Grey Gersten, whose work lies at the intersection of avant-garde art, multimedia, and music, has released this interplanetary video for his track "Press Your Heart Against The Screen," from his new album Naked Light out today. The song, about the bridge between humans and machines, is complemented by stunning images captured by NASA's Cassini space probe in 2009. Gersten has explored space in his prior work as well, having composed the soundtrack to Tom Sachs' incredible film A Space Program about the installation artist's Space Program 2.0: MARS project. A force in New York City's experimental art scene, Gersten has collaborated with John Zorn and TV on The Radio, and counts Laurie Anderson as a fan.
Starting at sunset tonight at NYC's 537 Broadway gallery, Gersten is hosting an overnight performance experience with special guests, meditation, experimental films, and a dramatic reading of former FBI Director James Comey's Congress Hearing.

It’s good to be proactive, but when it comes to preparing for an emergency situation, one of the most important items you can pack is a flashlight.
