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
Ben Bennett/Michael Foster
Teodora Stepancic & Assaf Gidron (curators of the eclectic and cerebral Piano+ series) will open the second night with a minimal set for Casio keyboards and electronics, paired with the explosive, shape-shifting duo of saxophonist Michael Foster and percussionist Ben Bennett. The evening concludes with a rare performance of Berlin-based Catherine Lamb’s Curvo Totalis, an experiential, long-form work for resonant metals and synthesized sound featuring the dynamic piano percussion quartet, yarn|wire.
Tickets: $10 advance, $15 cash only at the door
This festival is produced with support of 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)
