From 8 p.m. to 11 p.m., The Long Island Creative Vortex in coordination with the East End Arts Council brings the traveling project "Shifting Reality Across Long Island" to the Southampton Cultural Center with musical guest Ravalias
The Long Island Creative Vortex is a Long Island based collaborative made up of local artists of all types with the mission to promote our local arts as an important part of the Long Island experience. The Long Island Creative Vortex designed "Shifting Reality Across Long Island" as a traveling project based on expressing reality while merging the local community to the the artistic minds of Long Island. The project is based on a central piece "Reality," which is brought from location to location and is constantly repainted by anyone who would like to leave their mark keeping Reality Shifting throughout this collaborative event.
Each 'Shifting' session is accompanied by by music preformed by local musicians and/or local DJs to create a total sensory overload to this interactive experience. "Shifting Reality" will include the music of Ravalias which is a trip-hop/electronic trio based out of New York. Featuring Hannah Sumner's
voice, Ryan Broderick's
drumming, and Colin Kasprowicz's
bass/electronics, the band blends old sounds with new sounds, performs original compositions and improvisations, and has a penchant for making the outrageous seem effortless in a live setting. No two shows are the same, and no listener is left untouched after experiencing Ravalias.
