Abbey Arts presents CATHEDRALS XXXIV featuring
RY X (Australia)
RY X: www.ry-x.com
"The power of utilising quietly intense, passionate music to pull audiences in to an intimate space is something that Australia-born, LA-based singer RY X excels at. After the break-out success of his uncommonly minimalist beauty 'Berlin' in 2013, Ry notched up a string of sold-out shows across Europe, US, and Australia, in venues ranging from London's Royal Albert Hall (via Berlin's Verti Music Hall and Los Angeles’s Ace Theatre) and being the first to play in unique and powerful venues such as the Notre Dame and in the mouth of caves in the fjords of Norway. Ry’s debut album, Dawn (2016), was a sublime study in devotional songcraft from a singer who seemed both awed by and in command of its elemental emotions, and one that was nurtured into shape over months of – Ry says – 'hibernation' and 'emotional sweat' in the mountains north of LA. RY X honours and expands on his vision with his second album, Unfurl. Between its rippling beats, mellifluous guitars, poised piano and questing vocals, Unfurl does what its title suggests: develops as if organically from Ry’s previous work, blossoming in delicate new directions while holding firm to its roots." -Artist Bio

OTHER UNUSUAL EVENT DETAILS:
SEATING:To create a "giant living room" effect we offer an unusual concert experience with informal seating on the floor up front surrounding the stage and lots of pews, benches, and chairs around the space.
We highly recommend you bring blankets and cushions to create a more comfortable experience whether sitting on the floor or seats. Quiet and non-messy snacks/picnics are allowed. No outside alcohol please.
For best sound, arrive early for center floor area and any area on stage not marked with signage. You can also sit all around the back of the stage if you like but sound will be a bit limited there.
Please actually silence all devices. Turn off vibrate, rings, etc.If you need your phone on vibrate for specific reasons, please keep it close to you and not on a hard surface that will distract your neighbor.
If arriving late, please be advised that ushers may hold doors during each song due to acoustics of the space.
NO CAMERAS WITH MECHANICAL SHUTTERS (This goes for Press too unless approved to shoot during applause only.) That means silent digital cameras/photos are ok but we really recommend you enjoy most of the show through your own 'retina screens'.
Anyone exhibiting loud or disruptive behavior during the event will be asked to leave.
Absolutely no talking during the performances please, this room is very live acoustically and everyone will hear you. :-)
**We are unable to provide a separate soundproof room for viewing this event. These shows are very very pin drop quiet so please consider that when deciding what ages are appropriate. No cry room available at this venue and even voices in the lobby will be heard in the concert space.
