    John Hollenbeck Large Ensemble’s All Can Work was released back in January, but it’s still hard to pin down. Conducted by JC Sanford, the music isn’t exactly jazz, and it’s not quite contemporary classical; abstract elements of world music are nearly impossible to trace back to a single source. Genre labels do no good here.

    The title track finds Eastman School of Music alumnus, percussionist, and composer Hollenbeck building a monolithic sound sculpture from the ground up, layer by layer. Horns intone solemnly, before vocalist Theo Bleckmann and the woodwinds chime in with an airier, if still ambiguous mood. The lyrics — penned by the band’s late trumpeter Laurie Frink — take on an optimistic, carefree tone, as the music escalates toward an ingeniously bleary climax and the brass instruments seem to close in on one another.

    Middle Eastern-style melodies and Latin American rhythms coexist on the effervescent Elf, while Heyoke features Bleckmann singing a kind of organized scat through the orchestral din of Hollenbeck’s free-flowing, 21-member band. The nonverbal vocalizations continue with this kiss, in which Bleckmann frequently disappears into unison with the instrumental melodies.

    Hollenbeck’s compositions are inherently restless and endlessly busy, bordering on frantic surrealism at times. It’s as if the bandleader is painting a vertigo-inducing network of bustling city streets that somehow lead both everywhere and nowhere. And that’s a good thing. The sound space is often congested, but the effect is thrilling rather than claustrophobic. All Can Work is an album bubbling with creative energy and deserving of repeat listens.

    In all of our presenting and recording activities, NewAm holds firmly to its mission to support artists whose work lies outside of traditional music industry infrastructure – whether that be classical, pop/rock/indie, jazz, world, or experimental. In pursuit of this calling, NewAm often collaborates with like-minded organizations. Our past and ongoing partnerships with the River to River Festival, Ecstatic Music Festival, Art of Elan, the Indianapolis Symphony (multi-year residency), MoMA PS 1, Liquid Music, Galapagos Artspace and National Sawdust have yielded high-profile opportunities for our artists to present their work. On the records side, we often partner with other labels in order to offer our artists the best possible representation for their projects. Partner labels have included Bedroom Community (Iceland), Nonclassical (UK), One Little Indian (UK), Sono Luminus (USA), Cantaloupe (USA) and NNA Tapes (USA).

    From New Amsterdam Records: “Tigue’s Strange Paradise” 

    New Amsterdam Records is at the heart of the New Music environment

    Strange Paradise
    album art by Devra Freelander and Gregory Wikstrom

    Strange Paradise is the sophomore album from Brooklyn-based composer-performer percussion trio Tigue, co-released by New Amsterdam Records (CD + digital) and NNA Tapes (vinyl) and following the group’s widely-celebrated debut album, Peaks (2015).

    The band will also celebrate the album’s release on April 27 with a performance at Brooklyn’s Elsewhere, a new multi-room venue from the owners of the now-defunct venue Glasslands. The performance is presented by LPR Presents and Operator Music Band will open.

    Tickets are on sale now here.

    Tigue is a group of three percussionists with a fluid musical identity. Praised for their energetic and focused performances, the members of Tigue (Matt Evans, Amy Garapic and Carson Moody) have continued to to develop their own language of instrumental minimalism while simultaneously performing in collaborative endeavors over the past five years. Strange Paradise sees them creating as a unit, pushing each other to transcend the limits and expectations of their percussion instrumentation through the construction of long-form, radiant hypnotic soundscapes described by the group as “rendered in ecstatic complexity.”

    The music on Strange Paradise flows directly from the hands and minds of the members, the result of a deep human connection that can only come from playing music together for nearly a decade. The group wrote the music with a sense of immediacy — everyone together in a room, with vibraphones, drums, synthesizers, gongs and garbage — with every sound maintaining an intimate connection to its creator. The members’ distinct musical voices interlock seamlessly, and the pieces radiate with warmth.

    As a result, Strange Paradise is a luminous, abstract, non-narrative world that funnels inspiration from patterns, objects, and relationships. Built on an intricate patchwork of tones where instrumental lines and textures shift in and out of alignment to produce a vibrating landscape, Strange Paradise is designed for a mode of “extended listening” — asking listeners to explore slow gradations of change between rhythm and texture. The album creates a sound environment that envelopes the listener but continually defies expectation — shapeshifting at each point it seems understood. Though the music floats from the serene to the uncanny, Strange Paradise is perhaps most notable for providing a distinct sensation of interconnectedness.

    Strange Paradise was produced by Tigue & Seth Manchester, and recorded at Machines with Magnets in Pawtucket RI and Brooklyn NY. The album was engineered and mixed by Seth Manchester, and mastered by Heba Kadry at Timeless Mastering. Special guests on “Triangle” include: Benedict Kupstas (guitar); Seth Manchester (guitar); Tristan Kasten-Krause (bass); Trevor Wilson (Wurlitzer); and Eliot Krimsky (OP1).

    From New Amsterdam Records: Jordan Munson – “Until My Last” 

    New Amsterdam Records is at the heart of the New Music environment

    Jordan Munson – Until My Last

    Until My Last is the new album from Indianapolis-based composer, performer, and multimedia artist Jordan Munson. The album will be released on May 11 and will be available exclusively through New Amsterdam’s Bandcamp subscription. Subscribe today to be sure you receive the album.

    Until My Last collects three works written over the course of the past three years. In creating the music on the album, Munson drew on his backgrounds in sound design, improvisation, and pop music. With the focused hand of an engineer, Munson fuses together textural electronics with jarring moments of melodic clarity, creating an immersive and starkly emotional listening experience.

    Opening work Anew—co-written with composer/vocalist Hanna Benn (Son Lux, BOOTS)—pairs triumphant vocal fanfare with darkly visceral industrial rhythms, while title track Until My Last presents a furiously urgent piano performance (played by Munson himself) in counterpoint with a bed of processed music box tones. Where Light Escapes You, the shortest of the three works, acts as something of a palette cleanser in the middle of the album, filtering the delicate percussion work of Alex Wier through Munson’s kaleidoscopic electronics.

    About the album, Munson writes, “This collection of works selects from material over a three year span, so there is an inherent evolution of style and technique. I hear strong similarities in both form and intent although each maintains a very different character. Commonalities in form have mainly to do with process. My background in free improvisation often sets the framework for a piece. At least initially. The intention with these works was to further graft my history playing popular and experimental music to formal musical training in a way that is more honest and personal.”

    Munson continues, “A visual analogy for this album that makes sense to me is rather topographical. It’s as if you are starting at the bottom entrance of a heavily wooded mountain trail. Here, the landscape is intricate but formless as you focus on what is right in front of you. This perception only strengthens as the environment becomes denser, until you reach a clearing at the end. At that point there is a feeling of arrival. You can sense the clarity and connection of everything that surrounds you.”

    All works on Until My Last were written by Jordan Munson with the exception of Anew which was co-written with Hanna Benn. The album was recorded, mixed, and mastered by engineer Doug Bielmeier in Indianapolis, IN. Featured performers include vocalists Hanna Benn and Abby Gardner (Anew), violinist Robin Cox (Anew), and percussionist Alex Wier (Where Light Escapes You). Text in Anew derives from the poem Heaven-Haven: A Nun Takes the Veil (1918) by Gerard Manley Hopkins.

    There are few sounds better suited to the strange familiarity of dreams than Tigue’s vibrant experimental percussion. Taken from the Brooklyn trio’s forthcoming Strange Paradise, Triangle is a mesmerizing piece that feels at once recognizable and a little bit alien—all the usual pieces are there, but ripples at the margins hint at something curious just behind the curtain. Tigue’s enthralling command of rhythm and texture propel the song forward with just enough off-kilter structure to keep you checking your peripherals.

    Filmed in an old Brooklyn gymnasium by director Steven Reker, the accompanying video sees the band awash in fog and undulating distortion, attending to their instruments as if engaged in a serene ritual. It’s fun to see musicians look so relaxed while playing something so complex, and the whole thing is shot through with Tigue’s signature goofy quirks: they gaze longingly at the titular triangle, apparently an object of worship, and squish their faces in mock-religious fervor.

    Triangle is simultaneously lighthearted and cerebral, casual and austere. It finds beauty in rhythm and repetition, and asks the listener to engage with sounds just at the edge of their comfort zone. That it can manage all that without taking itself too seriously is downright brilliant.

    A New Sounds Live co-presentation hosted by John Schaefer & streamed live on NewSounds.org

    Some of the greatest voices in contemporary music come together! Julianna Barwick’s ethereal, powerfully emotive voice paired with celebrated performers of early music ascends into a thrilling and truly ecstatic sonic world. Featuring premieres of new works by Barwick, Caleb Burhans, “New York’s mohawked Mozart” (Time Out New York), and Caroline Shaw, the youngest ever winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Music. The three-member super-group ModernMedieval features former Anonymous 4 founder Jacqueline Horner-Kwiatek and Roomful of Teeth’s Martha Cluver and Eliza Bagg.

    Curator’s Note from Judd Greenstein
    Julianna Barwick has been one of my favorite composer-performers for years, layering her own voice on top of itself to stunning effect. She was an obvious choice to commission for a collaboration with ModernMedieval, who will help her bring her new work into a new dimension, while also presenting their own dialogue between the contemporary and the medieval. I’m also thrilled to be able to commission Caroline and Caleb, two of the best composers writing for the voice today, to contribute new repertoire for this promising ensemble.

    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.

    Jeremy Flower, John Hollenbeck, Ethan Iverson, Carla Kihlstedt, Christopher Tordini & Patrick Zimmerli

    The evening begins with a celebration of the release of composer-saxophonist Patrick Zimmerli’s Clockworks, a musical meditation on time, in all its forms, performed by Zimmerli with former Bad Plus pianist Ethan Iverson, bassist Chris Tordini and composer-jazz drummer John Hollenbeck. In the evening’s second half, pop/art song composer-violinist-vocalist Carla Kihlstedt and composer Jeremy Flower join Zimmerli, Tordini and Hollenbeck for the world premiere of Songs of Mourning, an exploration of sorrow ranging from the political to the personal, and other works from their cumulative pasts.

    Please note that this performance begins at 8:30 pm rather than 7:30 pm.

    A collaboration between New Amsterdam Records and Kaufman Music Center, the acclaimed Ecstatic Music Festival® returns in 2018, bringing together composers and performers from different musical genres for nine one-night-only performances featuring world premieres, new arrangements and the exclusive opportunity to hear artists discuss their work.

    Starting Jan. 27 and running through April 26, 2018, the festival, hailed as “the alt-classical world’s main showcase” (The New York Times), features collaborations from more than 75 artists, including Margaret Leng Tan, Carla Kihlstedt, Patrick Zimmerli, Ethan Iverson, and many more.

    New Sounds is the festival’s digital venue.
