Ithaca Underground’s Summer School is the Finger Lakes region’s premiere radically inclusive music performance and education festival focusing on early-career artists from all walks of life. 17 artists including techno performers, producers, poets, writers, DJs, and MCs will descend on the Haunt on Sept 7, 2019 to provide what will be remembered as a thorough interdisciplinary performance-based dissertation on electronic music production, hip hop, and poetry. Sunday, Sept 8, 2019 will feature a series of intimate artist workshops in collaboration with the Multicultural Resource Center in Ithaca.
stud1nt is a multi-instrumental artist and educator from Queens approaching sound at the junction of and against genres. They have taught classes and workshops on creative production and synthesis at Moogfest, Ableton Loop, Pioneer Works, Vassar College, the New School, and Recess Art. Currently, stud1nt holds a monthly residency at Nowadays and an art residency at the Post-Contemporary in Troy, while directing production for the instrument company Mannequins. Also, a member of the media collective #kunq, their work attends to the politics of queerness in relation to sonic space, often manifesting in the form of audio engineering for contemporaries. Their work has been featured in the New Yorker, Resident Advisor, Pitchfork, and the Fader.
Kilamazego is one of the most talented producers to come out of the Philadelphia DIY Scene. Their work invokes a twisting mosaic of traditions, from intricate Congolese and Ghanian rhythms and melodies, to the room-shaking techno classics of Detroit, Chicago, and New York. If you need to pronounce it, just sound it out, “Kill a Man’s Ego.”
Your Mystery Guest

Black-owned and operated live hard techno inspired by our ancestors. Based in Ithaca, NY
