whose work represents a deep reverence for the history and tradition of Creative Music: a tradition which encompasses the diverse styles of expression within the body of Black Music in the United States, Africa, and throughout the world. Stewart’s regular ensembles include Irreversible Entanglements and the experimental rock duo Blacks’ Myths

Neti Neti (Amirtha Kidambi + Matt Evans)

Neti Neti is the ritual music duo of Matt Evans (drums/electronics) and Amirtha Kidambi (vocals/electronics) that formed amidst their mutual experiences surrounding grief after the death of loved ones. The pair shape a vessel for processing this loss using hazy rhythmic interplay, dredging piles of noise, and serene moments of ethereal melodic counterpoint. Neti-Neti, translated as “It is not this, it is not that” from Sanskrit, is a contemplation on the nature of reality, life, death, birth and rebirth extracted from the Hindu text of rituals The Upanishads.

Qasim Naqvi

When not touring in lauded trio, Dawn of Midi, Pakistani-American composer Qasim Naqvi creates original music for film, dance, theatre and international chamber ensembles. His most recent works delve deep into the timbres of analogue synthesisers and orchestral configurations.
