Ecstatic Summer

Ecstatic-Summer-2013

This year’s Ecstatic Summer event, organized by New Amsterdam Presents in association with Kaufman Music Center, features two full sets of newly commissioned, collaboratively-based music; one for brass and the other for percussion. Part concert and part “happening,” the two sets will be completely acoustic, site-specific events, designed specifically to fill the stunning waterfront plaza of Brookfield Place with over a dozen musicians involved in each set. Composers include Greg Saunier (Deerhoof), Dave Douglas, Susie Ibarra, Seth Olinsky (Akron/Family), with others to be announced, while the ensembles include a mix of musicians from different musical worlds, including members of groups such as Bon Iver, Mantra Percussion, the National, yMusic, Plastic Ono Band, and many more.
