DISRUPT: Cuddle Magic & Frank LoCrasto

6:30pm doors • 7:30pm show


Cuddle Magic craft “high concept chamber-pop” (New Yorker) using 12-tone rows, odd meters, extended techniques, and unusual electro-acoustic timbres — a bass clarinet with a cheap microphone nested in the bell, junk-shop percussion run through a vocoder. They join forces with Texas-born, Brooklyn-based musician Frank LoCrasto, whose lush, open-air tropicalia permeates his new record Lost Dispatch, for an evening featuring individual sets from each act, with a collaboration in between.
