Ohio-born Brooklyn-based percussion trio Tigue makes its own blend of instrumental minimalism. Matt Evans, Amy Garapic and Carson Moody exude a fluid musical identity that create energetic and focused performances. For this concert, Tigue will perform two world premieres and a new batch of original music. Commissioned works by Paula Matthusen and Elori Kramer will explore the sculptural and mechanical nature of percussive objects, as well as the effects of emerging technology on our understanding of the natural world, the individual and perception. Original music entitled "This New Forest" (2018) is inspired by ecological speculations fusing nature and machine—translating authentic and imagined biological systems into a musical world that is rhythmic, beautiful, immediate and physical.
Admission is free. Seating is limited and available on a first-come first-served basis. Recommended for ages 9 and older. Cocktails are available for purchase an hour before each concert at Ethel’s Lounge, adjacent to the theater.
