Our monthly Mondays Striped Light experimental concert series is in its 8th iteration with a special presentation by Australian sound artist Lucas Abela with Hisham Akira Bharoocha, Chuck Roth, Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, Brandon Lopez, Marcia Bassett, Samara Lubelski, Bob Bellerue, David Watson & Sandy Ewen.

We have a super-rare visit to New York by Lucas ‘Granpa’ Abela, one of the truly stand-out sound artists/performers of our time. Folks, this one is simply not to be missed. On top of that, Lucas has put together a nine piece New York super-band to play a Frankenstein assemblage composition that he has made for this occasion: live improvising groups that will be ‘carved up’ in real time. And then stitched together. Kind of.

Initially viewed as a turntablist, Abela’s work has rarely resembled anything or anyone else. Early on he was stabbing vinyl with Kruger-style stylus gloves. Then he drag-raced the pope and pope-mobile across the Sydney Harbour Bridge in a sonic showdown. He has performed deaf defying duels with amplified samurai swords. It was bound to happen, he was eventually hospitalized by high powered turntables that he’d constructed from motors. He landed pole position on Otomo Yoshihides’ Ground Zero remix compilation ‘Consummation’. And more. Much, much more. Lucas Abela is simply one of the sharpest artists working today, cutting a direct path through the same old.
