November Sunday Sessions

Sunday Sessions presents a new series of experimental music and sound art commissions with support from Pitchfork’s FORMS

22-25 Jackson Avenue
Long Island City, NY 11101

Following the success of the premiere event featuring the producer ARCA and a new video work by Jesse Kanda, Sunday Sessions is pleased to announce R Plus 6 / Affect Index, by renowned experimental musician Daniel Lopatin, or Oneohtrix Point Never, and San Francisco-based artist Nate Boyce on November 3 and a unique collaboration by the new music collective Future Brown with DiS and Thunderhorse Ent. on November 17.   

Sunday Sessions is a weekly presentation that embraces live arts as an integral aspect of contemporary practice. Now in its second season, the program is looking to expand how experimental music and sound art are presented in the museum context. While in the past sound and music have been mostly featured as one-off live performances, this series of commissions provides artists with the time and financial support to create original works as site-specific projects.

R Plus 6 / Affect Index by Daniel Lopatin and Nate Boyce
Sunday, November 3, 4–7pm, the VW Dome

Experimental electronic musician Daniel Lopatin—known by his stage name as Oneohtrix Point Never—collaborates with artist Nate Boyce for R Plus 6 / Affect Index, a surround sound diffusion and abstract audio/visual seminar exploring the peripheral content informing Lopatin’s new album R+7. It is inspired by jazz fusion harmonic analysis, Cryogenics, procedural composition/poetry and morphogenetic approaches to form.

This program is made possible by Pitchfork’s FORMS.
