JG Thirlwell will perform his surround sound Silver Mantis project at the Tinker Street Cinema in Woodstock, NY on June 11 2022 at 8pm. Tickets are available here.
Silver Mantis is a 50 minute electro-acoustic presentation, performed with software and sampling and theremin. It is an immersive multi channel composition which allows for an elastic performance. Incorporating musique concrète and electronic sound along with live instrumentation, the composition is dynamic, cinematic and diverse with stylistic left-turns, creating a tension between time and anxiety.
It is performed with a projection created exclusively for the project by acclaimed Swedish visual artist Sten Backman.
Silver Mantis has been performed at Cafe Oto in London, Roulette in NYC and Elastic Arts in Chicago.
