the Irving Theater welcomes
Ghost Vibes 666
Dante Augustus Scaratti
Monday, August 17 | 8:00p | $5
The experimental music series Weird Vibes has died, but its spirit has restlessly been floating around from place to place. In
August, it will land in the historically haunted neighborhood of Irvington.
Ariadne is a Brooklyn-based sacred music duo comprised of Christine Lanx and
Benjamin Forest. Their focus lies in the fixed framework of ritual interspersed with sacred and secular symbolism.
Influenced by the canonical hours, their sound contains modern chant-like vocalises, Anglican choral textures, and percussive
soundscapes in dense sonic layers. They are fascinated by juxtaposing themes, ancient structure and draw inspiration from
mysticism and dystopian fantasies.
