Robert Fripp in residence @ the World Financial Center (Friday & Saturday, during lunch & dinner)
"Robert Fripp, the famed English guitarist, composer, and founder of the prog-rock band, King Crimson, takes up a brief residency in the Winter Garden to perform his solo Soundscapes. Based on his Frippertronics explorations of the '70s, Fripp now creates lush sonic tapestries with electric guitar and digital effects. Each performance of Soundscapes is site-specific, often done in majestic spaces, and always created in the spirit of the moment.
This performance is part of New Sounds Live, curated by John Schaefer, host and producer of WNYC Radio's popular shows New Sounds and Soundcheck"
This is happening at the World Financial Center in NYC today, Friday December 3rd at 12:30 pm and 7pm, and Saturday at the same two times. Free.
