Creating soundscapes since 1996, Datadrift uses an east-coast, hardware-focused approach, based on her love for the keyboard interface as well as the corralling of machines with unique interfaces and timbres to communicate with one another and find dialog or harmony.
Her principal approach is texture-driven, creating synthesizer patches that resonate with a mood or idea, then working with that sonic palette to create a soundscape that combines improvisation with sequenced aspects.
The Now is a 30 minute set of improvised musical experiments by a small group of musicians who may or may not have ever performed together. The musicians bring their instrument(s) of choice and perform in combinations that are directed by the producer. They only speak to each other through their instruments creating, in the present moment, a single seamless piece of music that has never been performed before and will never be performed again. A different combination of musicians peform each concert by The Now.
The Sixth Floor is an intimate performance space located on the top floor of The Candy Factory, a coworking space in downtown Lancaster that occupies a beautifully restored warehouse. Please be prompt. Our vintage freight elevator will be operating to take you up to The Sixth Floor between the time doors open until the start of the show. Don’t worry, it will be waiting to take you back down for an hour following the show! Stairs are accessible anytime. We hope you enjoy this unique experience in Lancaster city, where the performance is our focus.
The Sixth Floor is at 342 N. Queen St. in Lancaster but we’re located in the rear of the building. Street parking (free after 6 p.m.) is available on Queen St. and Lemon St. and limited parking is available in front of our building in spots marked TCF. Enter that parking lot from Market St. If you’re walking find our address on Queen St. and walk through the brick arch marked Building Character to the last door just left of the entrance to The Candy Factory.
