Fabulous review of Corey Dargel’s “darkly enchanting” theater piece about voluntary amputation, Removable Parts, in today’s New York Times. A few years from now when Corey is permanently ensconsed in the old Bobby Short room at the Carlyle, we’ll all say we knew him when.
Matthew Cmeil has a new website.
Steve Layton has a hot new piece for your dining and dancing pleasure:
Spin It (2002; 2007 performance) Alesis QSR & my FreeSound posse (sandyrb, oniwe)
Minimalist multi sax and keyboard barrage, to be played as loudly as you or your neighbors can stand… The technique is all Rzewski & Reich, but the feel is American Bandstand … “Dick, I’ll give it an 85 — it’s got a crazy beat and you can dance to it!” (& the kids are going wild…)
