Dancing About Architecture

Because us writers rarely get to re-use others’ best lines …

I recommend you check out an event next Tuesday, November 25, produced by the Center for Architecture/The Institute for Performance Sculpture, Inc:

“Eploring the Hidden Music” has music from the first ever collaboration of composer (and architect) Christopher Janney and bassist/producer Bill Laswell.

Janney makes interactive sound and light installations, and the event will feature his music and installations, including real time visual music peformance and an interactive light installtion.

Here’s a sample of something you might see:

Peforming will be Trilok Gurtu, Sheila E, Dave Revels, Lynn Mabry and DJ Adam Gibbons. Choreography is from Sara Rudner.  $25 gets you into the Gramercy Theatre for this,


I'm a composer and musician, and I write about music—I do that here, for the New York Classical Review, at the Brooklyn Rail (I edit the music section there) and any place else that will have me, like New Music Box and Music & Literature. I also wrote the Miles Davis' Bitches Brew book in the 33 1/3 series.
