About thingNY:

The New Yorker’s Alex Ross called new music uber-group thingNY part of the city’s burgeoning avant-garde classical music scene “striking an attitude of resistance to mainstream culture”. This exciting new music collective, comprised of composers, instrumentalists and singers from the New York metro area, revels in creating and performing unrelenting experimental new works with passion and enthusiasm, oscillating between the “sweeter sounds” and the “punishingly loud”.
