THE LUNARY is an invitational-improvisational musical rite and sound-guided performance series, created / curated by Genevieve Fernworthy (Lauds). Since 2016, the series facilitates a space in which attendees can sonically work through and reflect uponthe previous intervals of time—a personal period of review— and offers an examination of conscience + a renewal of self-commitment for the upcoming term. Held in honor of the Moon, the monthly sessions seek to sonically disorient and realign both the performing musicians and audience participants; events are recorded live, and (unless indicated otherwise) were engineered by Martin Bisi at BC Studios in Gowanus.
All recordings will be released chronologically.
