electric.kitchen + Chantal DeFelice
electric.kitchen is Mark Lentczner and Bill Waitroski, joined here by artist Chantal deFelice for a multichannel audio/visual performance at Indexical. (re)connect is electric.kitchen’s evening of experimental electronic music and visuals exploring reconnecting after two years of isolation for performing artists. The whole evening connects its parts into a journey, newly traveled every night.
Mark Lentczner works with electronic sonic elements - analog synthesizers, sampled sounds, drum boxes, handmade electronics, effects boxes - using them in ways that skirts the line between recognizable musical forms, and journeys in sonic space. The music is all conceived for live performance, using many different ways to interact with electronics, building on the energy of live creation with an audience.
Bill Waitroski uses modular video synthesis and video feedback to create abstract visual interpretations of the hidden energy fields that surround us. The live performed visuals expose a secret, subtle, sometimes unruly world, lying just outside our normal field of perception.
Chantal deFelice is a passionate autodidact with penchant for science, literature, history and travel. She manipulates material gathered from these sources of learning into tangible or experiential art: alternating between performing live video projections, composing audio soundscapes, and creating paintings on wood or ink drawings on paper.
