Queer Van Kult

Queer Van Kult is an experimental intermedia artist collective from Staten Island. The collective curates a liturgy of performance, installation, and music with a focus on queer artistry and multimedia work. Imagined as a surreal funhouse of queer taste, QVK was created as a response to a tapering of dedicated platforms for avant-garde performance and art on Staten Island. The events produced by the collective intend to encourage an atmosphere of community, unbounded creativity, and celebrationall while providing a home for the cultivation of experimental works by local and emerging  queer artists.

Sludgemisers is the noise collaboration of

percussionist Nick Guttilla and guitarist

Jenno Snyder. Their semi-improvisational

compositions translate raw emotion into

baths of noise and cascading eerie soundscapes,

feeding off each other's energy. They layer

electronic and acoustic rhythms that derive

their power from the unmistakable primal

pulse of the modern human condition.
