Lock It Down
On December 2, 2015, C. Tara & David Gladden were invited by curators David Watson & David Linton to perform as part of the Lock It Down Experimental Audio/Visual Performance series at the Sump in Ridgewood, NYC.
Extended vocalist, C. Tara Gladden, opened the night by taking the phrase "Lock It Down" and breaking it down into its smallest parts, turning it into a twenty minute Dada-ist Sound poem akin to a night at the Cabaret Voltaire with Hugo Ball. Video Artist, David Gladden, provided live video for all performers. Improvising violinist, Laura Ortman, played a set with a special guest on vocals. And there was an all-star, drone, art-rock trio consisting of David Watson - Bagpipe, David Linton - Bow Bass, and Satoshi Takeshi - Percussion. Ridgewood, NY is quickly becoming the place in New York to see/hear experimental art, video, performance, and music.
