Just off a 3-month long tour in Europe and India, composer/percussionist Lukas Ligeti returns to his hometown of New York City with live performances ranging from avant-jazz collaborations to a curatorial concert series in Brooklyn. One of the most innovative composers and improvisers on the new music scene, Lukas neatly bridges the classical-modernist-world-music divide. He combines his post-minimalism compositional style with other facets of contemporary expressions such as noise and electronics as well as indigenous non-Western musical and cultural influences.
