NYsoundCircuit 10.1: LOFT PRESENCE

393 Broadway, 2nd Flr

NYsoundCircuit 10.1: “LOFT PRESENCE” brings you an evening exploration of intricate and colorful guitar sounds, enticing happenings of light and geometry, and new horizons of electroacoustic music. For NYsoundCircuit 10.1 the formidable guitarist DANIEL LIPPEL will headline the evening, alternating sets with the experimental duo POPEBAMA while the visual work of JONATHAM SIMS will be experienced. Interspersed throughout the evening will be driving DJ sets by CASA DE GALINDO. Daniel Lippel will perform a collection of contemporary music for guitar by Nils VigelandVineet Shende, and Taylor Brook in various tunings and temperaments that highlights the instrument’s capacity to reflect a variety of aesthetics with poetic subtlety. Popebama presents a hallmark adventure in fast-transitioning sound stacks, with a DIY flare and general overwhelming-ness. Staged in a series of stations, piled with small instruments and electronics, stage mixers, stands of varying height, and miles of cabling, the duo will present four boundary-pushing works by its core composer-performers Erin Rogers and Dennis Sullivan, alongside a powerful work from New York-based composer, Seong Ae Kim. Visual artist Jonathan Sims will present “Presence”, which can be described as “a work in light that explores the geometry of our feelings within tie and the present moment”.

Album cover for Passover

Passover, a new album from composer-writer Rick Burkhardt performed by thingNY is now available in CD and digital download on Bandcamp

Five years back we commissioned one of our favorite sound poets Rick Burkhardt to make us a piece and it’s brilliant and multi-layered, and we are so happy to be putting it out into the world.

In Passover a sextet of speaking instrumentalists, seated around a dinner table with a double bass lying on it, take turns relating stories of escape. Beautiful recorded by Zach Herchen and beautifully designed and illustrated by Jason Tseng, the physical CD is an absolute peach and worth the extra few bucks, in our humble opinion.

The album marks the first time in a decade that a recording of Burkhardt’s remarkable compositions have been released, and the first time ever that one of his extended compositions has been released on an album. Burkhardt is an Obie award winner known for his intricate chamber pieces like Great Hymn of Thanksgiving and musically centered theatrical works like Three Pianos. His work fuses explorations of extended instrumental technique as in Helmut Lachenmann, use of compositional linguistics influenced by Kenneth Gaburo, an ear for American speech akin to Robert Ashley, and an experimental approach to narrative inspired by his favorite innovative playwrights, Adrienne Kennedy, David Greenspan, and Wallace Shawn.
