songsmith Quarantine Stream Finale - SPECIAL EVENT featuring AudraSonic
When New York State and the CDC announced social distancing and quarantine protocols in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, songsmith was forced to cancel our March 13 show to respect the safety concerns of our community and regard human health as our top priority. However, as an organization, we wanted to make sure that even during these unprecedented times, we could still find a way to spotlight great songwriters in a safe manner, both to brighten people's days in isolation and give the artists much-needed exposure at a time when gigs and income suddenly became non-existent. On Monday, March 30, we began our Quarantine Stream - a series of pop-up live performances by local artists, filmed and streamed in adherence with the social distancing protocols recommended by the CDC. Since then, we did three streams a week, culminating in a total of 24 streams by Friday, May 22.
As New York State begins to reopen, songsmith realizes that the natural time to end the Quarantine Stream is now. As we all deal with the stress of getting back to work, our community, and extended family, songsmith is taking this opportunity to regroup as well.
In order to celebrate our achievement with the Quarantine Stream, songsmith will be presenting a special songsmith Quarantine Stream Finale Special Event this Saturday, May 23, at 8:00, featuring AudraSonic.
AudraSonic is an experimental/electronic music collaboration between KidAudra (Audra Kizina) and SonicHudson (Matt Harle). Audra and Matt met through Dan Weise and the Club Draw Beacon art-making club. They both played the Club Draw Picnic and a second event at the Howland Cultural Center, before deciding to form a parnership. This show will feature a 30 minute Zoom-facilitated interview by host Mark Westin with Audra and Matt. Video designer Jeff Crouse will also join the discussion. The interview will be followed by a video of a live set by AudraSonic.
This show, in its own way, will bring us back to our original mission of interviewing and sharing songwriters' work. Please sign up here in order to join us in our celebration of the Quarantine Stream and enjoy music by AudraSonic - we will be streaming live on Vimeo and our Facebook page.
