“Outline: Winter”

Like any self-respecting young arts space, Knockdown Center is carved from the shell of a former factory. By now, it’s probably best to ignore the political implications of aesthetes revelling where their ancestors once made doorframes and simply enjoy this cavernous, ravishing Goliath in Maspeth, Queens. On Feb. 29, Knockdown inaugurates “Outline: Winter,”体育投注网平台 a shrewdly programmed showcase that prizes novel sounds over boldface names. The headliners, John Maus and Boy Harsher, plus the band Patience, foreground a brooding undercurrent of eighties synth pop. Bleaker still is Katie Gately, whose every note suggests the score to a particularly harrowing contemporary-dance recital. On her heart-stopping new album, “Loom,” Gately navigates the death of her mother, crooning over distorted samples of animal howls, earthquakes, and a closing coffin. It’s haunted music seemingly tailor-made to echo through a ghostly old factory.
