Eve Beglarian's 'RiverProject'

This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.

Add to Calendar 27-01-2012 27-01-2012 15 Eve Beglarian's 'RiverProject' A three-concert series by composer Eve Beglarian. In the fall of 2009, Beglarian journeyed down the Mississippi River by kayak and bicycle. Traveling slowly along the spine of the United States, she encountered sights, sounds, people, and communities that inspired a new body of "experimental Americana" music. The series includes three distinct evenings of Eve Beglarian's innovative and compassionate music, as she and her co-performers embody the many moods of the Mississippi - at turns brazen, calm, destructive, life-affirming, but always beautiful and mesmerizing. Performed by the RiverProject band BRIM (Beglarian and ETHEL co-founder and violinist Mary Rowell) with guest artists loadbang, Guidonian Hand, Newspeak, Malcolm J. Merriweather, and Taylor Levine. The three concerts comprise a mini-festival of music from the RiverProject, with some overlapping repertoire in varied arrangements each night, and some repertoire unique to each concert. Everywhere there are echoes of the folk, blues, jazz, and funk that have grown up in the regions touched by the river. The music also reflects a range of texts and influences that arose from meeting and talking with an array of individuals along the river, which make a unique statement about modern day America. Each performance will feature BRIM (Beglarian and Rowell) and many special guests. January 21: loadbang, Guidonian Hand, Eve Beglarian, and Mary Rowell A lung-powered evening with the voices and wind-instruments of loadbang and the trombone quartet Guidonian Hand, featuring The Island of the Sirens, in which the harsh sound of a warning alarm in Plaquemine, Louisiana, is electronically deconstructed alongside a plaintive text by Rilke about returning home after a long journey without any words to describe it. January 27: Newspeak, Eve Beglarian, and Mary Rowell An amplified evening with punk-classical octet Newspeak performing the New York premiere of Waiting for Billy Floyd, inspired by Beglarian's visit to the ghost town of Rodney, Mississippi, and a short story by Eudora Welty that takes place there. January 28: Eve Beglarian, Taylor Levine, Mary Rowell, and Malcolm J. Merriweather An intimate evening with the BRIM core duo of Beglarian and Rowell, along with guitarist Taylor Levine (of Dither and Newspeak) and singer Malcolm J. Merriweather. This more intimate performance will include the New York premiere of Well-Spent, which juxtaposes the Muddy Waters song "You Got to Take Sick and Die Some of These Days" with Leonardo da Vinci's serene thoughts on life and flowing water. http://www.nymetroparents.com/2015neweventinfo.cfm?id=102492 Abrons Arts Center true DD/MM/YYYY
