Mohamed Kubbara - (Set time: 9:30 PM)
Mohamed Kubbara
Mohamed Kubbara is a composer, musician and researcher based in New York City. During his bachelors in sound engineering and music production at Birmingham City University in the UK, he became heavily involved with the free improvisation and experimental music scene. Currently pursuing a masters in music technology at New York University, Kubbara has studied with Joel Chadabe, Esther Lamneck, Dafna Naphtali and Tae Hong Park among others and performed works by composers such as Eric Lyon, Douglas Geers, Judith Shatin & Jorge Sosa as the percussionist for the NYU New Music and Dance Ensemble. In the spring of 2016, Kubbara founded the NYU Computer Music Group; a collective of performers, composers, engineers and other creative practitioners that focus on the use of technology for music creation. As the collective's current composer-in-residence Kubbara came to specialize in composing open-form works for indeterminate instrumentation and improvised contents as well as their recording, mixing and production. His research currently focuses on developing interactive music systems for percussive instruments.

Victory Dance - (Set time: 7:30 PM)
Victory Dance
Using their pop songwriting sensibilities and fresh alternative edge, Brooklyn based Alternative pop rock band Victory Dance has created an infectious and unpredictable catalog. Though the band was recently founded in September of 2015, there is no shortage of history. By bringing together members of Fancy Reagan (Republic Records/Universal Music Group), Lady Radiator (Emerald Moon Records), and The Day Of (Warner Curb/Word Ent), Victory Dance was born. Kenny Collette (vocals/guitar), Bobby Kay (bass/vocals), Jason Krebs (keys/vocals), Chris Tsaganeas (drums), and Are Jay Helton (guitar/vocals) have cultivated a fresh, new alternative sound driven by passion. The pulse of the band can be found in the collaboration of the backgrounds of each individual. Drawing comparisons to fan favorites such as Imagine Dragons, 30 Seconds To Mars, and Walk The Moon, Victory Dance has mastered the art of unifying many styles of music under one umbrella that fans will be sure to embrace for years to come.
Red Hymns - (Set time: 6:30 PM)
Red Hymns
Red Hymns formed in December of 2015 and is currently in the process of releasing four three song E.P.s. The first E.P. is scheduled to be released August 20th 2016. It was recorded, mixed and mastered by John Naclerio at Nada Studio in Montgomery NY.
