A Spirit Appears to a Pair of Lovers (A/V)
Gryphon Rue (b. New York, NY) is an artist, composer, and musician. Rue’s music, constructed of complex patterns derived from singing saw, harmonium, and custom synthesizers, discloses a fascination with mimetic potential—the ability to suggest biological actions, molecular events, possession, nourishment—and is above all, made with people’s pleasure in mind. The album A Spirit Appears to a Pair of Lovers (Not Not Fun) features percussionist Mustafa Khaliq Ahmed (Arthur Russell, LOLO), with ten videos made by intergenerational collaborators (Abigail Child, B. Wurtz, Keren Cytter, Robert Buck, Dante Lentz, Benton C Bainbridge, Taietzel Ticalos, DataSpaceTime). Rue is a recipient of a Roulette 2022-2023 Commission, made possible with funds provided by the Jerome Foundation
