Trouble (aka Laura Paris) is an artist and arts activist living in NYC. She is active as a sculptor, painter, projectionist, and installation artist. Tonight, Trouble also includes Sam Hillmer of the band ZS... Recently Trouble has shown/performed at Invisible Dog, BAM, La Nuit Blanche, and Secret Project Robot Gallery in New York City, the Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) in Troy NY, The White Chapel Gallery and Institute for Contemporary Art (ICA) in London, West Germany Show and Gallery space in Berlin, the Brno House of Arts in Brno Czech Republic, and the Vacant Gallery in Tokyo, Japan. Trouble also appears frequently as projectionist for Diamond Terrifier and ZS.


9:00 p.m.

Drums & Drones (Brian Chase) explores the sound of the resonance of a drum.  Within that resonance is an amazingly diverse and sophisticated assemblage of tones.  These tones can be isolated and extracted to form strikingly beautiful sound paintings.  

Accompanying Drums & Drones audio is Drums & Drones video.  This comes in the form of light and video projections done by artists Ursula Scherrer and Erik Zajaceskowski. The projections take the precise structural abstraction inherent within this project.  They emphasize its function as an object of focus itself with results often hypnotic and entrancing.
