March 22nd 2019 - Event Horizon Series presents Errant Space, Purna
Errant Space is a project of composer/recordist Craig Chin. Its primary goal is environmental enhancement through sound. Performances are site-specific, spontaneous compositions influenced by both the physical characteristics of the space they are performed in and the occupants of that space. Craig also produces the Errant Space Podcast which has featured solo performances as well as collaborations with other sonic explorers. It has been posted monthly since 2015. Find it and other recordings at http://www.errant.space/.
Purna is the east coast based trio of Elliot Perry, John Laslo and Shawn Maguire. Formed as an ambient writing project in 2016 they released their first full length “Grachiel” on AM 800 Sound last year. Stripping compositions down to merely a chord; Purna compiles guitar and synth drones, weather beaten cassettes, and found sounds to create their dense, foggy soundscape.
