LCollective is a group of musicians and artists based in Brooklyn. We come from different backgrounds and share a commitment to programming and performing music that we love in open, inclusive and collaborative settings. We value art that creates spaces for intimate and introspective experiences and brings people together to explore new ways of participation and organization.
LCollective organizes events in New York, New Jersey and beyond. Recent projects include regular participation in the Piano+ concert series in Brooklyn, performances at DogStar Orchestra 15 in Los Angeles and Klangraum 2019 in Düsseldorf, a retrospective of experimental music and film by LA-based artist Madison Brookshire in New York and Pittsburg, and concerts and recordings with Germaine Sijstermans and Gabriela Areal in the Netherlands. Upcoming projects include a US northeast tour in 2020 and the launch of our record label Love Records.
