Thurs., Feb. 24, 8 p.m.: Collide With Scope Music and Toomai Quintet playing at Issue Project Room.
Collide-O-Scope Music performs work by Luigi Nono, Iannis Xenakis, Chrisopher Bailey, Douglass Geers, John Cage, and Alvin Lucier in a concert for piano, clarinet, and electronics. Their program “Dream of The Noctilucent City” draws inspiration from the phenomenon of noctilucent clouds, which offer a diaphanous window partially obscuring the intense light of higher, more brightly dense cloud layers.
The Toomai String Quintet is an ensemble devoted to performing music from the classical and contemporary repertoire while exploring and arranging music from around the world. Winner of the 92nd St. Y’s 2007 Music Unlocked! Competition for emerging ensembles interested in educational outreach, the Toomai String Quintet is dedicated to creating engaging interactive concerts for listeners of all ages. Toomai will play music by James Tenney, Scott Wollschleger, and Richard Carrick.
