Lecture: Stephen O’Malley (New York, 2013)
Watch the doom and drone metal icon Stephen O'Malley of Sunn O))) on the lecture couch at the 2013 Red Bull Music Academy in New York. In addition to his role in several of doom metal's key bands (Burning Witch, Khanate and KTL among others) O’Malley has played an important part in linking the metal sphere with the art world. His long list of collaborators stretches from Boris, Merzbow, Jim O’Rourke, Keiji Haino and Oren Ambarchi to French theatre specialist Gisèle Vienne, American sculptor Banks Violette, Italian performance artist Nico Vascellari and Belgian filmmaker Alexis Destoop. After having been involved with the Southern Lord and Ajna Offensive labels, since 2011 O’Malley is the curating force behind Ideologic Organ, which also serves as a nom de plume for his art direction and design activities.
