Halcyon presents DJ Spinna and Pianoramax Coming Soon…
“Gone are the New York days of cheap artist studios for the ambitious but low on dough — unless you’re willing to trek to Industry City, where we found at least one space going for less than $2 a square foot…There are still rent-stabilized spaces left for mid-career artists, as well as market-rate studios with a little more glitz (AC units, more windows), but getting one takes either luck on Craigslist or dogged persistence in the form of showing up and asking around, since the landlord offers no contact information for the affordable studios — yet — and while a website is in the works, the domain has yet to be registered (we’ll note it here once it’s live.)” [Read More]
“In this decade alone, Vernhes and the Rare Book Room have been crucial in forging the avant-rock-meets-electro aesthetic favored by the Fiery Furnaces, Fischerspooner, Animal Collective, Black Dice, and, most recently, Deerhunter. Yet this is a place that almost never was—which means that the story of those bands’ current success might have been very different.” [Read More]

Anyone been to the Headphone Disco party at Spiegelworld yet? If you’re not sure what we’re talking about, here’s the description:
“A simple concept with a spectacular affect. Take a room full of clubbers, arm them all with a set of wireless headphones, have two separate DJ’s broadcast to them live via two dedicated FM channels and watch the utterly surreal spectacle that unfolds. A mass of humanity, throwing moves, pulling shapes and singing along to what appears to everyone else to be… complete silence. Welcome to the hugely popular European phenomenon that is, ‘Headphone Disco.'”
The idea has been around since the mid 90’s when a group of French performance artists ran small scale installations at arts venues across Europe. In recent years thought it’s been popularised through the rock festival circuit and more recently through club events which has seen it turn from conceptual art into a full scale clubbing phenomenon.
HOW IT WORKS:
- Each party-goer receives a special pair of wireless headphones.
- Two DJ’s play from the same booth offering a completely different soundtrack broadcast in FM.
- Party goers can toggle between the two DJ’s via a frequency selector on their headsets.
- The club/event runs as normal with lights, smoke and, of course, dancing but with no sound coming from any external speakers.
- Clubbers can either throw on a headset and get into the groove or stand back and marvel at a load of people dancing and singing along to a DJ that only they can hear.
