About this Event

Step into a realm of musical innovation and artistic wonder as we invite you to join us for an unforgettable evening celebrating the release of 'NEW NATURE,' the latest single from Bohemian Cristal Instrument, an avant-garde music centered around one of a kind instrument from glass, helmed by Czech artist Lenka Morávková.

Prepare to witness a live performance like no other - a full band experience, where Bohemian Cristal Instrument will be accompanied by a talented ensemble of musicians (Ariel Sol on harp, Dan Burdman on drums) and visual artists (Chris Soohoo, Jonathan Gudino).

Let yourself be enveloped in a captivating fusion of ambient, cinematic, and experimental sounds seamlessly blended with minimal techno, all brought to life through the extraordinary Bohemian Cristal Instrument.

Artist quote: To me, BCI (they/them) is not an instrument but a genderless, post-human entity with its own vibrant agency. It transforms the local tradition of Czech glass into both physical and sonic forms. In our collaboration, I strive to respect its natural sound tendencies and moods, acting more as a mediator between the instrument and the audience, without imposing too much of myself. Inspired by Barthes' concept of the death of the author, I similarly relinquish my composer's ego, control, and power over matter and thought, allowing the instrument to resonate freely in this world and beyond, and with the people around it," comments Lenka Morávková on her unique journey with the BCI.
