We are so excited to announce our first Residency in collaboration with the Owl Music Parlor as well as over 30 creators! We have been working towards this line-up since the beginning of the year and are ready to share the curation with you. We view this opportunity as a way to diversify the local art scene with a fresh approach to creative events in NYC. Combining food with music has been our bread & butter since the beginning, but this time around we are entering some new fields of creation and collaboration.
Invite a new friend, crush, coworker, family member, and anyone else who wouldn’t want to miss an opportunity to connect with the NYC creative scenes.
We are selling a limited amount of full festival passes. Consider coming to all 4 days, for each will be unique to their own
As we sat down to start brainstorming ideas for the kickoff night, we couldn’t help masterminding rare performances that are specially prepared for a one-time occasion. With our incredible community of talented friends and artists, we decided it would be fun to match 2 solo musicians together for one sculpted set, with hopes of bringing a fresh environment for the artists and viewers at the same time. The performers have free range to experiment with the direction of the sets, evoking uncharted chemistry all while discovering a new sound together.
We are also extremely excited to present a different pop-up chef for each night of the residency providing delicious treats for our tastebuds. To start us off, we thought it would be appropriate to have our one-of-a-kind head chef, Mimmo, present his love for Italian cuisine along side a special cocktail created by our good friend & collaborator Alejandro Veciana.
For each night, we are only selling a limited amount of online tickets, so get them while they are here!

A new medium for AP to explore, we have been eager to have an opportunity to put on a poetry night/slam of sorts. For this night we’ve matched poets with musicians, each performing short sets of their original work. A fun interactive night of words and sounds hosted by Arti Gollapudi, a poet, comedian, musician and performer leading us into a journey of Ambient Poetry. Some of these creators have never performed their work before and will be collaborating with musicians for the first time. Singer songwriter/audio wizard, Rain Johannes, will be performing background guitar ambience all night to keep the vibes flowing.

During our visual night we explore the medium of film with a short film salon curated and hosted by
Julia Zanin de Paula. A special post-screening Q & A will take place with artists involved in the films. Following, we have a screening of “Meshes of the Afternoon” a silent film directed and created by Maya Deren in 1943 live scored by Talk Bazaar; experimental musician, songwriter & composer. We suggest you don’t look up and watch these films prior to coming to the event. Save it 😉

The final night of this residency we present our festival headliners performing in a classic NYC bill format. We are so lucky and excited to host all of these solo artists in an intimate setting like this. We are big fans of everyone on this bill and we look forward to sharing that excitement with you. Please check them out before the show! Also to note, there will be a secret guest that we are over the moon and honored to have close out our first Ambient Pasta residency at the Owl Music Parlor.
I wouldn’t miss this one if I were you 😉
To top it all off with some spice, we will have Chef Karina Garcia of Cocina Consuelo in the house preparing some delicious Mexican dishes. We have been wanting to collaborate with Chef Karina for a long time and we are beyond stoked to have her and her food for this epic finale! We figured it is the perfect pairing opportunity with Weeze’s Margaritas 😉
