New Music Concert Series

Early-onset dementia? Hereditary insanity? Whatever the cause, I am hosting a new music series starting this September. The Ivanhoe Artists of Paterson are allowing me to use the Ivanhoe Wheelhouse, a 19th century mill building with excellent acoustics. All concerts take place on the 3rd Sunday of the month at 1pm.

The focus for this series is a cross-genre survey of experimental music, including free jazz, new classical, electronic and ambient styles. Most of the musicians will be from New Jersey, but I’ll also be showcasing some artists from New York and Pennsylvania.

If this sounds suitably quixotic, please give the Facebook page a Like, or go to the web site and subscribe and you’ll get concert announcements as they happen. Thanks!

ArtCrime – New Performance Ensemble

Arising out of the Bergen County Experimental Musician Meetups, there is a new experimental performance ensemble in Northern New Jersey: ArtCrime!

We held our first practice today, which went really well. We probably have the seeds of three pieces from what we worked on today. Members to date include Bob Siebert on kalimba and circuit-bent keyboard, Darren Bergstein on rhythm and effects, Steve Orbach on sopranino sax and rhythm, Frank Joliffe on guitar and myself on keyboard and baritone sax.

New practice is next week and we’re looking forward to see what we can do with this grouping of individuals.
