OptoSonic Tea presents:
Gen Ken Montgomery’s Super Group – audio-visual scored improvisation
For the first time since it’s creation in 2015 at MOMA/PS1 Allgold Printshop: Gen Ken Montgomery’s Super Group. The Super Group is a electro-acoustic and visual immersive project Montgomery conceived to explore graphic notation. It features the incredible talent of artists and performers he has been fortunate to know in the 35 years he has been involved in the New York Experimental and Underground music scene. The Super Group continues his work with the spatialization of sound that began with his octophonic concert compositions under the tutelage of Berlin composer Conrad Schnitzler in the 1980s. He first presented these 8-channel electronic music concerts at Generator, the sound art gallery he founded in 1989 in NYC, and has continued to work with multi-channel sound since.
Music/sound and film/video artists TBA.
OptoSonic Tea is an on-going series of periodic meetings or salons, started in 2006 by Katherine Liberovskaya and Ursula Scherrer, dedicated to the convergence of live visuals with live sound which focuses primarily on the visual component. These presentation-and-discussion meetings aim to explore different forms of live visuals (live video, live film, live slide projection and their variations and combinations) and the different ways they can come into interaction with live audio. The live presentations are followed by a discussion about the artists’ practices over a cup of green tea.
The EI programs are supported by The David & Sylvia Teitelbaum Fund, Inc, the Aaron Copland Fund for Music, the Phaedrus Foundation, and the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature
