thingNY is proud to present the three-show premiere tour of You Must Read a Lot of Jung, a brand new work written for the ensemble by member Dave Ruder, scored for voice, violin, clarinet, tenor sax, cello, and cymbal. Slow and spacious, Jung works over themes and ideas from previous thingNY pieces written by members of the group. Performances will take place in Hamden, CT, Queens, NY, and Philadelphia, PA on May 3-5, 2019.

At the New York stop on the tour, the ensemble is also very excited to premiere a new duo co-written and performed by members Gelsey Bell and Erin Rogers, SKYLIGHGHT  for voice and saxophone.

Featuring:
Popebama: Erin Rogers (saxophones), and Dennis Sullivan (percussion)

NYC-based composer-performers, apply text, electronics, and high-energy instrumental writing, to communicate to worlds beyond measly Earth (though we love Earth and the rich soil), through virtuosic execution of non-traditional sounds.

AND
Ravish Momin (drum kit and electronics) & Ricardo Gallo (synthesizers)

Momin and Gallo will perform for the first time as duo bringing together their common interests in music technology and its possibilities for improvising and developing original beats rooted in their backgrounds in the music of South India, North Africa, Middle East, West Africa and its diaspora and Latin America.
