Via App and Miss Parker

August 6, 4-6pm
Géza, 306 Maujer

Heat Waves brings together musicians of different contexts and practices to bring sonic experiences into our summer public programming. Heat Waves is an occasion to gather, listen, move, or simply spend a longer (and acoustic) time in our space.

On August 6 from 4 to 6pm, Brooklyn-based DJ/Producers Via App and Miss Parker energize our courtyard with live, hardware-based electronic music. As DJs, they are integral to Brooklyn’s nightlife, taking the dance floor as a space for experimentation and dialogue. In our inaugural music event, Via App and Miss Parker charge the performance space with vibrant sounds weaving between tension and euphoria.

Entry is free, and we welcome all ages and music preferences. Prior registration is recommended but not required.

About the Artists

Via App is an alias of Dylan Shir, a Brooklyn-based producer, DJ, performer and sonic field researcher. Their sound is distinct for its skillful weaving of moments of dissonance and tension into compelling, shapeshifting music that electrifies a dance floor. Their studio recordings, which emerge largely as an extension of their live performance, have received critical acclaim. This, along with their reputation for powerhouse performances, has made Via App a sought-after name internationally, appearing in festivals such as Unsound, Moogfest, Rewire, Norberg Festival, Rhizom, Sonic Acts and CTM, as well as venues and series such as Creamcake, Säule, Shanghai’s All Club, Beirut’s Frequent Defect, Tokyo’s Contact, Zurich’s House of Mixed Emotions, Amman’s Drowned by Locals, and CDMX’s Ext.

Miss Parker is a DJ and producer based in Brooklyn, as well as a community organizer and promoter whose work has made them a key player in NYC queer nightlife. Parker’s emotionally dynamic DJ sets have deep roots in archival music research, often centering on trance, techno, acid, and hardstyle as they developed in the 90’s and early 2000’s, as well as these styles’ continuity into the present day. As a producer, Parker takes as a starting point the specific technologies of the 2000’s that made the music of artists like Darude, 4-Strings, and Faithless possible, and situates them in a contemporary context. Their virtuosic, multi-genre DJ sets have put them in high demand for parties, festivals, and radio shows, among them Boiler Room, HÖR Berlin, F.I.S.T., Club Carry, and Fourth World.
