Happy Place (NYC) and Camera Lucida (KY) presented by WUOL
Happy Place is a NYC-based band of two singers, two guitarists, and two drummers, performing music composed by bandleader and drummer Will Mason. Their music draws on microtonal guitar tunings, irregular meters, and angular, virtuosic improvisation. It is equal parts Glenn Branca and James Blood Ulmer; Lightning Bolt and Gerard Grisey.
The band has been praised by Bandcamp Daily as “jittery, manic, and restless,” and by the New York Times for “succeed[ing] at fusing experimental rock and chamber music.” The band’s line-up includes Charlotte Mundy on vocals, Andrew Smiley and Dan Lippel on guitar, and Kate Gentile and Will Mason on drums.
Camera Lucida is an artistic collaboration incorporating live interactive video and music for dancers, movement artists, composers, and musicians. Camera Lucida is Roxell Karr and Jon Silpayamanant and is based in Louisville, Kentucky.
