Identity Pitches: CORY ARCANGEL & Stine Janvin with String Noise
February 4, 2023 | 8 PM EST

Flamboyán Theater at The Clemente
107 Suffolk St, New York, NY 10002

ISSUE and Primary Information are pleased to present the New York premiere of Identity Pitches. Stine Janvin and CORY ARCANGEL will debut performances of scores and an audiovisual performance based on the knitting patterns for traditional Norwegian sweaters known as Lusekofte. The event serves as a live manifestation of the book of the same name, recently published by Primary Information. The scores will be performed by an ensemble consisting of Janvin, Arcangel, and the renowned violin duo String Noise, composed of Conrad Harris and Pauline Kim Harris.

Utilizing three of the most popular designs of this ubiquitous Nordic garment, Janvin has created scores by mapping the knitting patterns onto the harmonic and subharmonic series, and integrating the tuning principles of traditional Norwegian instruments. The resulting scores are further manipulated by Arcangel using a custom, “deep-fried” coding script to create a series of image glitches. Mirroring the structure of the book, the performance will include stories and conversation.
