“1, 2, 3″
Saturday, May 11, 2013, 8 PM, The DiMenna Center, NYC
NYsoundCircuit – the multimedia salon series – closes the season with one of its most varied sonic and visual explorations yet. Featured is the one and only turntablist MARIA CHAVEZ, making it as easy as “1,2,3” with a solo, duo, and finally a trio set woven through the evening. Also lined up are ANGÉLICA NEGRÓN premiering a new set of songs for voice, clocks, accordions, toys, and electronics and violinist ANDIE SPRINGER performing “Dandelion” by MARY KOUYOUMDJIAN, exploring childhood manipulations of old home movies. Trumpeter HUGO MORENO performs “Toying” by Chelsea Music Festival Composer-in-Residence ERIC NATHAN. Saxophones wail as the NEW THREAD QUARTET delivers music from the lyrical to the virtuosic. DANIEL NEUMANN performs a multi-channel live improvisation, “A Corner as a Field” while the CURT SYDNOR QUARTET reimagines the architecture of Louis Sullivan in “Materials and their Destiny.”
