LCollective is a group of composers and musicians based in NY and NJ.
We all come from different countries and musical backgrounds but share a commitment to programming and performing music that we love and that is rarely heard in the NYC metropolitan area. We embrace musical situations that are open and permeable in the hope that they encourage musicians, composers, and audiences alike to participate in shared listening experiences, exchanges of ideas, and community building.
Recent projects include regular participation in the Piano+ concert series in Brooklyn, performances at DogStar Orchestra 15 in Los Angeles and Klangraum in Düsseldorf, a retrospective of experimental music and film by LA-based artist Madison Brookshire in New York, and concerts and recordings with Germaine Sijstermans and Gabriela Areal in the Netherlands. Upcoming projects include a US northeast tour in 2020 and the launch of our record label Love Records.
LCollective’s core members include Douglas Farrand, Assaf Gidron, Evelyn Emile, Jesse Greenberg, Matt Lau and Teodora Stepančić.

a harmony of many ears following the line, close to the ground or from a distance, barely hearing a vigorous buffeting of grasses and the laying of petals, one at a time, in the midst of it all.
