NEW YORK, NY, Saturday, February 16, 2013 - Bringing together some of the best musicians, artists, and aerialists in New York City, Johnny Arco is launching his self-titled debut EP with an explosive event showcasing world-class dancers, musicians, and circus performers alongside sculptural, visual, and cinematic artworks in an exciting immersive experience.
This EP Release was made possible in part thanks to a successfully funded Kickstarter that raised $3,000 in three weeks, along with donated studio time from The End, a recording studio in Greenpoint, Brooklyn. "First and foremost he had some great tunes," says Brian Crowe of The End. "When our engineer came to me with the project, standing behind his talent, we were more than happy to support." The EP includes four original tracks and is available for purchase from the artist's website in USB format and as a digital download.
Taking DIY to the sky, the EP Release Party is also a film shoot building footage for the music video to "This Is Going To Kill Me", the first track on the EP, which was featured on BBC this past December on a segment interviewing aerialist Seanna Sharpe on the art of the death-defying stunt.
Seanna Sharpe will be producing, directing and performing as a featured soloist in the music video and the live performance, accompanied by a string orchestra, choir, rock band and aerial dance company, Aeon Aerial Arts. The music video and live act will be showcased at South by Southwest in Austin, TX this March. Doors open at 7pm with performances by Emmanuel Smith, Lauren Silva, Spice Hound Music Co. featuring The Hybrid Movement Company, Connie and Zach H. Dinner provided and catered by Mark Fahrer Catering, http://markfahrer.com.
