Lake Affect is an ensemble dedicated to the creation of a unique new sound art evolving from a blend of word, timbre, rhythm, and texture. Our aim is to create a new vocabulary that draws on both literary and musical elements, and to invent an artistic vehicle that embraces both music and poetry. Integral to this endeavor has been the ensemble’s collaboration with living poets.

Lake Affect is:
Tiffany Nicely, percussion;
Tom McCluskey, percussion;
Lorena Guillén, voice and
Alejandro Rutty, keyboard and percussion.
