To kick off the beginning of its residency, The Syndicate for the New Arts is proud to present a collaborative performance of Alvin Lucier’s I am sitting in a room aptly re-titled We are sitting in a room. On behalf of The Syndicate, St. John’s Ohio City, and The Episcopal Diocese, you are cordially invited to experience the inaugural event of The Syndicate’s fantastic residency. The performance will take place on February 19 at 7:00 pm at St. Johns Ohio City located at 2600 Church Ave.

For this concert, The Syndicate is proud to showcase the fantastic space of St. John’s Ohio City. We are sitting in a room will bring the audience and ensemble together to activate the reverberant frequencies of the room through speech. By reciting a text together, and repeatedly playing the recording of that text back into the room, we will experience the music inherent in this historical landmark.

Electronics and playback by John Burnett
