I just entered the 3rd Ward Open Call contest.

Artist Statement:

"What artists and scientists have in common is the ability to live in an open-ended state of interpretation and reinterpretation of the products of our work. The work of artists and scientists is ultimately the pursuit of truth, but members of both camps understand that truth in its very nature is contextual and changeable, dependent on point of view, and that today’s truths become tomorrow’s disproven hypotheses or forgotten objects d’art… ” Daniel J. Levitin, This is your brain on music: the science of a human obsession, p. v, vi

9:57 pm - Cyberpunk/Steampunk/Geekpunk music and dance performance at Webster Hall SUNDAY July 11th

Psyche Corporation is performing on Sunday July 11th at Webster Hall in Manhattan. Psyche Corp. is a recent addition to Gilded Age Records (the steampunk music label) and last performed at the debut of Dorian's Parlor, an ongoing steampunk event in Philly. At the show this Sunday, we are performing with a professional dance company for the first time, with especially excellent choreography for two of our songs:

The Ceiling, a narrative about a hotel going insane, available for free mp3 download here: http://psychecorporation.com/mp3/index.html (just scroll down to the information about our latest album, Pretend, where The Ceiling features.

Pound of Flesh, a song from our next album, describing a dialogue between a patient and her illness, interwoven with riveting piano compositions and tribal singing as well as the DNA of the poliovirus embedded in the percussion. This song is so new it hasn't been mastered yet, so the only place you can hear it is from the audience at a Psyche Corp. show.

Now we briefly interrupt this announcement with a photo from a recent Psyche Corp. shoot:

...and we're back! Important show information below:

Psyche Corporation is performing on July 11th, Sunday (that's tomorrow or today depending on when you read this) at Webster Hall, the Grand Hall (biggest room), from 5:30-5:50pm during the QAS fashion show.
