Classical Music is Dead*

Just Saying Hey

Posted in random by The Nouveau Classical Project on 07/19/2010

We don’t have anything to say in particular, but just wanted to give a quick hello to all of you and let you know we’re around! Just posted pictures from our latest event, VISIONS here, with photos by Frank Wang. While we are too lazy to leave our air-conditioned workspace, we are not too lazy to plan our next season, which has quite a few spiffy things baking in the oven (more like burning nicely crisping in this weather). Also, our very own Sugar Vendil has just won a guest curator spot in the concert series of a very cool contemporary music festival in New York…we’ll dish the details soon! In the meantime, try making some homemade micheladas while you listen to some good music. And since you’re most likely in front of a computer, why not check out our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter. There you’ll receive our updates, along with the occasional cocktail/music/fashion suggestion!

Airy Eri

Eri Wakiyama‘s designs for Visions this Thursday have us up in the air, with whimsical, avant-garde pieces that integrate the music on the program. According to Eri, ‘The clothes I created for Visions are meant to execute a dreamy romantic feeling while not being directly girly. Like a broken down doll type of world.”

To complement Eri’s collection, the amazing menswear designer Edward Lorenz is back with imaginative designs. We can’t give away too much…but for form/FIGURE Lorenz designed some crazy headgear, inspired by the musical savants in Oliver SacksMusicophilia. We are eager to to see what he’s got brewing!
