Holiday Giveaway Party

Clocktower hosts a holiday party at a secret location in midtown Manhattan, with a giveaway raffle of artworks by the late post-minimal artist, Dale Henry, and a performance from the newly formed, avant-garde Amirtha Kidambi Quartet.

RSVP LIST FULL. REGISTER FOR OUR WAIT LIST USING THE BROWN PAPER TICKET LINK. ONLY REGISTRATIONS THROUGH LINK WILL BE CONSIDERED

The Dale Henry giveaway event celebrates the third and final installment of Dale Henry: The Artist Who Left New York, a critically-acclaimed retrospective of painting, sculptural works and writing by the artist. Premiered at the legendary Clocktower Gallery in 2013, the exhibition traveled to Pioneer Works, Center for Art and Innovation in Red Hook, Brooklyn, in Spring 2014. For more information about Dale Henry and this three year long Clocktower project, click here .

Amirtha Kidambi Quartet is comprised of Amirtha Kidambi (Seaven Teares/Elizabeth-Caroline Unit), Matt Nelson (Battle Trance/Tune-Yards), bassist Brandon Lopez (Vape Drip) and drummer Max Jaffe (Killer Bob). The group uses loose song structures as a template for improvisation, freely alternating between lyrics and abstract syllables. Oscillating between worlds of modal Sufi-like circular grooves, to jagged rhythmic precision and punishing brutality.

Amirtha Kidambi is a soloist, collaborator and ensemble member in groups such as Seaven Teares, Ashcan Orchestra, and vocal quartet Elizabeth-Caroline Unit. Kidambi has performed at Carnegie Hall, ISSUE Project Room, Roulette, Clocktower Gallery, Death by Audio, Silent Barn, Le Poisson Rouge and The Kitchen. She is the recipient of the Jerome Foundation's Emerging Artist Commission for Roulette in the 2015 season.

Amirtha Kidambi Quartet

The quartet performing at the Clocktower 2014 holiday party featuring the compositions of vocalist Amirtha Kidambi (Seaven Teares/Elizabeth-Caroline Unit) with her collaborators saxophonist Matt Nelson (Battle Trance/Tune-Yards), bassist Brandon Lopez (Vape Drip) and drummer Max Jaffe (Killer Bob). The four have crossed paths in the DIY underbelly, in incestuous circles of free improvisers, and uncomfortable chairs in concert halls of angular new music. The instrumentalists chosen for this project draw from a wide variety of vocabularies from hip-hop to free improv, each bringing their own highly individual sound to the group. The quartet uses composed material and loose structures as a template for improvisation, freely alternating between lyrics and abstract syllables as a vehicle for the voice. Oscillating between worlds of modal Sufi-like circular grooves, jagged rhythmic precision and punishing brutality, Thyagaraja, Coltrane or Stockhausen could be equally suspected as illegitimate fathers of their sound.
