Lea Bertucci, Recorded Live
In the June 10, 2014 installation of Playing Hooky, our livestream in-studio performance series, Brooklyn noise and improv bass clarinetist, Lea Bertucci, stops by the studio to deliver an inspiring set and talk with host Willis Arnold. Lea's mastery of the bass clarinet is apparant throughout the set, as well as her ability to manipulate the resonance in order to control feedback and produce a unique result. Lea also fields questions from listeners, explaining how she developed her sound, and the process of transitioning from a classical and jazz background to a more abstract sound.
Bertucci is an interdisciplinary artist working with photography, video, installation and sound. The emphasis of her work lies in the creative description of space, whether through light, movement, or sound. She is a 2007 Tierney Fellow and holds a degree in Photography from Bard College. She is one half of the (now disbanded) experimental music duo TwistyCat and enjoys the creative use of obsolete technologies.
Playing Hooky is Clocktower's live in-studio performance series featuring musicians of all ages and styles from cowboy music to pure noise. Recorded in our Red Hook studios at Pioneer Works and offered as a distraction from the mid-week blues.
The Playing Hooky radio performance series is made possible, in part, with a grant from the Foundation for Contemporary Art.
