Overview

 

Guild Hall presents the debut collaborative performance from vocalist, composer, and soundscape artist, Viv Corringham, and multi-instrumentalist and electronic musician, Gian Carlo Feleppa. The artists perform solo and collaborative works ranging across their shared interest in improvised, found, and responsive sound. Corringham’s set-up centers on her voice, collected field recordings from her ongoing “sound-walk” project, and personal writings; exploring both the artist’s and listener’s sense of place and link to personal history and memory.

Fragments of her voice flicker like the light bouncing over water…later drifting into ambiguous urban sound, a backdrop for her intermittent vocal solo. It’s a gorgeous, calming piece, new age in the best sense.”  –The Wire, August 202 Issue

A contortionist of sound, Feleppa defies description. Playing sitar, keys, drums, vocals, and looping it all through a series of pedals, he creates original and spontaneous music; from traditional Indian ragas to original acoustic ballads to electronic looping mania.

*Your purchase of one ticket is for one Lawn Circle, which can sit a party of up to two people. All lawn circles are 6ft. in diameter and are distanced 6ft. away from other parties. Please bring your own blankets and/or beach chairs. For more information, visit the Theater FAQ page.

 

  • Gian Carlo Feleppa

    Gian Carlo Feleppa grew up in Amagansett obsessed with music, records, and The Beatles since the very beginning. Writing songs, playing guitar, and multi-track recording became a way of life, leading to years of listening and learning. 

    After receiving a degree in Songwriting and Composition at Berklee College of Music, Feleppa moved to New York City; starting multiple bands, releasing records, touring, working in record stores, instrument shops, and record pressing plants. In 2003, Feleppa purchased his first sitar and his life was forever changed. He accompanies yoga classes on sitar, performs and teaches multiple instruments and recording techniques to children of all ages at local schools and camps. 

    Currently, Feleppa is focused on his new band, Student Body, his 10 year old daughter, Ea, and sharing the joy of hearing sound with children in the Hamptons communities.
