Nightlife Highlights: Mark Fell 

October 8, 9. With his admonition of "I actively try not to prompt the audience to share my enthusiasm," Mark Fell wouldn't seem to be doing himself any favors. But the British musician and producer, who makes his first foray into the world of choreography with the multi-genre performance "Recursive Frame Analysis" over two nights at EMPAC, must be doing something right. A dominant force in the EDM sphere, Fell has released dozens of recordings to great critical acclaim, performs around the world, and regularly works in sound installation, creating site-specific pieces for a growing list of venues. This return to the RPI-associated arts center "emphasizes highly formalized aesthetic strategies: arrangements of intensely saturated light, raw synthetic sound, disrupted rhythmic structures, and kinetic systems that urge the audience to their perceptual and cognitive boundaries." (Vhvl, Daedulus, and Ikonika spin October 2; Oneohtrix Point Never premieres new work October 16.) 8pm. $18. (518) 276-3921. Empac.rpi.edu.

  • CD Review: Christine Spero's "Spero Plays Nyro"

    Why and how dare she devote an entire album to songs by Laura Nyro when we can just listen to the originals on Spotify? I'll tell you why. Because Christine Spero fully inhabits these songs, uncovers hidden nuances, and with her stunning ensemble—including drummer Peter O'Brien, bassist Scott Petito, saxophonist Elliot Spero, and Christine's own magic hands on the ivories.
