Knockdown Center : Ashcan Orchestra



Performing live at Knockdown Center for Site : Sound's culminating showcase, Ashcan Orchestra delivered a spellcasting performance featuring a sound-responsive light show, bells, operatic vocals, and more. 

ABOUT

The Ashcan Orchestra is simultaneously the audio/visual work of composer P. Spadine, a collection of toy, re-appropriated, and homemade instruments, and a revolving performance ensemble based in NYC since 2007.

On stages and basements, indoors and out, it has been presenting new music and rituals in celebration and emulation of the physics and mathematics that bind the known universe.
