An intimate gathering in Brooklyn’s beautiful historic Old Stone House will feature quiet, intense works by Klaus Lang, Marc Sabat, Lucie Vitkova, Pauline Oliveros, and Giacinto Scelsi that explore microtonality and sonic phenomena. A Ghost Ensemble trio (Sky Macklay, Ben Richter, and Joshua Morris) will be joined by accordionist Lucie Vitkova and cellist Lester St. Louis. The evening will begin with a conversation hosted by Musical Ecologies curator Dan Joseph, and a reception will follow.
The Old Stone House is located in Washington Park, 3rd Street & 5th Avenue, Park Slope, Brooklyn.
