During this long weekend of performance, join us as Jacolby Satterwhite premieres En Plein Air: Music of Objective Romance. In this newly commissioned piece, the artist builds an immersive virtual reality dreamscape from his mother Patricia’s archive of twelve a cappella albums, originally recorded in the late 90s on consumer-grade cassette tapes. Satterwhite and his musical collaborator Nick Weiss (Teengirl Fantasy) selected from over 155 of Patricia’s tracks. The resulting visual album — set to Patricia’s original melodies and vocals and incorporating elements of electronic house, noise, and deconstructed club music — debuts in this listening party and live concert environment. Drinks available for purchase.
