Over the weekend of the spring equinox, the Vail-Leavitt Music Hall in Riverhead played host to “LoveSphere 20,” the 20th anniversary of a daring exploration of sound that has been bouncing through artists’ lofts, recording studios, apartments and venues in the New York metropolitan area for 20 years.

Words can’t describe what happened there, but pictures can begin to describe the occasion. We’ll be posting video to our YouTube channel soon as well.

Conceptual artist and musician Gary Heidt founded LoveSphere, first held in 1996 in the Museum of Sound Recording in Brooklyn.

The Riverhead show was a two-day multimedia revue featuring the music of Fist of Kindness, The Grand Pepper of Reality and The Hidden City Orchestra, as well as Electric Meg, Judy Sky and Stan Wright and Joy and the Weatherman, along with Thomas Edison artifacts from the Museum of Interesting Things, performances by the improv group Uncarved Block, and visual projections by VJ Metal Tiger.
