Listening is not the job of the ears alone, it is a larger phenomenon: a collaboration between many aspects of ourselves.

A collaborative performance by Stephen Spaccarelli and Ben Neill.
Ben will be sounding an instrument constructed by Stephen.

Stephen Spaccarelli lives and works in the Hudson Valley where he was born. Growing up here, his work has been informed by the landscape, as well as the natural and industrial objects that litter its fields, hills and riversides. Working with wood, paint, steel, glass (and just about any material he comes across), he constructs sculptural paintings as well as interactive objects, musical instruments and videos. Please feel free to give him anything you might be throwing away.

Ben Neill is a compose, performer, and inventor of the mutantrumpet, a hybrid electro-acoustic instrument. He has recorded 8 CDs of his music on the Verve/Universal, Astralwerks, Six Degrees, and Thirty Ear labels among others. Neill has performed internationally in a variety of settings including concert halls, festivals, museums and clubs. In October 2010 his music theater work Persephone was presented at the Brooklyn Academy of Music Next Wave Festival. The subsequent recording Songs for Persephone will be released in April 2011.
