About the You Are Here July 2012 Festival
“As a sort of anti-panopticon, the labyrinth explores the boundaries that we often take for granted about where one art community ends and another begins, while advancing the notion that the audience, itself a kind of community, should be stripped of its consumptive role and forced to discover its creative one.” - The Brooklyn Rail
“(an) “anti-festival festival” in which a bevy of versatile musicians and artists play shows within the confines of this tailor-made labyrinth.” - The Village Voice
“Sam Hillmer and Laura Paris’ You Are Here art maze hits a measured sense of eerie whimsy, sort of like being in one of the sets from the Labyrinth.” - Impose Magazine
“If NYC’s experimental-music scene seems like a daunting labyrinth, you couldn’t hope for a better guide than saxist-composer Sam Hillmer. Appropriately, his latest project, You Are Here - a monthlong installation by Trouble, his collaboration with artist Laura Paris - is an actual maze, one that hosts a variety of progressive luminaries.” - Time Out New York
