Sound & Space Experiments + Phantom Orchard will open to simultaneous music performances by Shreveport sound artists Jon Mackey, Ian Quiet, Generic Air and The Occidentalist in the voluminous and diverse spaces of our city's historic waterworks.

The evening will culminate with a special performance by New York based Phantom Orchard which features Zeena Parkins and Ikue Mori, says host David Nelson.

Phantom Orchard combines Parkins' exploratory and inventive use of the classical acoustic harp and Mori's digital sound and video manipulations using a laptop computer. In addition to their duo work as Phantom Orchard, Parkins and Mori have performed with bands as diverse as DNA, Skeleton Crew, Electric Masada, Hemophiliac and Bjork.

Doors will open for Sound & Space Experiments + Phantom Orchard at 8pm, this Saturday, at the McNeill Street Pumping Station, 142 N. Common St., just past Big D's Bar-B-Cue.

Tickets $10 at the door....

The parking lot at the McNeill Street Pumping Station is limited, says Nelson. He explains, "Please feel free to park along Common Street on the grass completely off the street or across Common on the service road... Also, parking at Big D's Bar-b-Que and walking up to McNeill may be an option for some attendees."
