FORBIDDEN COLORS
A walk-about concert and listening party in the style of a roving electro-acoustic music mini-festival featuring performances and hard-wired installations. The event is named for a piece on Spiritual America, the new album written by William Brittelle (featuring Metropolis Ensemble, Wye Oak, and Brooklyn Youth Chorus) and music inspired by the mosaic of sonic worlds found on this large-scale work. In celebration of the new album (released in a special partnership with Nonesuch and New Amsterdam Records), selections will be played between live performances and attendees will receive a complimentary copy of the album.

MILFORD GRAVES: MUSIC MEETS MEDICINE AND SCIENCE
Drawing upon two decades spent developing musical elements from heart recordings, Milford Graves has produced a set of specific rhythmic structures that will serve as the compositional basis for his overlain improvisations. Using sonifications of heart data, Graves has composed electronic melodies by breaking waveforms into dozens of parts and producing melodies from their rippling sequences. In performance, Graves will embed the physiological melodies into his own live percussion, amplifying the vibrations of the body as a backdrop for his improvisation. The premiere of this new composition will flow into a talk and workshop with participants Akash Mittal, Dor Ben-Amotz, Shahzad Ismaily, and Jake Meginsky.
