After Hours is a series of ephemeral installations and performances hidden amongst the Times Square district’s diverse venues, recorded for radio and video dissemination. Taking advantage of the twilight moment before midnight, and a surreal array of different settings nestled throughout the Times Square area, the Times Square Alliance and the Clocktower Gallery & ARTonAIR.org come together to offer tantalizing glimpses of these spaces as creative catalysts. Pairing musicians and artists with each of these unique contexts, the artists create work specifically designed to draw on the neighborhood’s history as a social and artistic melting pot. The fleeting nature of these late night experiences highlights the power found in taking the synchronicity and spontaneity of an After Hours encounter beneath the bright lights, and using it to inspire and indicate future audio, video, and performance work.

The Pieces are fading
A heart deformed by waiting
The thief of time is erasing you
Those people those faces, deep in my mind
I hear them parading me tonight.
Am I wasting time if you’re in my mind
While the moon is ripe above me
Well it’s a fine line, yea it’s a fine line
Look inside spy the clues
Candle light across the loom
The feeling comes and chases truth…
