MOVING SOUNDS FESTIVAL
For the fifth consecutive year, the Austrian Cultural Forum New York is producing Moving Sounds, a festival dedicated to music, visual media and aesthetic dialogue that features emerging and pioneering artists who focus on electronically generated music, and those who are at the interface of classically instrumented and electronic music. After The Meadow, Before The Forest is part two of an ongoing exploration of the open spaces between minimalism and maximalism, structure and improvisation, and unison and independence as they relate to sound and movement. Choreography by Rachel Bernsen in collaboration with Pamela Newell.
Littlefield is a performance and art space in Brooklyn’s Gowanus neighborhood nestled between Park Slope and Carroll Gardens. Housed in an old, 6200-square foot warehouse dating from the 1920s, Littlefield merges the Gowanus’ industrial past with a sustainable future. These elements include a landscaped interior courtyard, sound walls formed from recycled rubber tires, a bar built from salvaged bowling alley lanes, and energy supplied by wind power. Future projects include a grey-water system and a landscaped roof that will reduce Littlefield’s footprint to virtually zero while providing fresh ingredients for our menu.
