Music is back at Guild Hall this weekend in a socially distanced outdoor collaborative performance featuring vocalist, composer, and soundscape artist Viv Corringham and multi-instrumentalist and electronic musician Gian Carlo Feleppa. On Saturday, August 8, at 7 p.m., the artists will perform solo and collaborative works ranging across their shared interest in improvised, found and responsive sound.

Corringham’s set-up centers on her voice, collected field recordings from her ongoing “sound-walk” project, and personal writings, all of which explore the artist’s and listener’s sense of place and link to personal history and memory.

Conversely Feleppa, a contortionist of sound, defies description. Playing sitar, keys, drums, vocals, and looping it all through a series of pedals, Feleppa, who is part of the band Student Body, creates original and spontaneous music; from traditional Indian ragas to original acoustic ballads to electronic looping mania. He grew up in Amagansett obsessed with music, records, and The Beatles.

After receiving a degree in Songwriting and Composition at Berklee College of Music, Feleppa moved to New York City where he started multiple bands, worked in record stores, instrument shops and even record pressing plants. In 2003, Feleppa purchased his first sitar and his life was forever changed. He accompanies yoga classes on sitar, performs and teaches multiple instruments and recording techniques to children of all ages at local schools and camps.

Tickets for the show are $40 per lawn circle (which seats one or two people). Bring a blanket or lawn chairs. Guild Hall is 158 Main Street, East Hampton. Visit to purchase tickets.
