    Invisible Anatomy is an NYC-based composer/performer ensemble that explores the human body as the most fundamental aspect of music creation and performance. Incorporating elements from classical, jazz, experimental rock, performance art and theater, Invisible Anatomy creates performances that combine an omnivorous stylistic palate, virtuosic physicality, and dramatic visual presentation.

    Invisible Anatomy will celebrate the release of its debut album, Dissections, released March 30 through New Amsterdam Records. Dissections explores intimacy and the potentially damaging experience of being vulnerable with others, the deconstruction and reconstruction inherent in peeling away human surfaces, and the beautiful and unexpected results that can happen when that risk is taken.

    DISSECTIONS

    Pre-order available here: https://invisibleanatomy.bandcamp.com/album/dissections-2

    Invisible Anatomy is a composer-performer ensemble that explores the human body as the most fundamental aspect of music creation and performance. Incorporating elements from classical, jazz, experimental rock, performance art and theater, Invisible Anatomy (IA) creates performances that combine an omnivorous stylistic palate, virtuosic physicality, and dramatic visual presentation. IA’s inaugural show BODY PARTS dismembered, manipulated, and reanimated bodies in performance – creating a chattering chorus of woodblock teeth and screaming eyes on TV screens. After the group’s 2015 debut concerts in New York City, they were invited to China for three shows, including a featured solo concert at the Beijing Modern Music Festival. IA’s second season opened with an intimate house concert of BODY PARTS hosted by David Lang, followed by the world premiere of Dissections at Brooklyn’s National Sawdust, which was the subject of a full-length feature in the Village Voice. IA performed DISSECTIONS at Pomona College and The Blue Whale in Los Angeles in February 2016, and appeared on Heartbeat Opera’s Collaboret Series; at Roulette Intermedium in Brooklyn; at the Yale School of Music in New Haven; and at Ars Nova’s ANT Fest in Manhattan. The group was the runner-up in the 2016 SAVVY Chamber Competition at the University of South Carolina School of Music, and recorded their debut studio album in June.

    On Halloween 2016, IA produced FUNHOUSE, an immersive presentation of art installations and performances in a prewar Victorian Harlem brownstone. Upcoming engagements include a gala performance hosted by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Aaron Jay Kernis, an evening-length show at Roulette in Brooklyn, as well as appearing on the Detroit Institute of Art’s Friday Night Live series in March 2017.

    IA’s members have been awarded honors from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, ASCAP, American Composers’ Forum, and the China National Arts Fund. IA is fiscally sponsored by Bang on a Can, and is the recipient of a 2017 Foundation for Contemporary Arts Grant.

    Dissections explores intimacy and the potentially damaging experience of being vulnerable with others, but also the beautiful and unexpected results that can happen when that risk is taken. The close-knit group has experienced this first-hand, collectively and individually working through health issues, conflict, distance and more, and baring themselves to each other during the process. The pieces on Dissections reflect the deconstruction and reconstruction inherent in peeling away human surfaces.

    Each piece on Dissections fixates on one element of a musical phrase or text, repeating — or dissecting — it until it becomes unrecognizable. Vocalist Fay Wang’s piece “Facial Polygraph XVIA” is a poetic study of facial expressions, dissecting tics, “tells,” and subtle changes of emotions. Guitarist Brendon Randall- Myers’s songs “Permission” and “Othering” focus explicitly on the discomfort and dangers of opening up to someone — navigating difference and similarity, and the disconnect between who we imagine people to be and who they actually are. Musically, the pieces attempt to capture a feeling of beautiful discomfort in being pulled apart, splitting rock-derived phrases across multiple instruments playing at different tempos.

    Cellist Ian Gottlieb’s two-movement piece, “Threading Light”, symbolizes the piano as flesh and the cello, guitar and vibraphone as the knife, teasing strands of notes out of decadent chords. Pianist Paul Kerekes’s piece “Pressing Issues” explores the constant shuffling of small musical gestures into a kaleidoscopic listening experience.

    Pianist Dan Schlosberg’s piece “A Demonstration” is inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s relentless examinations of human cadavers in search of the human soul, exploring every facet of man he could think of along the way. Fittingly, the pieces features players coaxing sounds from the strings of a grand piano through inflictions from screwdrivers and knives, in a sense exploring a familiar body in new ways.
