ICElab preview | Phonobellow Work-in-Progress

  • Abrons Arts Center 466 Grand Street New York, NY, 10002 United States (map)

Join us for this special FREE preview of Zosha Di Castri and David Adamcyk's Phonobellow, a new evening-length work commissioned by ICElab.

Phonobellow, a huge bellows, spreads across the stage like an accordion or an old-fashioned camera. Through images, electronics, sculpture, lighting, and live music performed by ICE, Phonobellow captures how deeply two very different technologies--the high-speed camera and the phonograph--resonated with people in 1877, and and how they continue to reverberate to this day.

Zosha Di Castri and David Adamcyk are two Canadian composers living in New York. Zosha’s work extends beyond music including electronics, installations, and collaborations with video and dance. This year she will work with ZOO Dance Company, the NEM, the CSO, ICE, Wet Ink, New World Symphony and San Francisco Symphony. David creates musical works for the concert hall and theatrical stage often incorporating technology. He was the assistant to Martin Matalon and Philippe Leroux, has collaborated with artist Julia Randall, and has worked with the MSO, Talea, ECM+, Ircam, Esprit Orchestra, and SMCQ.
