OUTSOUND featuring Son Lux
Composer/musician Son Lux fused hip-hop beats, sparse piano and plainchant in his 2008 debut record, At War with Walls & Mazes. That year, National Public Radio's All Songs Considered recognized him as Best New Artist. For his latest release, We Are Rising, Son Lux forged an exquisite combination of classical notions, modern electronics, and unusual pop. Guest artists on the album include the Antlers’ Peter Siblerman, Shara Worden, DM Stith, and others. Opening act: Helado Negro, whose new album, Canta Lechuza, is an audible transcendence of the confines of electronic music, a one-of-a-kind Latin abstract-expressionism. This concert is part of OUTSOUND, a three-day sound art and experimental music festival presented by the Service Center for Contemporary Art & Culture.
