Synth Nights: James Hoff & C. Spencer Yeh, performance at The Kitchen, NY, Wednesday, December 3, 8pm.
James Hoff and C. Spencer Yeh are Brooklyn-based multidisciplinary artists working in the worlds of art and music. Hoff will present his BLASTER project – 808 electro-inspired electronic music created by infecting drum machine samples with computer viruses. Yeh will perform improvisations on violin, voice, and electronics, presenting his most recent electro-acoustic strategies while revisiting older autodidactic performance gestures.
An exhibition of Hoff’s computer virus paintings is currently on view at Callicoon Fine Arts and a record of his BLASTER work has recently been released by the Berlin-based label PAN. Yeh will be a 2015 Artist-in-Residence at ISSUE Project Room and Primary Information will publish a new record of his vocal based recordings in February. His video works will enter distribution by Electronic Arts Intermix in 2015.
