Brooklyn’s resuscitated Silent Barn — an all-ages venue and “incubation space” at the bleeding heart of Bushwick’s art scene — is ringing in the sun this week, with an ambitious run of predawn performances. Every morning from Wednesday (tomorrow) through Sunday, doors will open at 6 AM for a featured set of live sunrise soundtracking. Local guitar virtuoso Ben Seretan and Barnyard steward Kunal Gupta will be hosting; Seretan, Bang on a Can affiliate and 1-bit musician Tristan Perich, the pre-recorded ghost of Yeah Yeah Yeahs drummer Brian Chase, instrument inventor Cammisa Buerhaus, and more will perform. Everything goes down beneath the skylight in the Barn’s third floor living room, and will involve coincident tea. Breakfast will also be served, should you desire it. Things should be wrapped by 8 AM.
Admission is free, with a suggested $5 donation to your performer(s) of the day(break). The full schedule:
09.18 - Ben Seretan solo set (guitar, pedals, voice)
09.19 - Cammisa Buerhaus (live foreground) + Brian Chase (tape piece backdrop)
