thingNY and Face the Music… In Space!
@ The Queens Museum

12pm and 4pm. Flushing Meadow Corona Park. Queens, NY

Over the course of three weeks, thingNY and Face the Music (the world’s only teen new music ensemble) will team up to create a short music-theater work for the Queens Museum exploring the concept of “space”. Using some of the compositional techniques from two existing works, Private Time and Endurance Exercises (both from the theater piece Time: A Complete Explanation in Three Parts), the intergenerational ensemble will develop this work through instrumental, vocal and movement improvisation, layering independent tasks and gestures into a larger musical structure. We’re really looking forward to this crazy adventure. This project is made possible (in part) by the Queens Council on the Arts with funds from the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
