Brooklyn Heights-based Music at First Series announces its second concert of 2011, featuring sets from “dazzling diva” (Time Out New York) Mellissa Hughes and synthesizer player Lorna Krier. Mellissa Hughes, accompanied by pianist Timo Andres, will perform works that explore topics such as death, sexuality, and Craigslist, by Jacob Cooper, Corey Dargel, Ted Hearne, Gabriel Kahane, Matt Marks, and Eric Shanfield. Lorna Krier continues to “break down the boundary between new classical and indie rock” (Lukas Ligeti) with Selected Saccharine Songs Without Words featuring special guests Dream Massage (Peter Pearson, Derek Muro, Stephen Griesgraber) and bassist Eleonore Oppenheim. Videographer Jon Williams complements the new wave-meets-minimalism songs with video projections processed in real time.
