Join us at HausWitch for a bewitching preview of Lykanthea‘s
forthcoming EP Some Viscera
. Lykanthea is the project of Lakshmi Ramgopal, a multidisciplinary artist based in New York and Chicago. Trained in Carnatic music and Bharatanatyam dance, Ramgopal experiments with both through contemporary pop idioms, ensemble performances, and sound installations to create haunting audiovisual experiences.
Her electro-ambient debut EP Migration won praise from Noisey, Chicago Tribune, and Public Radio International’s The World (and happens to be the source of “Hand and Eye,” the theme song of Pam Grossman’s podcast The Witch Wave), and led to a European tour and appearances at Chicago’s Museum of Contemporary Art and the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive.
At HausWitch, Ramgopal and violinist Lucy Little
share songs from Some Viscera
, an album that explores the genre of the lullaby and the songs of birds with the sounds of the sruti box and strings.
