The duo of JG Thirlwell and Sarah Lipstate, which debuted with a rapturously received set at The Stone in NYC on 4/16/14, will make its second appearance at the New Media Art And Sound Summit in Austin, Texas on June 13. In this project, Thirlwell plays synthesizers and electronics and Lipstate (aka Noveller) plays guitar through a multitude of effects.
In addition, on June 14 at the same festival, JG Thirlwell will present a program of his chamber works using musicians from Texas. The program will include both old and new works and will be played by string quartet with the addition of contrabass on several compositions. Photo by Javier Villegas.
