So Percussion, Bobby Previte and Special Guests

Live Audio Web cast of New Sounds Live from Merkin Concert Hall's Ecstatic Music Festival

Monday, March 28, 2011

On Monday, March 28 at 7:30 p.m., Q2 and New Sounds Live team up to bring you our final live audio Webcast from the inaugural Ecstatic Music Festival hosted by WNYC's John Schaefer. Housed at Merkin Concert Hall, this evening's performance features the innovative quartet So Percussion premiering a work by composer and drummer Bobby Previte.

Previte's new work Terminals, Part 1: Departures is a set of five concertos for improviser and percussion ensemble. The solo improvisers include Zeena Parkins, harp; John Medeski, keyboards; DJ Olive, turntables; vocalist Jen Shyu; and Bobby Previte himself on drums. Having been fascinated by the architecture of airports since a young age, Previte's work is a musical interpretation and graphic representation of their structure and form. 

This performance of Bobby Previte's piece Terminals, Part 1 marks the fourth and final New Sounds Live Webcasts on Q2 from the inaugural Ecstatic Music Festival. The previous three were the 2011 People's Commissioning Fund concert, Newspeak and Darcy James Argue's Secret Society and Shara Worden and yMusic. All three concerts are offered as on-demand streams for your continued listening pleasure.
