ABATTOIR plays a set at STEIM's event at Japan Society in New York City191
ABATTOIR is Audrey Chen (cello & voice) and Robert van Heumen (laptop & controllers). Rooted in free improvisation and experimental electronics, they perform music where Chen’s intense vocals and intricate cello playing are sampled, transformed and ripped apart by Van Heumen’s vigorous laptop actions. Together, they are able to create a deeply sensitive communication infused with a boundless feeling of release and letting go. Their first CD is out now on Evil Rabbit Records.
