Come join us as we celebrate what has been a 9-year collaboration and partnership between the ALBANY SONIC ARTS COLLECTIVE and the UPSTATE ARTISTS GUILD!

For this gala fundraising celebration event, we will be presenting live music, spoken word/poetry, and special video projections from former ASAC members.  It's bound to be a great night, and though we will be sad to say goodbye to our home space on Lark Street, rest assured ASAC will continue!

The UAG will also continue, though not in the current Lark Street space.  All of the proceeds from this final celebration event will go to the UAG as a thank you for the support they have given to ASAC over the years.  These funds will help UAG continue as they search for a new gallery space in Albany.

Please consider coming out on Saturday - either to enjoy the music, hear some poetry, or to donate some much needed funds to the Upstate Artists Guild.  Every dollar is appreciated!!  And if you can't make it, you can still donate - let us know and we will help make sure your donation gets to the UAG.

Here are the details on the show.  Please note the early start time!  You will not want to miss any of this - music will start promptly and will include lots of surprises and magical moments.

Public Speaking is the music of Brooklyn composer/multi-instrumentalist Jason Anthony Harris. Working with voice, electronics, piano, guitar, and percussion, he crafts meticulous experimental music that focuses on rhythm and texture. Harris balances adventurous methods with an intimate compositional aesthetic.
Since 2012, Public Speaking has toured the U.S. performing music for voice, synth, found objects, radio and guitar pedals. 2013 brought his debut LP on Fabrica Records, “Blanton Ravine.” Harris has released albums that conflate vocal songs with abstract noise and polyrhythmic process pieces, and a collection of ambient recordings “Line & Weight” on Already Dead Records. Along with dancer Kendra Isobel Samson, he performed the collaborative piece “Pounds” for live music and movement at New York’s historic Judson Church in 2013. A cassette of the instrumental ambient-noise release “MOUNTAINMURALS” was released in June ‘15 on Tape Drift Records. This September, Floordoor Records will release Public Speaking’s latest LP “Caress, Redact.”
