We’ve had a Tumblr for a while but only recently started using it more regularly…and it turns out that it is a better fit for our blogging needs. So check out our blog here from now on. See you!
Jay talks about struggling and making it as a composer. He just received the prestigious Charles Ives Fellowship from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, so we hope that gave him more reassurance!
Hear Jay’s ‘Things My Father Never Told Me’ at Amped/Electrified on March 10 at Issue Project Room, an installment of MATA’s Interval Series. Tickets here.
This weekend taught us not only to be sane, but to give a damn! Don’t forget to vote everybody!
…has a lot going on! It’s been a busy week so far…last night we hit a couple parties with our friend Charles at NYLON, including the Mulberry Glastonbury Book Party at Milk Studios, where we were able to catch a great performance by Kelis. What we’re really excited about, though, are:
So now that you know, throw on your chicest concert-going outfit (translation: something that’s NOT boring) and don’t miss out!
P.S. We’d love to hear your thoughts if you hit any of these…give us a shout on Twitter.
The shiny and new Juillard Bookstore reminds us of Muji with it’s clean, white aesthetic. The rounded shelves look like they could be found at CB2. Very cool, makes us want to buy piles of scores and books and CDs (we still need a little bit more convincing to buy a ton of Juilliard paraphernalia ;) …if they made a super chic iPod case or canvas bag, maybe…).
Thanks to everyone who came out last Friday to our Sounds & Silhouettes Listening Party! Funds will go towards supporting our artists and creating more great concerts. This event would not have been possible without the generosity of the following people: Val and Myn-Myn Schaffner of Nabi Gallery (where there is currently an must-see Kathy Buist exhibition up); Jay Wadley for providing our speakers; Ejay Jung, photographer; Marcus Sands and Santosh Sateesh for our drink mixers; our volunteer staff, Yoobin Whang, Steven Chen, Alexandra Woo, and Jenn Wang; composers William Brittelle, Brooks Frederickson, Trevor Gureckis, Ryan Manchester, Danielle Schwob, Victoire, and Jay Wadley; fashion designers Edward Lorenz and Eri Wakiyama; and last, but not least, our alcohol brigade, for making our open bar happen! Randolph Hall, Jason Jean, Justin Kantor, Melinda Lin, and Smitri Sateesh. Enjoy these!
We, too, were surprised that this quintessential Philip Glass piece (for God’s sake, it’s called GLASSworks!), composed in 1981, was a NY premiere. Enjoy these photos of Signal (super tight, on-point ensemble with a really eclectic repertoire) with Michael Riesman (=teddy bear, as demonstrated by the sensitivity with which he played the Glassworks opening), taken with a Droid Eris Smartphone.
