Jozef van Wissem
An afternoon performance showcases NYC-via-Holland picker Jozef Van Wissem, easily the world's hippest lutist. This rising talent has plucked (haw!) the instrument from its Ren Faire stigmas in order to create a pastoral, meditative world that owes equal parts to John Fahey shimmer, Steve Reich minimalism and the field recording techniques of Fennesz. With Christopher Willets, Noveller, Loren Dent and Alexander Turnquist.
