The six men started chiming into the church stage --in their lab technician-meets-butcher outfits-- making sweet synchronized sounds with gold bells in hand. Meet Pantha du Prince & the Bell Laboratory.

One by one they headed towards their instrument --laptop, drums, bell carillon, etc!-- and slowly built the weird cloud we were to float on all night.

We wanted to dance, we shook the pews, we wanted to clap but there was no time to stop for breaks! [Cheep & Snail]

Pantha Du Prince released a collaborative album with The Bell Laboratory, Elements of Light, earlier this year, and after playing Primavera Sound in Barcelona over the weekend (5/25), they came across the sea for their first collaborative US show. The show took place last night (5/28) in NYC at West Park Church on the Upper West Side as part of the Red Bull Music Academy residency.

A picture and an excerpt of a review of last night's show are above. Some videos of their set at Primavera below...
