Masters at crafting alluring sonic landscapes from the most unlikely found objects, Brooklyn-based quartet Sō Percussion explores the idea of home with a bold experiment in collaborative art-making. Directed by three-time Obie Award winner Ain Gordon (Spalding Gray: Stories Left to Tell), Where (we) Live invites artistic colleagues working in different mediums to participate as both co-collaborator and muse in Sō’s creative process and performance: Grey Mcmurray (itsnotyouitsme, Knights on Earth) writes poignant, personal songs; Martin Schmidt’s videos show the quirky and unnoticed beauty in our homes; and Emily Johnson delivers secret instructions to the performers onstage. Each evening will also feature a special guest artist (listed below). To these and other contributions, Sō adds an astounding range of composed and improvised sounds, inspired by the physical and symbolic places we live.
JOHN HODGMAN: THAT IS ALL

The Bell House
Not even John Hodgman, the Daily Show’s resident expert, knows for sure. But he is keeping John Cusack prisoner in his home, just in case. And on December 21, he will perform what is likely to be the last night of comedy entertainment ever.
Thursday, December 13, 6 – 8 pm
Higher Pictures presents the first solo exhibition by Letha Wilson. Wilson uses photography as a material medium combining photographic images of nature, prints, paint, concrete and wood in a dimensional manner to examine the made world.My artwork uses images I have photographed in the natural landscape as a starting point for interpretation and confrontation. The work creates relationships between architecture and nature, the gallery space and the American wilderness. In the photo-based sculptures the ability for a photograph to transport the viewer is both called upon, and questioned; sculptural intervention attempts to compensate for the photographʼs failure to encompass the physical site it represents. Landscape photography as a genre is approached with equal parts reverence and skepticism.

Abigail Fischer and Now Ensemble and Aaron Roche performed SFTU at Le Poisson Rouge, Dec 2012
Song from the Uproar originally premiered at The Kitchen in Feb 2012 and was reprised at Le Poisson Rouge this past December with the NOW Ensemble and Abigail Fischer. Aaron Roche also preformed and video was shown from Stephen Taylor. The narrative of SFTU revolves around Isabelle Eberhardt, a gender defying Swiss explorer and journalist who kept extensive diaries of her extraordinary lifestyle in the 1800s. In the early 1900s she moved to Algeria where she wore the garb of men and called herself, Si Mahmoud Essadi. She married an Algerian solider, and was eventually killed by a flood in 1904, after an early assassination attempt. Creator Missy Mazzoli and librettist Royce Vavrek were interviewed about the project below.

Tonight, Phantom Orchard presents duo arrangements of work from their most recent album,Trouble in Paradise (Tzadik), featuring Mori on live visuals and electronics and Parkins on harps, keyboard, and celesta.
