After Hours, Ebe Oke
Inspired by the songs of birds, Ebe Oke shares new compositions with his electroacoustic ensemble while soaring just above the Times Square epicenter on The Lodge roof deck, Viacom’s legendary company cafeteria.
The event is SOLD OUT, but streaming LIVE here on Clocktower.org at 10:30pm EST.
From an early age Oke's artistic practice has been multi-disciplinary, with work in various media including photography, design, performance, poetry, video, and storytelling. Raised in southern Georgia, the artist mixes a sense of mythology with the traditional art of song. His otherworldly compositions often incorporate the sounds of birds and insects, echoing his childhood spent on an exotic bird farm. He has studied composition with Karlheinz Stockhausen, collaborated and performed with Brian Eno, and headlined at The Kitchen for Synth Nights, curated by Laurie Anderson.
