Montreal-based composer Kara-Lis Coverdale draws on her experiences as a classically-trained pianist, church organist, and omnivorous explorer of electronic music. In her albums on labels such as Boomkat, Sacred Phrases, and Umor Rex, and in intense, explorative live performances, Coverdale manipulates sounds from synthetic and traditional instruments to create layered textures and spacious arrangements. In many compositions, her vignettes explore how sonic material can evoke complex feelings such as sanctity, disembodiment, aggression, and ethereal beauty. Free; reservations are requested. Event attendees may also RSVP by calling 773.702.8670 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Co-presented by the Renaissance Society and Lampo.
Peter Murphy: 40 Years of Bauhaus
Friday February 22 (sold out) and Saturday February 23, 2019 (sold out), 7:30 pm
Peter Murphy 40 years of Bauhaus, Ruby Celebration featuring David J. performing In the Flat Field in its entirety plus extended encore of Bauhaus classics.
Formed in 1978, the legendary and hugely influential BAUHUAS hailed from Northampton, England and is comprised of Peter Murphy, Daniel Ash , David J and Kevin Haskins. The dark, dramatic music that they made possessed far more force, variety, and playfulness than the “founding fathers of goth” tag that is attached to them.
In The Flat Field is the band’s debut studio album, released by 4AD and considered to be one of the very first “goth” albums. This was mastered from HD audio files transferred from the original tapes. Tickets $55 general admission, $75 Gold, $200 VIP / All Ages. Presented by Empty Bottle, with Rockefeller Chapel.
(tickets are sold out for both shows, please contact Empty Bottle if you have questions)
