Folksinger Emily Lacy and Saxophonist Jonathan Silberman explore the resonant properties of Pieter Space in sound and utterance. Emily will share songs from her forthcoming album of acapella folk ballads “Weatherbeaten Soul”, and Jonathan will perform some works influenced by his forthcoming set of solo saxophone recordings. With both artists there is an inherent curiosity in the idea of sonic chambers: how air is held together and how it falls apart or dissolves, in a state of music and listening.
Emily Lacy writes folk music for the modern era. Informed by singers like Townes Van Zandt and Bob Dylan, her voice is anything but ordinary. Active in L.A. underground music since the mid-2000′s her sense of urgency will surprise you. Though inspired by the folk tradition, after recording over 15 albums in her young career and working with major art museums across America to present her own unique version of sound art, she continues to challenge classification. Finding a place where folk and punk inspire us to revel in the homemade, she opens up a world that we can hear.
Jonathan Silberman is a musician and composer based in Los Angeles. Known for his work in the group Godzik Pink (5RC/Kill Rock Stars), and later the trio Rats, his current work includes music with the quartet LA Fog as well as expanding experiments with unaccompanied tenor and soprano saxophone.
