Richard Horowitz’s Eros In Arabia comes to us as the fourth release from Freedom to Spend this year, with a visual for “Eros Never Stops Dreaming,” the album’s second track. As the bendir frame drum sets a bowing rhythm and the feathery wind of the ney flute floats above it with effortless mathematics, an embodiment of Eros In Arabia is intercepted by one of a generation for whom the tactile music listening experience may eventually resemble strange ceremony and circumstance.

Visible Cloaks will perform live at MOCA LA for Nick Malkin and Brian Allen Simon’s Monument, a yearlong series of performances by sound artists staged within the current installation of MOCA’s permanent collection. Considering the acoustics of the Grand Avenue galleries, Monument pairs musicians with specific pieces and/or galleries to enhance the viewer’s experience of the artwork through the addition of sound.
