TO DO: DARMSTADT (aaaaand a little shameless self promotion)

Among the many exciting new music events that have sprung up in NYC over the past few years, DARMSTADT, a concert series curated by Nick Hallett and Zack Layton, is one of the coolest. Avant garde classics are mixed on the turn tables, as well as performed live by some of the best contemporary music performers around.

Well, tonight, DARMSTADT is launching its first ever “festival” (their quotes) at Issue Project Room in Brooklyn, presenting six concerts over five days. Definitely check out at least one of these.

Tomorrow night (Thursday, 8pm), yours truly will be interpreting a fluxus score by Emmett Williams. So come check it out, and, as always, feel free to criticize the critic.

If you haven’t yet been introduced to the world of Fluxus, now’s a good time to start. The evening will also include works by Nam June Paik, Yoko Ono, Joseph Byrd and Tony Conrad.
