TYFT (Hilmar Jensson, Andrew D'Angelo, Chris Speed, Jim Black)
30 April 2008 @ The Stone
short take: Andrew D'Angelo still kicks ass.
(Also: he is selling t-shirts with a CT scan of his brain on them. I bought one.)
Making Music: Frederic Rzewski (with Stephen Drury and Opus 21)
01 May 2008 @ Zankel Hall
short take: Steve Ben Israel owns "Attica."
short takes: Corey's irresistible songs are even subtler than you think. Don't believe William Brittelle when he claims to be out of his fucking mind.
short take: Three new-to-me indie classical bands with three very different approaches (saturated, limpid, refractory) to building textural music.
