Tuesday Night Mega Power Concerts
7 pm – loadbang solos (Carlos Cordeiro)
9 pm – the Rhythm Method (with guest William Lang on a new work from Marina Kifferstein)
Praised for their “uncompromising and unreserved . . . intense, and sensuously gestural” performances (examiner.com), The Rhythm Method strives to reimagine the string quartet in a contemporary context. Since their founding in 2014, the group has given soulful, spirited performances in New York, Vienna, Paris, and Lucerne, and tackled works ranging from classics by Ligeti and Webern to newer works/premieres by Tonia Ko, Dai Fujikura, Andrew Norman, John Zorn, and other living composers, including members of the ensemble. Through a mixture of thoughtful programming, captivating performances, and collaborations with sound artists, visual artists, and songwriters as well as composers, they present concert experiences that engage and challenge their audiences.
Portuguese clarinetist Carlos Cordeiro is stalwart in creating and broadcasting new music, collaborating with composers and different disciplines, improvising, studying and performing on the different instruments of the clarinet family. Carlos is a freelancer based in New York City, equally as a soloist and chamber musician and a member of loadbang and TAK ensemble.
