Hi/r/stories | Unplay Festival

Hi/r/stories is about directly engaging with history. If ePhemera and REPlay both explore alternatives to specific narratives in “classical” music, Hi/r/stories is centered around narrative itself. Music by Frederic Rzewski, Iannis Xenakis, Paul Pinto, and more, performed by ThingNY, Face The Music Pannonia Quartet, and IKTUS.

Indexed | TIGUE

Elliot Cole – Tigue Trio – HANUMAN'S LEAP @ JACK theater 6/13/13

INDEXED opens with Brooklyn’s ObTuse AbsurdiTies, the solo project of Dennis Sullivan in which he puts forth a nonpareil product rooted in the intersection of music, theater, and analog electronics. Sullivan will perform a selection of works from Alexander Schubert, Georges Aperghis and Vinko Globokar with intent to create a product devoid of genre classification that will appeal to all ears. Elliot Cole will close the night with his project HANUMAN’S LEAP, an experiment in traditional epic storytelling through Cole’s unique melding of Hip Hop, Reggae and Art Rock. Along with members of TIGUE, Cole retells a story from the Ramayana about a monkey’s jump from India to Sri Lanka.
