Floating Points: a canary torsi, “Five Performers Demonstrate a Field”

Five Performers Demonstrate a Field is an investigation of how movement in a particular room affects a simple sound environment: specifically through Hemisphere speakers in the sanctum of the Old American Can Factory in Brooklyn. a canary torsi was invited for a residency through ISSUE’s Floating Points Program. The residency is not meant to culminate in a production but rather to explore the blurring of the line between sound and movement and to bring those investigations to an audience. Moderators will facilitate a discussion immediately following each showing.

Collaborators involved in this project include: composer Benjamin Bernstein, choreographer Yanira Castro, installation designer Charles Houghton, performers Anna Garcia (trumpet), Amity Jones (dancer), Peter Lanctot (violin), Marina Libel (dancer), and Sam Silver (keyboard). Current moderators are vocalist/composer Maria Stankova (Thursday, January 12th), choreographer Melinda Ring (Friday, January 13th), choreographer Jon Kinzel (Saturday, January 14th at 7PM) and writer, director and media artist John Jesurun (Saturday, January 14th at 9PM).

Jazz Listings From The New York Times

From NYTimes.com:

Ellery Eskelin Trio (Friday and Saturday) The tenor saxophonist Ellery Eskelin pays homage to his mother — a Hammond B-3 organ player known as Bobbie Lee — on his most recent album, “Trio New York.” He appears here with his band mates on the album, Gary Versace on organ and Gerald Cleaver on drums, who can handle churning swing as well as dark abstraction. At 9 and 10:30 p.m., Cornelia Street Café, 29 Cornelia Street, Greenwich Village, (212) 989-9319, corneliastreetcafe.com; $15 cover, with a $10 minimum. (Chinen)

Peter Evans Quartet (Tuesday) The trumpeter Peter Evans has a mind-boggling recent album, “Ghosts” (More Is More), that pursues complex derivations of standard form. He works here with the same slashing band as on the album, with the pianist Carlos Homs, the bassist Tom Blancarte and the drummer Jim Black. At 8:30 p.m., Cornelia Street Café, 29 Cornelia Street, Greenwich Village, (212) 989-9319, corneliastreetcafe.com; $10 cover, with a $10 minimum. (Chinen)

Tony Malaby (Wednesday) The tenor saxophonist Tony Malaby leads a veteran trio that treads a middle ground between lyricism and abstraction, with Angelica Sanchez on piano and Tom Rainey on drums. At 8 p.m., Barbès, 376 Ninth Street, at Sixth Avenue, Park Slope, Brooklyn, (347) 422-0248, barbesbrooklyn.com; $10 cover. (Chinen)

New York Guitar Festival (Friday through Sunday) The New York Guitar Festival has been running since last week, but not with the concentration of jazz talent that converges here over the weekend. Joel Harrison, a guitarist and composer, has organized what he calls an Alternative Guitar Summit on Friday and Saturday, with peers like Mark Stewart and Dave Tronzo. An even more crowded convocation occurs on Sunday, in tribute to the venerable Jim Hall. Among the tribute’s participating guitarists are Mr. Harrison, Nels Cline, Vic Juris, Steve Cardenas, Adam Rogers, Mary Halvorson and Gilad Hekselman; among the nonguitarists are David Binney (alto saxophone), Chris Potter (tenor saxophone) and Scott Colley (bass). Better get there early. At 7:30 p.m. on Friday and Saturday and 8 p.m. on Sunday, Rockwood Music Hall, 196 Allen Street, between Stanton and Houston Streets, Lower East Side, (212) 477-4155, rockwoodmusichall.com; $15 in advance, $20 on the day. (Chinen)

Sex Mob Plays Nino Rota, Ellington & Bond / Honey Ear Trio (Friday) Sex Mob, the rugged and irreverent quartet led by the slide trumpeter Steven Bernstein, aims its tractor beam at three worthy targets here, two of them principally soundtrack composers: Nino Rota (of Fellini and Coppola renown) and John Barry (of the James Bond franchise). Duke Ellington, the third target, did his share of film work too, though it’s anyone’s guess whether, say, music from “Anatomy of a Murder” will turn up here. Sharing the bill, in any case, is Honey Ear Trio, a smart collective made up of the saxophonist Erik Lawrence, the bassist Rene Hart and the drummer Allison Miller. At 9 p.m., 92YTriBeCa, 200 Hudson Street, at Canal Street, (212) 601-1000, 92ytribeca.org; $15. (Chinen)
