FLATLAND explores the interplay of dimension and light through 3D LED sculptures built to create immersive environments. It is inspired by the capacity of light and color to elevate the human spirit and the transformative power of sound. Performances will be on a quadraphonic sound system. The event will take place at Knockdown Center, a massive brick former door factory in Maspeth Queens which now serves as an arts space.

EARTHEN SEA is New York City based musician Jacob Long. Since 2005, Long has released music on a variety of formats on a number of labels including Kranky, Lovers Rock, Other People, and Imminent Frequencies, among other. The music has been noted for its “swirling low end, pulsing melodies and propulsive barely-there rhythms” and his work has also been described as having a “knack for texture that creates a disorienting, lost-in-your head sensation that allows it to work as both trippy ambience or immersive dance music.
