Happening/Now is Andrew Suzuki, Benjamin Asbell, Chloe Andree, and David Elkin-Ginnetti. We put on artful collaborations of music, poetry, and photography. They will put on an event on Thursday, Aug. 22. The performance starts at 8 PM, admission is $5.
Andrew, 18, and David, 17, have both studied at the Neighborhood Music school and the Educational Center for the Arts in music, and perform segments of electronic and instrumental experimentation, using home-made synthesizers, layers of effects, guitars, basses, and brass/woodwind instruments.
Chloe, 18, is an accomplished presenter of surreal poetry. Her work has been featured in the City Lights Publishing group of San Francisco, and other venues in New Haven such as the Educational Center for the Arts.
Benjamin, 18, is a freelance photographer and graphic artist who has contributed to publications such as The Hamden Journal LLC and I Love New Haven. Seen through his lens are themes and depictions of urban decay, abandonment, industrialism, faith and hope.
These ideas all intermingle and project within in an hour of meditation, experience and introspection, and help us construct what is Happening/Now.
