TRANSIT presents an innovative Triple Bill Concert at Galapagos Art Space on Oct 14 featuring So Percussion, Tristan Perich, and Corps Exquis:

SO PERCUSSION has rightly won high praises for their tireless innovation and borderless virtuosity. In a set featuring brand new original music, the four fellows of So will prove once again that they continue to attract ‘both kinds of blue hair…elderly matron here, arty punk there’ (Boston Globe)

Fresh off the heels of his second successful Cantaloupe release, 1-Bit Symphony, TRISTAN PERICH presents a world premiere set of pieces composed for TRANSIT. Using an innovative system of digitized amplification, the intricately manicured levels of sound in this avant-chamber work highlight Tristan’s eloquent ingenuity.

CORPS EXQUIS is a new multimedia project between composer Daniel Wohl, 6 NYC-based video artists, and the TRANSIT collective. Using the exquisite corpse process, the artists work collaboratively to create a surreal multimedia world at the intersection of experimental chamber music, video installation, avant-garde film, and post-punk-avant-Baroque-pop rock.

This exciting show highlights the impossible richness of creativity in NYC’s new music scene. Not to be missed!

Missy Mazzoli & Sarah Kirkland Snider

Tuesday, October 5th @ 8:00pm

Galapagos Art Space, 16 Main Street, Brooklyn, NY

Tickets $15

New Amsterdam Records and Manhattan New Music Project are proud to co-present a double-feature performance of the music of composers Missy Mazzoli and Sarah Kirkland Snider. The concert will take place at Galapagos Art Space on October 5 and will feature members of ACME, Janus trio, MIVOS Quartet and MaNi. The music, which will be performed by varying-sized combinations of brass, strings, woodwinds, percussion, and female vocals, will feature three New York City premieres, including Snider’s “Shiner” and “The Reserved, The Reticent” – a solo cello piece to be performed by Clarice Jensen of ACME – as well as Mazzoli’s “Death Valley Junction” – a string quartet to be performed by the MIVOS Quartet.

Snider and Mazzoli have already proven themselves luminaries of the New York music scene and beyond. Mazzoli, hailed as one of the “most consistently inventive and surprising composers now working in New York” by the New York Times, has garnered attention as bandleader of the electro-chamber outfit Victoire as well as for her chamber compositions, which have been performed by the Kronos Quartet, eighth blackbird, and the Minnesota Orchestra. Snider, also a composer of ambitious and ethereal chamber music, has been noted to possess “an enviable knack for crafting moody, strikingly beautiful works” (Time Out New York). Her latest work, Penelope, is an hourlong, epic song cycle written for vocalist Shara Worden of indie band My Brightest Diamond and chamber orchestra Signal. With Mazzoli releasing a full-length Victoire album in September and Snider releasing a studio recording of Penelope in October, the concert will present a collection of recent chamber works from neither album which promise to further reveal the breadth of these composers’ formidable abilities.

Of her compositions, Mazzoli says, “like most of my music, these pieces are really about transporting the listener to a dreamy and unfamiliar but very specific place.” Snider’s pieces inhabit a similar realm of lush but uneasy beauty, a world she perfected in her large-scale opus Penelope. But unlike the latter work, these shorter pieces are more “classically inspired” in nature, containing fewer of the pop music and songwriting references evident in much of her latest work.

This performance program is made possible with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency.
