Patrick Higgins

Hudson, NY

Widely-acclaimed Patrick Higgins will perform a new multi-channel work for solo guitar, sampled speech, and four wall projection. Using  wireless hardware and a custom interface, Higgins will create an immersive surround-sound environment of pummeling guitar virtuosity played on 12 speakers. Exploring the unison of speech and musical pitch, the guitar is used both as a live sampler, video controller, and instrument, splitting itself into three contrasting dimensions of live art. Titled "Your Life Will Be Broadcast," Higgins' newest work pushes solo guitar performance to the brink.
