Heat Waves at Amant brings together musicians of different contexts and practices to bring sonic experiences into our summer public programming. Heat Waves is an occasion to gather, listen, move, or simply spend a longer (and acoustic) time in our space.
On August 6 from 4 to 6pm, Brooklyn-based DJ/Producers Via App and Miss Parker energize our courtyard with live, hardware-based electronic music. As DJs, they are integral to Brooklyn’s nightlife, taking the dance floor as a space for experimentation and dialogue. In our inaugural music event, Via App and Miss Parker charge the performance space with vibrant sounds weaving between tension and euphoria.
On August 13 from 6 to 8pm, experimental musicians Lucy Liyou (Philadelphia) and Theodore Cale Schafer (NYC) share the stage. Although their works diverge greatly in style, both interrogate what happens when traditional instrumentation becomes data, engaging in play between synthesized and raw, and between presence and absence.
Entry is free, and we welcome all ages and music preferences. Prior registration is recommended but not required.
