Artist-Led National Sawdust Presents 93 Curated Performances This Spring, with Rarely Seen Philip Glass Opera, New Town Hall Initiative, and Much More

When it opened its doors in October 2015, with a mission of cultivating the creation and performance of new music and art, Brooklyn’s artist-led cultural institution and concert venue National Sawdust (NS) quickly became a vital component of the artistic community of New York City and beyond. Through its residency program and in-house initiatives, National Sawdust has helped shepherd an ambitious collection of new music, theatrical and multimedia productions from initial conception through world premiere performances and recordings. To continue this work in the coming months, NS welcomes back Artists-in-Residence including Julia Holter, the wild Up music collective, Glenn Kotche, Reggie “Regg Roc” Gray, Helga Davis, and R.B. Schlather, who directs the upcoming production of Philip Glass’s rarely performed A Madrigal Opera. Through these residencies, artists have the opportunity to incubate new works – with financial, artistic, technical and marketing support from NS – that will later have premieres at the Brooklyn space or with other leading presenters around the globe.

Other spring highlights include a full lineup of leading artists and new music luminaries serving as guest curators; the return of the National Sawdust+ series, curated by artists and thinkers such as Carrie Mae Weems and Jad Abumrad; special performances of music by Timo Andres and David Lang; a concert in the New York Philharmonic’s CONTACT! series; and the continuation of a new series of monthly Town Halls, each one focused on a pressing issue in today’s societal landscape. As this stellar collection of spring offerings amply demonstrates, NS continues to prove itself the unique and influential venue about which the Village Voice raved: “Nothing quite like it exists in New York City, or anywhere else in the world. … Williamsburg’s bright new diamond National Sawdust will change the way modern music is made.”

National Sawdust Executive and Creative Director Paola Prestini reflects on the upcoming programming:

“During National Sawdust’s second season, we have witnessed increased uncertainty and fear in not only the artistic community but also in communities across the globe. We see art as an essential counterweight to this climate—one that provides stability, renewal, and hope. Therefore, NS has redoubled its efforts to fulfill its mission: empower artists with unique resources to develop, explore, and speak their voice. Whether from entirely new works of our Artists-in-Residence, music performances of greats like Philip Glass and John Zorn, or activist performances from rising Brooklyn-bred talent, National Sawdust will persist in its incubation of the new and reimagining of the old.”

Artists/Groups in Residence

NS Artist-in-Residence Julia Holter teams up with Group-in-Residence wild Up this spring for an operatic staging of her debut studio album, Tragedy, based on Euripides’ Hippolytus, in which the wrath of an angry goddess leads to a series of misunderstandings and deaths. The album was made with the intention of eventually performed it theatrically; Holter will create the live staging along with Yelena Zhelezov, who focuses on video and performing sculptures, and Zoe Aja Moore, who focuses on theater and live performance (June 22 & 23).

Group-in-Residence wild Up – called by the New York Times “a raucous, grungy, irresistibly exuberant … fun-loving, exceptionally virtuosic family” – also presents its own program this spring, titled future folk. Exploring the music of Ancient India, Modern California and post-war New York, the concert features music composed and arranged by Julius Eastman, Meredith Monk, Velvet Underground, Frederic Rzewski, Scriabin, and others, along with wild Up members Chris Rountree, Chris Kallmyer, Archie Carey, and James Tenney. Embracing a theme of innovation while acknowledging that “we are all standing on the shoulders of the Ancestors,” the celebrated music collective invites the audience into a ritualistic meditation on the future of American Utopianism (June 24).

On Fillmore (a duo consisting of tireless experimenter, Wilco drummer and NS Artist-in-Residence Glenn Kotche and his longtime musical partner, eclectic bassist Darin Gray) celebrates the release of the new Northern Spy Records album, Happiness of Living, at NS on April 8. The fruit of an ecstatic multi-day session in Rio de Janeiro, Happiness of Living moves effortlessly between deep cosmic pockets, celestial vocals and occasional pop tunes to create a glowing mood unlike anything the duo has previously released. Following the On Fillmore show is a screening of Every Other Summer, a documentary directed by Christoph Green and Brendan Canty about the Solid Sound Festival, Wilco’s three-day music and arts gathering that takes place once every two years at MASS MoCA. The film features performances by Wilco, Neko Case, Yo La Tengo, The Dream Syndicate, Lucius, Foxygen, Sam Amidon, Sean Rowe, and The Relatives, as well as appearances from Reggie Watts, John Hodgman, Jen Kirkman and others.

Kotche is also part of the team assembled by NS Artist-in-Residence Reggie “Regg Roc” Gray this spring. Regg Roc is the creator of FLEXN Dance, a Brooklyn-bred street style of dance that has been described as “rhythmic contortionism,” and is also the founder of the Dream Ring Dance Company. He will be composing, creating, and producing a live professional recording with Kotche on percussion, along with cellist Jeffrey Zeigler, percussionist Andy Akiho, and other special guests to combine FlexN Dance with original music for the first time. The results will be presented in a live performance on April 9. NS Artist-in-Residence Helga Davis, who also collaborated with Regg Roc for her piece Requiem for a Tuesday in January’s FERUS Festival at NS, presents three genre-straddling shows in the spring titled “My Favorite Things,” culminating in a fantastical dance party with DJ Richard Baretto (April 5, 6 & 9).

NS Artist-in-Residence Latasha Alcindor (L.A.) gives a performance in May based on her album Teen Nite @ Empire. Reflecting her Old Brooklyn soul, the album evokes nostalgia at both hip-hop’s past and her own, and is dedicated to the Empire Skating Rink in Brooklyn that fell victim to gentrification (May 27). A month later Alcindor is back with “New York, New York,” a night dedicated to traditional New York hip-hop sounds with a long lineup of guest artists (June 22).

The Nouveau Classical Project, founded by NS Artist-in-Residence Sugar Vendil, is an ensemble hailed for “bringing a refreshing edge to the widely conservative genre” (VICE). Celebrating the marriage of tradition and technology, the group will present a concert titled “Currents,” for which NCP is commissioning and premiering four new works by composers who thrive in both the classical and pop worlds: Olga Bell (formerly of Dirty Projectors and Chairlift), Gabrielle Herbst (aka GABI), David Bird, and Isaac Schankler (May 25).

Curators

A core component of National Sawdust’s mission is the curation model, whereby master musicians from across genres are invited to join the NS family of programmers. Returning curators include Grammy-nominated vocalist and composer Theo Bleckmann, who curates an evening with the American Contemporary Music Ensemble (ACME) performing music of celebrated composer and vocalist Lisa Bielawa (April 6), and gives his own performance with jazz trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire and pianist Shai Maestro (May 21). Versatile cellist and NS staple Jeffrey Zeigler also returns as a curator this spring to present a concert of music by David Lang, in which the cellist joins Grammy Award-winning flutist Molly Barth for music of from their upcoming album Thorn! on Cantaloupe Music (May 13). And veteran NS curator and Mexican jazz singer Magos Herrera curates an evening with Trio Afora, a Brazilian band that will be releasing a new album with saxophonist John Ellis. Herrera herself also performs (May 4).

Curators who are new to NS this season include Timo Andres, the composer-pianist named as a 2016 Pulitzer Prize finalist, who performs his 60-minute two-piano work Shy and Mighty along with pianist Dave Kaplan (June 17). Composer, producer, and interdisciplinary performer Sxip Shirey presents a pair of performances, the first in collaboration with Michaela Davies, a cross-disciplinary Australian artist currently working with electronically stimulated involuntary muscle movement, with whom he is creating a new work (May 12). Later in the spring, “Sxip’s House of Charm” showcases four female composers whose music has special resonance for the current moment in history: Alicia Moran, Mazz Swift, Martha Redbone, and Terry Dame (June 3). A performance coinciding with the release of avant roots artist Mikel Rouse’s video album Hemispheres will be presented and joined by blues guitarist Jeff McErlain (April 29).

Series

Experimental music venue The Stone, a Manhattan institution founded in 2005 by composer John Zorn, who still serves as Artistic Director, collaborates with National Sawdust on a series of three concerts this spring. John Zorn’s “The Stone” Commissioning Series and NS first present versatile tabla artist Suphala, who was raised in the U.S. by Indian parents and learned Western classical music before transferring her passion to one of the world’s most complex percussion instruments (April 26). Featured in the second show is New York experimental music icon Ikue Mori, the former drummer for the no-wave band DNA, who performs a piece commissioned for the evening titled Seeds among others. Inspired by the botanical encyclopedia, it is written for electronics and percussion and performed by Mori and percussionist Jim Black (May 31). Wrapping up the series on June 28, Zorn and NS present jazz electric guitar prodigy Julian Lage, whose collaborators have included Aoife O’Donovan and Gabriel Kahane, playing new works of his own composition.

National Sawdust+, which brings artists and thinkers into the intimate Williamsburg space, continues to explore new ground with three spring programs that reflect the breadth of the thought-provoking series, created by NS+ Curator Elena Park. On May 19, MacArthur Award-winning radio host Jad Abumrad takes a break from his More Perfect and RadioLab shows for a stimulating evening of music and conversation. The sometime composer returns to host his third NS+ program, curating a concert showcasing musicians whose work he loves – and quite possibly sharing some recent music he has composed. On June 2, the singular American artist Carrie Mae Weems, “a superb image maker and a moral force” (New York Times) whose art has investigated topics from cultural identity to politics to the consequences of power, debuts a new program created for NS+. “Gentle on my Mind” uses narratives, photographs and video, sharing the essential role that music has played in shaping both Weems’ life and work. On June 30, NS+ presents Elements of Time + Taste, a creative experience of music, cocktails, and food. Music will be curated by composer/musician Oded Lev-Ari and NS+’s Park, with food by James Beard Award-winning chef Patrick Connolly of Rider (the restaurant housed in the NS building) and cocktails by leading mixologist Allen Katz of New York Distilling Company. Past NS+ Concerts and Talks have featured Marina Abramovic, Laurie Anderson, Chris Jackson, Michael Mayer, Elizabeth Peyton, Maria Popova, Patti Smith, Caroline Shaw, Julie Taymor, and Jacqueline Woodson.

The quarterly concert series Late Night at National Sawdust: a Live Radio Broadcast, which brings its second installment to NS on April 21, is a collaborative effort between Open G Records and Access Contemporary Music Series. With Chris Grymes and other Open G Artists, the series returns audiences to the glory days of live radio broadcasts, airing live on Relevant Tones, the world’s only weekly syndicated contemporary music radio program.

The New York Philharmonic’s CONTACT! Series, a co-presentation of the New York Philharmonic and NS, returns to the venue this spring for another of what the New York Times has called “must-hear adventures.” The concert includes two world premieres; music by Pulitzer Prize winners Elliott Carter, David Lang, and Jacob Druckman; and much more (May 22).

The New York Festival of Song concert this spring features powerhouse husband-and-wife duo Kyle Jarrow and Lauren Worsham along with special guests (May 10). Obie award-winning writer and musician Kyle Jarrow and Tony-nominated and Drama Desk Award-winning actress and singer Lauren Worsham lead the rock band Sky-Pony, whose rock fairy tale The Wildness was hailed by the New York Times as “defiantly exultant” and nominated for a Lortel Award for Outstanding Musical.

The Attacca Quartet, praised by the Washington Post as “four strikingly individual players with the ability to speak eloquently in one voice,” performs another installment in their “Recently Added” series this spring (April 2). Dedicated to exploring significant contributions to the string quartet repertoire by contemporary composers, the series celebrates John Adams’s 70th birthday with a marathon concert at National Sawdust. The quartet performs the two works by Adams they recorded on their first commercial album Fellow Traveler (John’s Book of Alleged Dances and the First String Quartet) as well as his recently composed Second String Quartet. More chamber music is on tap when the Ritz Chamber Players return to National Sawdust for the Ritz Chamber Music Series, fostering the appreciation of chamber music through performances and educational outreach (May 14). Featuring preeminent African-American musicians and composers, the series emphasizes arts inclusion and building audiences that reflect our diverse society.

The “Bridging the Gap” series presents two concerts at National Sawdust in the coming months, led by composer and former president of the Manhattan School of Music Robert Sirota. Bridging the Gap showcases chamber, choral, and solo works with concerts that explore student/teacher and mentor/mentee relationships between generations of composers. Each concert is preceded by a discussion with the participants, led by a distinguished moderator. The first concert this spring is on April 30, and features composers from the Yale School of Music: William Gardiner, Paul Kerekes, David Lang, Hannah Lash, Daniel Schlosberg and Christopher Theofanidis. The final concert on June 4 will feature works by Sirota, Jonathan Bailey Holland, and Angel Lam.

Institutional Initiatives

As the culmination of what has been a season-long “Philip Glass @ 80” celebration, NS honors advisory board member Philip Glass with a production of his rarely performed Madrigal Opera, directed by NS Artist-in-Residence R. B. Schlather (April 28 & 29). Written in 1980 and commissioned by the Holland Festival, this chamber opera is written for six voices, violin, and viola, and conceived as an artful paradox: a music theater work with no specific theatrical or narrative content. Schlather’s performers are Brooklyn Rider violinist Johnny Gandelsman, director Vince Peterson and his vocal group Choral Chameleon.

Sparked by the passionate dialogue and debate at NS’s impromptu gathering two nights after last year’s election, this spring the venue dedicates a monthly series of Town Halls to a discussion focusing on crucial questions of our time: How did we get here? What can we do to create change and make an impact? The Town Hall series will be streamed on Facebook Live, and all proceeds will go to an activist group co-sponsoring the event.

The second annual NS Percussion Festival takes over the venue on April 1, curated by percussion giants Ian Rosenbaum and Andy Akiho. Rosenbaum, whose first solo album, Memory Palace, was released on NS’s in-house label VIA Records this past January, joined the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center’s CMS Two in 2012 as only the second percussionist ever to have been selected for the program; and Akiho, a steel pan specialist, composer, and winner of the 2014-15 Luciano Berio Rome Prize, has had his compositions played at Bang on a Can and American Composers Forum, among many others. The Festival, a day-long showcase of contemporary music’s leaders and innovators from all over the world, draws together many different groups and genres within the percussion community, giving artists a platform to share their latest work and hear works of other trailblazers in the field. An afternoon marathon concert features sets by Payton MacDonald, Sandbox Percussion, Max ZT and Andrew Nemr, Ayano Kataoka, Kenneth Salters and Gilad Hekselman, and Evan Chapman. The evening concert will feature Joe Locke performing a solo set on vibraphone and drummer Will Calhoun (of the band Living Colour) performing a new project encompassing/inspired by African drumming. This year’s Percussion Festival is generously supported by Evans, Promark and The D’Addario Foundation.

In collaboration with Carnegie Hall’s Neighborhood Concerts, NS presents The Canales Project’s “Between Two Worlds” on April 22. Founded by mezzo-soprano Carla Dirlikov Canales, The Canales Project uses a powerful musical message to give voice to issues of identity and culture. Canales hosts this event that features music and discussion with three young activist-artists: Llewellyn Sanchez-Werner, a pianist and composer committed to social action through music; Mariela Shaker, a Syrian violinist born in Aleppo who uses music to raise awareness about the plight of her countrymen; and Andia Winslow, a Yale alumna and athlete who encourages young people and adults to maintain healthy and active lifestyles.

El Puente Arts returns for a second year of partnership with NS in the Very Young Composers Program on April 8. Last year, five students were immersed in the world of music composition under the leadership of composers Angélica Negrón and Anna Clyne, culminating with a performance on the National Sawdust stage. Two of the students joining this year’s VYC group recently performed their original composition Coco, Mango, Cherry for an audience of nearly 4,000 other students at Lincoln Center, accompanied by the New York Philharmonic.

Other Performances

Three very different violinists are also performing at NS this spring. Miranda Cuckson – “one of the most sensitive and electric interpreters of new music” (Downbeat) – celebrates the release of her fourth Urlicht Audiovisual album, Invisible Colors, with a concert on April 5. The album features five groundbreaking solo works by Brian Ferneyhough, Stefan Wolpe, and Elliott Carter, and the concert will also include the premiere of Wang Lu’s piece for violin and video titled Unbreathable Colors, addressing the issue of air pollution. Composer and violinist Christopher Tignor plays NS on May 5, presented by journalist Justin Joffe, who recently wrote an article about him for the Observer website. Tignor, a former Google software engineer, creates emotionally charged scores with software of his own making that adds electronic harmonies, octaves and other accompaniment to live performances, all in response to the performer’s movements. He presents music from his latest album, Along a Vanishing Plane, as well as several new pieces. The Next Festival of Emerging Artists, which brings together talented string players and composers from around the country in an innovative and highly collaborative environment, presents a concert on June 4. Featured are Peter Askim, a composer, conductor and bassist and Founder and Artistic Director of the Festival, and celebrated violinist Jenny Koh, a prodigy who made her debut with the Chicago Symphony at 11 and recently became the first woman and the first Asian to perform the solo violin role of Einstein in Philip Glass and Robert Wilson’s 2012 revival of Einstein on the Beach.

Two ensembles from the Nordic countries make the trek to Brooklyn in the coming months. Nordic Affect performs a selection of works on April 19 reflecting the intimate and unique music that has emerged from the Icelandic scene in recent years. Coinciding with the release of the group’s ecology-themed album, Raindamage, released in February 2017 on Sono Luminus, the performance features varying combinations of violin, viola, cello, harpsichord, and electronics. Included will be works from the album by Valgeir Sigurðsson and Úlfur Hansson, as well as music by Anna Thorvaldsdottir, Hildur Guðnadóttir, and María Huld Markan Sigfúsdottir. Oslo’s Cikada, a ten-member ensemble founded in 1989 and consisting of flute, clarinet, piano, percussion, string quintet, and conductor Christian Eggen, performs a program titled “The heart’s ear” on June 8 as part of Oslo’s Ultima Festival of Contemporary Music. Cikada presents music by three composers the group has worked closely with over the years, including three pieces commissioned by the ensemble itself.

The Spektral QuartetClara Lyon and Maeve Feinberg on violins, Doyle Armbrust on viola, and Russell Rolen on cello – presents Playing Out, a definition-defying showcase at the intersection of experimental jazz, improvisation, and electroacoustic music (April 21). The program features the New York premiere of a new quartet by George Lewis commissioned by the Fromm Foundation, as well as music by Katherine Young and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s Mead Composer-in-Residence Samuel Adams. For its NS debut, the Spektral Quartet is joined by flutist and 2012 MacArthur Fellow Claire Chase for Anthony Cheung’s jazz-inflected “Real Book of Fake Tunes” (also commissioned by Fromm).

Sō Percussion presents music from its album amid the noise – described by All About Jazz as a “hypnotic blend” of “the minimalist bent of Steve Reich with the sparer ambient landscapes of Brian Eno” – on May 26. And Ian Rosenbaum, co-curator of the Percussion Festival, presents his lauded percussion ensemble, Sandbox Percussion, with mezzo-soprano Elspeth Davis on June 7.

Rounding out the spring roster at NS are three more diverse performances. On May 4 the standard-setting traditional musical partnership of Alasdair Fraser (“the Michael Jordan of Scottish fiddling”) and brilliant Californian cellist Natalie Haas performs a program made up of equal parts intimate chamber music and ecstatic dance energy. On June 7, Grammy-nominated jazz pianist and composer Fabian Almazan – voted #1 Rising Piano Star in the 2014 Downbeat Critics’ Poll – presents Alcanza (“Reach”), a nine-movement suite of music that deals with “those brief moments in our lives in which within a blink of an eye, everything changes – or at least gives us a remarkable new perception of our condition.” And author and composer Michael Hearst, along with his five-piece band, presents his composition Songs For Extraordinary People on May 27. Subjects include Larry Walters, who used 45 helium balloons to carry himself into the sky; and Marie Curie, who discovered radium, and whose notebooks to this day are still too radioactive to handle.

On April 22 NS presents “Jazz For Kids: Timbalooloo.” Created by renowned jazz musician and composer Oran Etkin, and using music and culture from many traditions, from Mozart to Tito Puente, the Timbalooloo method brings instruments to life and let’s them “talk” with their distinctive individual voices. When it’s the children’s turn to play, they are not simply executing the correct notes, but making their instrument magically come to life, bringing character, humor and emotion to the music.

Membership

As critics have been quick to appreciate, National Sawdust provides an intimate and acoustically exemplary environment for artists and audiences to connect. The world-class performance and recording venue remains, as the New York Times pointed out, “a triumphantly successful new performance space in Williamsburg that stands for a hip, sophisticated brand of new music.

The wide range of National Sawdust memberships invites all levels of interest and commitment to participate. The four new categories of membership include Discovery, for the curious newcomer; Prodigy, for access to selected monthly shows; Virtuoso, which provides a wider range of programming choices; and the Maestro level, for dedicated friends of NS.
