Ladies of Experimental Music NYC IV
The fourth event in the LOXM NYC residency at Vaudeville Park, featuring cross-spectrum female experimental noise artists.
Zaïmph is the solo project of ambient noise artist Marcia Bassett. Although legendary for white-hot guitar and vocal brutality, Zaimph's recent recordings and performances infuse cracked-raga song structures with dense electronic and synthesiser drones to create soundscapes where a lurking apocalypse is eclipsed by shimmering, meditative beauty.
