ECSTATIC MUSIC FEST: SXIP SHIREY & ANGÉLICA NEGRÓN WITH SPECIAL GUESTS
Tuesday, February 7, 2012
129 W. 67th St. between Broadway and Amsterdam Ave
New York, NY
The “mesmerizing” (New Yorker) multi-instrumentalist and composer Sxip Shirey teams up with Angélica Negrón, composer of “wistfully idiosyncratic and contemplative” (WQXR) music for an evening of fabulously eclectic and sonically wide-ranging collaboration. In addition to working together, they will be joined by a slate of special guests, including violinist/composer/Ableton master Todd Reynolds, guitar sound-architect Noveller (“simultaneously soothing and mind-wrecking,” NY Press), the wine-glass/guitar marvel Jonny Rodgers (“beautiful, fragile and consistently challenging,” New Haven Register). The teen alt-classical sensations Face the Music (“stunning,” “polished, exuberant,” New York Times) will give the world premiere of Angélica Negrón’s El Gran Caleidoscopio.
