The NYX Festival – August 10-12, NYC

SPECTRUM PRESENTS

THE NYX FESTIVAL OF EXPERIMENTAL & PROG MUSIC

AUGUST 10-12 at SPECTRUM, 121 LUDLOW STREET, NEW YORK CITY

COMPLETE FESTIVAL INFO HERE

A festival that celebrates the historical interaction between the genres of classical Experimental Music and Progressive Rock since their beginning and into the 21st century.

Spectrum, a recently-opened new-music performance venue in NYC’s Lower East Side, presents the NYX Festival: Three days of music where Experimentalism and Prog Rock merge. Since the last century, these two genres have shared a number of key features: the free use of emerging technologies by way of synthesizers & electronics, ambitious musical structures, asymmetric time signatures and, notably, virtuosic performance involving “traditionally-amplified” electric guitars and their kin as well as “traditionally-acoustic” instruments such as piano. The NYX Festival has a line-up of highly-talented and exciting musicians from NYC and elsewhere. This will be an enjoyable, envelope-expanding experience for participants, both audience and performers alike.

FRIDAY, AUGUST 10from 7:30 PM until midnight, doors open at 7:00 PM, tickets $15
