New York’s West Village, once a center of radicalism in the arts and politics, is now home to a lot of overpriced restaurants, yuppies, and spoiled NYU kids. Occasionally, however, there’s a reminder of the kind of experimentation that used to go on. Tilt Brass’s May 30 chamber music concert was just such an occurrence. The diverse program performed at the Greenwich House Music School explored a myriad of sounds on brass instruments that was full of substance and experimentation.

For this Hang #3, Timothy Andres welcomed us in his Brooklyn apartment. We talked about his Nonesuch album (Shy and Mighty), about popular music, typefaces and fresh mozzarella.
Here is the interview:
And here is a beautiful recording of Timothy playing At the River (2011) dedicated to Ingram Marshall, “whose work merges sacred and secular in mysterious and beautiful ways.”
Timothy Andres (b. 1985, Palo Alto, CA) is a composer and pianist. He grew up in rural Connecticut and lives in Brooklyn, NY. His compositions meld a classical-music upbringing with diverse interests in the natural world, graphic arts, technology, cooking, and photography. He has been praised for his “acute ear” by the New York Times’s Anthony Tommasini and “stubborn nose” by the New Yorker’s Alex Ross.
