The 2021 Progressive Chamber Music Festival

Source: Sirius Quartet Presents: The 2021 Progressive Chamber Music Festival.

For the 5th consecutive year, The Progressive Chamber Music Festival, curated by Sirius Quartet, features 6 such ensembles, each with unique identities and a shared desire to define chamber music on their own terms. After a tumultuous 2020 which saw the festival, like many others, assume an online form with minimal technical and financial support, The Progressive Chamber Music Festival has returned stronger than ever, featuring NYC heavyweights such as Billy Martin and Mat Maneri alongside younger torch-bearers like Curtis Stewart, Leonor Falcon and Juanma Trujillo. The festival is spread across two days in late October at The Garage in Harlem, and it will once again put NYC’s vibrant and eclectic music scene on full display. These are chamber music ensembles of the 21st century, not defined by genre, nor limited by the distinction between concert and popular music, and blurring the lines between performer, composer, and improviser. This is Progressive Chamber Music.

Anthony Braxton Explores Latvia at Skaņu Mežs

Source: Downbeat.

Anthony Braxton once told author Graham Lock that he was less interested in playing one good gig than in establishing “a body of work that becomes his own reality.” Fifty-three years after the release of his first album, the 76-year-old composer, improviser, educator, bandleader and master of many reed instruments has made good on that ambition. His 304 album-length releases explore a multitude of methodologies. No single performance gives a complete accounting of Braxton’s means and priorities. Perhaps in recognition of this, the Skaņu Mežs festival in Riga, Latvia, recently presented Braxton’s music in two very different settings.

Night After Night Newsletter

Two live-music outings this week, both of them phenomenally good. The first, in an intimate space just off a nondescript stretch of road between one place and another in Brooklyn, brought together three improvising combos: the trio MAW (bassist Frank Meadows, guitarist Jessica Ackerley, and pianist/percussionist Eli Wallace); the duo of flutist Laura Cocks and Madison Greenstone, both of TAK Ensemble; and a trio featuring Los Angeles saxophonist Patrick Shiroishi with two New York City mainstays, violinist gabby fluke-mogul and multi-instrumentalist Che Chen. Live visual projections by Laura Sofía Pérez accompanied all the sets, providing sympathetic vibes and ironic juxtapositions.
