Sink that Titanic

Very excited to announce that tomorrow night's performance of Gavin Bryars The Sinking of the Titanic in the Guggenheim rotunda will be broadcast live on Q2, and then archived for later listening. This performance by the Wordless Music Orchestra also secretly features Line C3 (Sam, John, Haruka, and me) playing percussion.

There is not one bit of Leonardo DiCaprio, I promise!

To listen to the performance live, go HERE.

To get tickets and attend ("boarding" ends at 8:40 and 10:40 pm), go HERE.

T.1912
Thursday, April 14 @ 8:40 pm & 10:40 pm

The sinking of the Titanic on April 14, 1912, has continued to move and fascinate for generations. Artist Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster creates a site-specific staged audience experience in the museum’s rotunda, inspired by this historic event and wherein the audience plays a role. Gavin Bryars's The Sinking of the Titanic will be at the core of the installation, performed by The Wordless Music Orchestra. "Boarding" closes at 8:40 pm and 10:40 pm.

sometimes the stick bag gets all the press

Here we have a little preview of the Ecstatic Music Festival, which is going to be exciting and groundbreaking and fun and everyone should come! I'm looking forward to playing concerts with Alarm Will Sound and ACME in January and then Judd Greenstein in March, as well as attending concerts by a spectacular variety of others. Also, although I'm not in this little video, my stick bag TOTALLY IS:

Yes, I like all those Stevens marimba mallets. What.

The Way We Bow a Vibraphone Now

Selections from Riceboy Sleeps by Jónsi & Alex.
Performed by Jónsi & Alex, Latvian National Choir and the Wordless Music Orchestra led by Jeffrey Milarsky. Live from the Church of St. Paul the Apostle, NYC.

(Sleeping GiantHappinessIndian SummerDaníell in the SeaAtlas Song and Boy 1904)

JónsiThe entire "Credo" concert from Lincoln Center's White Lights Festival is now streaming on Q2 here.

I'd be lying if I said I wasn't super excited to realize an excellent orchestrational use of whirly-tubes (7:55). Also, props to Q2 (and Nadia Sirota, and John Schaefer) for a great live broadcast and attendant web-chat that hosted comments from thousands of listeners all over the world (including one from my dad: "listening from Sedona, Arizona, where the vortexes are crying uncle").

When cynicism starts to creep in about music-making, these are the type of events that wipe it away. More please!
