SOUND PROGRAM CURATED BY LAWRENCE ENGLISH

SOUND PROGRAM CURATED BY LAWRENCE ENGLISH

Across three weekends, BIG CITY LIGHTS* plays host to a gathering of exploratory musicians and sound provocateurs who create work operating at the very edges of the familiar. Devolved pop, dark-wave groove, ecstatic noise, pulsating bass and crushing harmony are the hallmarks of these artists. They push at the very forms of sound and structures of songwriting to uncover new ways of creation and connection. This is a music of rapture and elation, affect and pure sensorial overload. Sound program curated by Lawrence English.
