We’re so excited about our upcoming benefit where we’ll honor pianist Marilyn Nonken with the NCP Visionary Award. This Thursday we’re going to assemble our in-house designed invitations together in the spirit of NCP benefit tradition. Can’t wait for an invitation? You can get tickets here.
In the meantime…we’re pleased to announce our 2014 Benefit Committee:
Jenny Q. Chai
Anthony de Mare
Dr. Joshua Fineberg
Joan Finkelstein & Alan Kifferstein
Barbara Dobbs Mackenzie
The Four Seasons, Volume One, and String Quartets.
Three cassette-only releases on my label got reviewed by Byron Coley in this month’s issue of The Wire! We are totally underground as fuck! My solo shit got compared to Roy Harris, Aaron Copland and Italian horror soundtracks!
The sound, a D major chord produced by an orchestra and a chorus, begins abruptly, full force, and fills the air for 20 minutes, like a sonorous foghorn with a stuck switch. It ends as suddenly as it begins, but there is no applause because the orchestra is only half finished — its members sit without playing or even moving, “performing” silence for just as long.
