On Tuesday, September 10, Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson shared the stage at (Le) Poisson Rouge with Puerto Rican-born multi-instrumentalist composer Angélica Negrón for a double bill of contemplative electronica and indie-classical experimentation. Jóhannsson, who playd the piano and triggered electronics on his laptop for his set, was joined by the American Contemporary Music Ensemble (ACME).

Drawing from a palette of ambient music, post-rock and orchestral music, Jóhannsson’s work ranges from film scores, music composed for dance and concert music that blends electronics with classical orchestration. Interested in creating simple, intricate narratives that evoke a sort of magical realism, Angélica Negrón writes music for accordions, toys and electronics as well as chamber ensembles and orchestras.

Engineers: George Wellington (technical director), Edward Haber (music mix), Bill Moss
