Matthew Caron: Fyne, with a touch of terror and scattered howlers

Fyne is a video campsite made out of synthetic materials that invites visitors to inhabit a compressed natural world rendered through video surfaces and compressed audio field recordings. Campers are encourage to sit in the tent or stretch out on the forest floor and take in the shimming abstractions, which originated as landscape and nature photography while traveling throughout the United States.

Matthew Caron aka Your Friend Matthew is a video and installation artist who lives and works in Brooklyn. He has shown work and performed at the Art After 5 series at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Red Bull Music Academy, The Creators Project, E.S.P. TV, Bring To Light: Nuit Blanche New York, Cake Shop, The Silent Barn, La Sala, Knockdown Center, Output, the Fitness Center for Arts and Tactics and has a permanent street-level installation in the studio at East Village Radio. His music videos and experimental video works have been featured on MTV, Pitchfork, VICE, Noisey, Stereogum, Spin, Ad Hoc and 20JazzFunkGreats. His style is a fusion of first-hand documentary elements with live camera feedback, improvisation with light and musical elements, frequently characterized by the use of inexpensive or busted gear and long-term collaborative projects with Mishka NYC, Long Distance Poison, RAFT, Fast Food Music Video, Rebecca Gaffney and Australian psych pop duo Gypsy & The Cat.

Musical Performances by:

Emerging from the desolation and immeasurable skies of the Great Plains, Pat Noecker arrived in New York City on New Year’s Eve of 1997 to follow his passion for art fueled music projects manifested in seminal post-punk bands such as These Are Powers and LIARS. His groups have toured across four continents and performed in numerous cultural venues including MoMA, the Whitney, PS1 the Kennedy Center, the Getty Museum, London ICA, and the San Francisco Fillmore. Noecker has released over a dozen albums with his various projects and toured with icons including Sonic Youth, Suicide, and Wire. His music has received critical acclaim from numerous publications such as Rolling Stone, The New Yorker, New York Magazine, Spin, Time-Out, the New York Times, and more. In 2012, he toured and collaborated with the Bubu Gang, led by Sierra Leonean music phenomenon Janka Nabay whose album En Yay Sah was chosen as one of NPR’s top 12 albums of 2012. Noecker’s current solo project, RAFT, is an exploration of conceptual composition that fuses new and experimental mediums while seeking to collapse the boundary between audience and performer by incorporating crowd-sourced content into his performances. Noecker is also the curator of ASSEMBLE, an improvisational collaborative performance series that has featured musicians and composers including Bob Boilen, Maria Chavez, Taraka Larson, and Greg Fox.

Rebecca Gaffney is a Brooklyn-based video and installation artist/musician/writer who works with out-of-phase strobe light, reflections in live camera feedback, light/vid/music improv, transcendence, happenings, epic collaborations, aerial views, and “new shit.”

Mickey Fit is the new musical incarnation from Adam Kautz, the rebellious 20-something veteran of the New York avant garde underbelly. Bridging his harmonious melodies with dissonant surf hooks, Mickey Fit impels you to revisit lost childhood and the haunting nostalgia for never-ending summer. A multi-instrumentalist with a classical background in percussion and a penchant for dueling-genre remixes, Kautz brings his garage-psych roots along for a catchy and anomalous take on 60s protopunk.

Lazurite is NY artist Megan Moncrief. She makes videos, installations, and prints, and plays music and noise as Lazurite (her solo project) and with an ever-evolving bunch of collaborators and co-conspirators. Her sounds have been released by Fabrica Records, Whatever Forever, Buh Records Peru, Ilse Music, Boo Tapes, Obsolete Units, Crumb Dicks, and her own label Popular Chant (still in its infancy). She is involved with the LOXM - Ladies of Experimental Music collective, and was director and curator of the now-defunct Brewer's Mansion Gallery. Megan's day job involves making less-dissonant sounds on piano as teaching artist and accompanist at Play On! Studios, and she is currently the Saturday afternoon monitor at the Elizabeth Foundation's Robert Blackburn print shop (come say hi).
