ICELab 2011 LPR Residency with Nathan Davis
Le Poisson Rouge (158 Bleecker St., Manhattan)
6:30 doors, 7:30 start
Free, RSVP required: ice@lprnyc.com

Nathan Davis has crafted a cycle of beautiful new works for a small combination of instruments that transform into an architecture of color, texture, rhythm and breath. Using microphones as microscopes, he draws out the fine details of sound that exist all around us, making music that magnifies the essential characteristics of instruments and the fragile athleticism of playing them.

ICElab is the International Contemporary Ensemble’s new model for commissioning, developing, and performing new music, designed to nurture the essential composer-performer collaboration through which groundbreaking musical ideas emerge.

This is a first-come, first-served partially seated event. Seating is limited and not guaranteed; please arrive early.
