Qubit is a contemporary music and performance art initiative founded in 2010. Its principal mission is to foster the development of emergent voices by working with young composers whose work has yet to reach wide audiences, and to explore and develop new and experimental technologies as they relate to performance practice, sonic aesthetics, and public engagement.

EVENTS:




10/31/20 - "Out/With/In" on Governors Island


Out/With/In is a day-long experience where the psychological disorientation of the pandemic is applied to instrumental and environmental sound, deliriously blurring the lines between audience and performer, concert and installation, sound and space. A sonic happening that situates social distancing at the heart of the musical experience as opposed to a necessary condition of being together publicly, Out/With/In does more than just take music outdoors, it brings the outdoors into music itself.
Featuring music by:
Marina Rosenfeld, Alec Hall, Sarah Hennies, and David Bird


Performances by:
Alex Alfaro, Caitlin Cawley, Ellery Trafford, Marina Kifferstein, Kalun Leung, KatieRose McLaughlin, Lester St. Louis, and more...
