“Collapses” Album Release | Threefifty

Threefifty Duo - Photo by Jordan Matter

Threefifty Duo – Photo by Jordan Matter

Threefifty fuses the folk-influenced, alt-classical visions of Brooklyn-based guitarist-composers Brett Parnell and Geremy Schulick, a soundworld in which sunny Appalachia co-exists with shadowy corridors. Reminiscent of the Scottish post-rock band Mogwai, Threefifty intermingles minimalism with the Baroque. Their new album Collapses echoes the hypnotic effects of Steve Reich’s music, in a more expansive style that summons the delicate light diffusions of iconic guitarist John Fahey. The duo’s “songs without words” have also drawn comparisons to Austin’s Explosions in the Sky.

Ending the program will be a retelling of Diana and Actaeon, featuring a new work from the composer and monologist, Doug Balliet.
