Despite our efforts, it is with great regret that we announce that Smerz will be unable to join us tonight due to bad weather conditions in New York City. Performances by Ouri and Saudade will still take place. However, those who wish to do so can obtain a refund by writing to Thank you for your understanding.

*Please note that the regulations have been lightened and that this is now a standing concert with mandatory mask-wearing only.



Smerz (NO)
Smerz, the Norwegian duo of Henriette Motzfeldt and Catharina Stoltenberg, seamlessly weave together techniques and sounds pulled from the chamber and classical music, hip hop, R&B, and hard electronics, with the end product always resulting in something altogether uncanny. With Believer, their 2021 debut full-length album on XL Recordings, Smerz formalize the boundless sonic world that started to emerge within each of their debut EP’s and in their running NTS monthly residency.

Ouri (FR/QC)
Of French and afro-caribbean descent, Ouri is a Montréal-based electronic producer, DJ, and multi-instrumentalist. Her training in piano, harp, and cello is what primarily influences her shape-shifting relationships with melody and bass. The cycle of birth, death, and constant rebirth sends her transcending through the creation of her first album, Frame of a Fauna, as she explores what lies inside the lining of the big dharma wheel: trauma, control, and vulnerability.

Saudade (CA/QC)
Saudade is a musical duo started by Montréal-born musicians Marilou Lyonnais-Archambault and Nela Paki in 2018. They blend electronic synthesis with a harp - taking this traditional instrument to new wavelengths by giving it a modern voice. The grooves are inspired by industrial dub, ambient, and jazz. The harmony between acoustic, hardware and software resonates with the ethereal voices of the duo. Saudade is the presence of absence, the dreaming of something you can never experience again, the nostalgia for something that has never happened.
