Event Information

As part of JACK’s Out and About series — with performances around the city as the new JACK space is under construction — Ensemble Pamplemousse curates and produces a three-day festival of experimental music and performance from September 19 – 21, 2019 at The Chocolate Factory Theater. The festival was created to bring together American collectives and sound/media artists working in the field of experimental arts, music, and music theater, with a strong focus on the community of New York City. 


7 pm doors, 7:30 pm concert
Daniel Silliman 
Zach Rowden/Robert Black 
Erin Rogers 

The first night of the festival features two Brooklyn-based composer/performers presenting rigorous solo material. Daniel Silliman’s emerging solo practice juxtaposes harsh electronic feedback with idiosyncratic networks of magnetic tape and esoteric sound synthesis. Erin Rogers applies a multivalent approach toward the saxophone family and theatrical music, often bridging rigorous compositional detail with playfully virtuosic narratives. Balancing the program is a duo of two New Haven-based bassists, Zach Rowden (Hyperion Ensemble, Tongue Depressor) and Robert Black (Bang on a Can All-Stars) performing a new work written with Pamplemousse’s own Natacha Diels. 

Tickets: $10 advance/$15 cash only at the door

The festival is made possible by support from New Music USA’s NYC New Music Impact Fund (made possible with funding from The Scherman Foundation’s Katharine S. and Axel G. Rosin Fund).


This event is supported by a grant from New Music USA.
