The 2019-20 season of Musical Ecologies continues Thursday, October 10th with New York-based multidisciplinary artist and performer Jen Kutler. Kutler will present Thank You For Listening, a set of compositions and improvisations for a handmade vibrator synthesizer controlled by a keyboard. All sounds are produced while the instrument is inside of the performer’s body. The sounds are transduced and amplified through an electromagnetic guitar pickup just barely touching the skin on the performer’s abdomen. The evening will begin with a conversation hosted by series curator Dan Joseph.

Now it its seventh season, Musical Ecologies is a monthly symposium on music and sound held at the Old Stone House in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Curated and hosted by composer Dan Joseph, each event typically focuses on a single artist who presents a work or project either in the form of a talk or lecture, a multimedia presentation, a performance, or combination thereof. Each presentation is preceded by an extended conversation between the artist and curator.

About the artist:

Jen Kutler is a New York-based multidisciplinary artist and performer.

Her performances feature many of her instruments incorporated with immersive field recordings to explore common and discrepant experiences of familiar social tones in immersive sound and media environments.
