Lift Off


by Ashley Rouen

The ecosphere of the Lower Ninth Ward has been changing ever since Katrina. As the neighborhood revitalizes, art grows from and within the community. One such project inspired by the abandoned St. Maurice Church is coming to a close. Airlift’s final episode in their Space Rites saga blasts off this Saturday (1.24.) The brass section of the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra along with Guggenheim Award Winning Composer Yotam Haber will perform in front of Altarpiece, the sound installation of over 30 TVs rigged to interpret sound through light waves projected on the screens.

 


Quintron To Play The Weather


After 2014’s chilly Mardi Gras, all eyes in New Orleans are focused on forecasts. Quintron is lending his ears to the mix. The local legend will be staging the NOLA premier of his Weather Warlock project at New Orleans Airlift’s Alterpiece installation at St. Maurice Church (605 Maurice Avenue) on January 18. Alterpiece features televisions rewired to respond to sound and Weather Warlock features a drone synthesizer that responds to temperature, wind, sun, and rain.


Hot Boudin & Cold Musicians


Tonight, The Mosquito Supper Club hosts a Zydeco Boogie in the once abandoned and now repurposed St. Maurice Church. The Supper Club's mission is devoted to celebrating Cajun Culture. On the menu Sunday afternoon (1.04) from 4p.m. to 8p.m. are boudin and other hot food, along with ice cold beer and music by local accordion player Corey Ledet and his Zydeco Band.
