Oceans Eat Cities

  • The Cell

This concert presents a variety of works including Oceans Eat Cities, a world premiere by composer Neil Rolnick, with video by Luke DuBois. Oceans Eat Cities realizes actual climate data by creating a clear musical theme that is submerged in stages according to the percentage of cities consumed by rising seas. The piece is written for and will be performed by Face the Music and their stunningly virtuosic teen string quartet, Quartet: This Side Up. A full-fledged player in New York City’s vibrant contemporary classical scene, FTM, directed by Jennifer Undercofler, has rapidly become what Allan Kozinn of the New York Times has called “a force in the New York new-music world.”
Also on the program, FTM will team up with new music monster violinist Mary Rowell (ETHEL founding member), to present a variety of new and recent works by Sam Friedman, Katherine Hoover, Paris Lavidis, Missy Mazzoli, Terry Riley, Daniel Bernard Roumain and Caroline Shaw.

Tracy Silverman: "This performance is a special opportunity for me to demonstrate the range and versatility of the six-string electric violin and what I refer to as 21st-century violin playing - which is fully immersed in and reflects the popular, multicultural landscape of contemporary American musical life."

Album Release
The concert will also serve as the album release party for Tracy's new album Between the Kiss and the Chaos, which the New York Times praised for the way it "conjures expansive colorful sound worlds."

Party
