Continuing a decade-long relationship, Unsound Festival New York returns to Lincoln Center with the U.S. premiere of the group improvisation Weavings. Originally formulated by Chilean artist Nicolás Jaar in collaboration with Unsound in 2020 as an online performance with artists from around the world, Weavings is a loose visual score that brings together a collective of musicians weaving in and out of the piece, echoing yarns or threads becoming interlaced. The result was turned into an album, which Pitchfork called “determined and even celebratory, a declaration of defiance”, while Resident Advisor described Weavings as “an astounding, time-shifting accomplishment.”
The second iteration of Weavings took place at Unsound Kraków in 2021, with 12 artists gathered on a stage. Jaar curated and mixed both shows. For this live version of Weavings, Jaar and Unsound will draw on a dozen celebrated players from experimental, jazz, electronic and improv scenes.
Featured artists: Nicolás Jaar, Valentina Magaletti, Marina Herlop, Linda Sikhakhane, Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe aka Lichens, Antonina Nowacka, Cyro Baptista, Dormeshia, Luca Rossi, Tlacael Esparza, Susie Ibarra, and Bint Mbareh
This event is presented with the Polish Cultural Institute New York and the Trust for Mutual Understanding, in partnership with Adam Mickiewicz Institute, Pioneer Works and Music Norway.
