Dixon Place, 161A Chrystie Street, Manhattan
“I’ll be bringing my cricket farm for a cricket songs concert. For one evening, audiences at Dixon Place will be transported to a forest oasis, serenaded by a chorus of thousands of live crickets. Adam Brody, of CricketFarm, will provide an orientation on how to listen to a cricket orchestra and will lead the crickets through three movements, wherein their songs will change through subtle shifts in their environment.
Adam Brody has been farming crickets in his Brooklyn apartment since 2016. His cricket project explores inter-species relationships, crickets as a sustainable and accessible food source, and the therapeutic benefit of cricket songs. Adam has presented his crickets at the Free Library of Philadelphia, Spring Sessions Residency, The Jordan National Gallery of Fine Art and Open Source Gallery. His other projects include a self-help book about forming a personal relationship with capitalism, a techno music group for babies called Bouncehäus, and a series of meditational pop songs, under the moniker Big Beautiful Rectangle.”
