One of the most exciting music ensembles and shows to come out of Norway in recent years, the alternative metal band Next Life mediates the poles of violence and fantasy. In their eponymous show, sound and media artists Hai Nguyen Dinh (on guitars), and Tormod Christensen (on keyboard and samples) atom-smash heavy metal alternative rock with video game music culture in an airtight synthesis of audio and visuals. The strangely oscillating mixture reveals a primal, even organic heart in the darkness.
New York Debut, Co-Presented with Queer Arts Impact and Ideal Glass
