    Composer Brooks Frederickson’s debut album Small Works is a snapshot of the community of collaborators Brooks lived and worked with in Brooklyn. Small Works comes from not only the small forces needed for each piece, but also from the small amount of material that acts as the germ for each piece.

    Performers includes some of the leading contemporary music interpreters of today: Ashley Bathgate (Bang on a Can All Stars), Eliza Bagg (Pavo Pavo), all three members of Bearthoven (Matt Evans, Karl Larson, Pat Swoboda), Exceptet, Longleash, and Brendon Randall-Myers (Invisible Anatomy / Marateck).

    Composer Brooks Frederickson writes patient music that is grounded in long lines of slowly evolving textures with understated rhythmic drive. As an active participant in Brooklyn’s vibrant contemporary music scene, he has worked with leading new music ensembles Sō Percussion, JACK Quartet, Bearthoven, Ensemble mise-en and with performers such as Vicky Chow, Nathan Schram, and Grace Fong. His music has been present as part of the Bang On A Can Marathon (2014), and the Contagious Sounds and Columbus // New York Exchange series. Interested in the interaction of movement and sound, he has also collaborated with the Spark Movement Collective and choreographer Annette Herwander. This season includes the premiere of Song Cycle performed by Eliza Bagg, Ashley Bathgate, Karl Larson, and Brendon Randall-Myers

    Upcoming recording projects include a his “steroidally hard-driving, rock-influenced” (NY Times) piece Undertoad on Cantaloupe Records. Brooks’ music can also be heard on Consortium5’s recording “Tangled Pipes” out on the Nonclassical record label.

    As an advocate for education and community, Brooks is on the faculty at the Special Music School where he teaches both theory and composition. In addition, he facilitates the annual Composer-Performer Speed Dating session at the New Music Gathering.

    Brooks has had the opportunity to work with many excellent teachers and composers including: Michael Gordon, Julia Wolfe, Justin Dello Joio, Michael Schelle, Frank Felice, James Aikman, and Alison Kay. Brooks holds degrees in composition from from Butler University (BM), and NYU Steinhardt (MM).

    From New Amsterdam Records: “NOW AVAILABLE: ‘The Vanity of trees’ and ‘le creature nel giardino di Lady Walton'” 

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

    SUPPORT NEWAM

    From New Amsterdam Records

    Padma Newsome from New Amsterdam Records

    New Amsterdam is excited to announce the release of
    The Vanity of trees and le creature nel giardino di Lady Walton, the latest releases from Padma Newsome — acclaimed Australia-based composer, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, conductor, arranger, and frequent collaborator of bands such as The National and Clogs. Out today, The Vanity of trees is available in digital and CD formats, and le creature nel giardino di Lady Walton is available exclusively through New Amsterdam’s Windmill Series.

    2
    The Vanity of trees

    The Vanity of trees is a sonic essay inspired by the landscape of Padma Newsome’s home of the past 14 years, Mallacoota, Australia. The small town of about 1000 people sits along an inlet of the Tasman Sea in the far eastern corner of Victoria, along the edge of wild sea and forest. “Beauty and a stifling harshness exudes: a seeming wonderland of internal rarefied struggle,” Newsome says of the landscape, where he lives a lifestyle of reflection and seclusion.

    Newsome constructs a warm sonic world that explores the woods that envelope his life in the country, including the character-filled trees that have become his closest neighbors and the life they support — Koalas, Lyrebirds, King Parrots, Wombats, Possums, Goannas, and sporadic humans and households. In addition, the record looks at the isolationism and toughness in remote country, the desolation that emerges and destroys families and lives.

    1
    le creature nel giardino di Lady Walton

    le creature nel giardino di Lady Walton is the inspiration behind Clogs’ release, The Creatures in the Garden of Lady Walton (Brassland, 2010). Scored for six bass clarinets, the music features performances by his sister Sue Newsome, and is available through New Amsterdam’s digital-only, subscription-based Windmill Series, with full release forthcoming.

    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).

    Come celebrate the release of Brooklyn Youth Chorus’s new album Silent Voices

    Silent Voices includes works by Caroline Shaw, Nico Muhly, Shara Nova, Toshi Reagon, Jeff Beal (“House of Cards”), Mary Kouyoumdjian, Ellis Ludwig-Leone, Kamala Sankaram, and Paul Miller/DJ Spooky. The libretto includes passages from authors and thinkers including Michelle Alexander’s The New Jim Crow; George Savile, Marquis of Halifax’s 17th century chapbook to his daughter, The Lady’s New-Year’s Gift; and Patricia Bell-Scott’s The Firebrand and the First Lady, drawing from letters between civil rights activist Pauli Murray and First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt.

    The Silent Voices series launched in the Chorus’ 25th anniversary season with the world premiere at BAM’s Howard Gilman Opera House in May 2017. Silent Voices harnesses the power of young people to be instruments of change, giving voice to those silenced or marginalized in our communities. The Chorus commissioned a diverse group of innovative artists to interpret rich historical narratives and personal stories in creating music that explores race and identity, gender and sexuality, inequity and social disparity—music that matters.

    Launched in connection with Brooklyn Youth Chorus’s 2016-17 WQXR artist residency, and bringing together an unusually wide range of artistic collaborators spanning musical genres and art forms, Silent Voices was conceived by Artistic Director Dianne Berkun Menaker to engage the young singers artistically with the subjects and issues about which they are most passionate.

    Brooklyn Youth Chorus
    3

    Named WQXR New York’s 2016-17 Artists-in-Residence and celebrating its 25th anniversary, Brooklyn Youth Chorus is a collective of young singers and vocal ensembles re-envisioning choral music performance through artistic innovation, collaboration, and their distinctively beautiful sound.

    With an incredibly versatile range and repertoire, Brooklyn Youth Chorus combines intensive voice training and music study with exceptional performance experiences. Our artistic excellence and achievement have made us the go-to chorus for leading New York orchestras, popular recording artists, and arts presenters.

    The Chorus’s trademarked Cross-Choral Training® method prepares singers with the skills and technique necessary to perform music from a variety of styles—classical to contemporary—traditional to commercial. With an emphasis on commissioning, the Chorus’s repertoire includes more than 100 original works and world premieres.

    Founded in 1992 by Artistic Director Dianne Berkun Menaker, Brooklyn Youth Chorus’s after-school program encompasses over 600 students in multi-level training divisions and advanced performing ensembles. In addition, students can enroll in a full complement of enrichment classes, individual lessons and summer camp.

    All students perform in the Chorus’s annual concert series, and our advanced ensembles appear regularly at prestigious venues—from Carnegie Hall to the Barbican Theatre. Advanced singers also enjoy opportunities for touring and recording.

    From New Amsterdam Records: “Padma Newsome’s ‘The Vanity of trees'” 

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

    From New Amsterdam Records

    New sonic-essay from acclaimed musician, inspired by landscape of Padma
    Newsome’s home for the past 14 years, Mallacoota, Australia

    Out Nov. 16 — learn more and pre-order here.

    1

    The Vanity of trees is a sonic essay inspired by the landscape of Padma Newsome’s home of the past 14 years, Mallacoota, Australia. The small town of about 1000 people sits along an inlet of the Tasman Sea in the far eastern corner of Victoria, along the edge of wild sea and forest. “Beauty and a stifling harshness exudes: a seeming wonderland of internal rarefied struggle,” Newsome says of the landscape, where he lives a lifestyle of reflection and seclusion.

    Newsome constructs a warm sonic world that explores the woods that envelope his life in the country, including the character-filled trees that have become his closest neighbors and the life they support — Koalas, Lyrebirds, King Parrots, Wombats, Possums, Goannas, and sporadic humans and households. In addition, the record looks at the isolationism and toughness in remote country, the desolation that emerges and destroys families and lives.

    Newsome describes the setting:

    “Grey Gums, some of the main characters, often Koala’d, and stooped in the distance around a pond: a three tree stand. Also distant, but envied, the angophera floribunda, recent from a beating by the Fruit Bats, but still lays a long and broad shade. In absentia, the Snow Gum, who beckons like a phantom from the highlands: a ghostly beauty.

    The Black Wattle, first to be cast and to the left down into a steep escarpment as I wander up the slow winding damp road, now a year later, I see a black puny silhouette, strangled, ‘It’s all I am so what, so what.’

    A statue and fierce in death, an all gnarled Cherry Ballart, bonded to the roots of a Bloodwood, lower limbs cut by man, with bulbous giant black warts clustered at its elbows and corners. Mystery dwellers, long gone, an empty inedible elegance.

    No longer with us: a mature She-oak, allocasuarina, she and he, two friends both laid strewn together after a great storm. They had fallen arm in arm perhaps in a death tryst. White ant, the quiet destroyer, had gotten right in and that same night had felled the most Proud Trunk, an ancient tome. We felt it in our beds and attics, quaking the hill from miles away.

    On neutral ground a towering Bloodwood stands next to a pair of Grey Gums, where the night singers sing under sky and stars.

    At the last, we leave a hollowed clearing. It slowly fills with leaves and sighs and leaves until moist and cold ghosts are silent and mouldy. A single human darkened in shadow looks behind, but the puny Black Wattle has demised.”

    Newsome wrote, performed and recorded the music in large, committed sweeps – relying almost entirely on his gut, ear and modest equipment. His blend of classical, folk and post-rock influences swathed in shifting textures are both grounded and punctuated with his classic and extended techniques on violin and piano. There is an embedded modernism tucked away amongst the leaves. Newsome’s haunting, sometimes yearning, vocals are imbued with his deep respect for his wild companions; the result is a collection of earnest and evocative pieces as sonically varied as the landscape that Newsome honors.

    All instruments and vocals on The Vanity of trees were performed by Newsome, with the exception of the bass recorder, which was performed by Monica Schmidt Andersen. All tracks were recorded and mixed by Newsome except for “Tacky Parlour” and “All Hollowed Out” which were mixed by Anthony “ToK” Norris. Norris also mastered all of the tracks at Norris at ToKwerX in Melbourne.

    Subtle Degrees
    Date:
    September 18, 2018
    Time:

    Doors at 7:30pm, Show at 8pm
    Admission:

    $12 in advance/$15 at door

    Arts + Literature Laboratory is located in Madison’s Schenk-Atwood neighborhood at 2021 Winnebago Street, Madison, Wisconsin 53704.

    On Tuesday, September 18, 2018 at 8pm, ALL presents SUBTLE DEGREES, a new two-musician ensemble consisting of Travis Laplante (tenor saxophone) and Gerald Cleaver (drums). The duo’s uncategorizable sound evokes everything from contemporary classical music, avant garde jazz, minimalism, technical metal, and sacred world music. Laplante is also the founder/composer of saxophone quartet Battle Trance and the ensemble Little Women.

    Tickets can be purchased online in advance for $12 at https://subtledegrees.bpt.me or $15 at the door. Online ticket sales close 1 hour before the show. Doors open at 7:30, show starts at 8pm.

    ‘A Dance That Empties’ is Travis Laplante’s latest album-length composition written for Subtle Degrees, a brand new ensemble consisting of Laplante (tenor saxophone) and Gerald Cleaver (drums). Truly singular and unique in scope, the duo evokes everything from contemporary classical music, avant-garde jazz, trance, minimalism, technical metal, and sacred world music. ‘A Dance That Empties’ is Laplante’s most risky piece to date. The extremely demanding composition pushes the players to the limit both technically and physically, while the raw and vulnerable instrumentation makes for an intimately emotional experience for both performers and audience.

    Ceremonial in shape and form, ‘A Dance That empties’ is a journey that unfolds over the course of approximately 40 minutes, with musical motifs that foreshadow, reoccur, and evolve. The piece refines sonic territory that Laplante has become known for in his saxophone quartet Battle Trance as well as his solo saxophone work, utilizing long periods of circular breathing, and using highly unusual saxophone fingering to create specific resonances. ‘A Dance That Empties’ adds the distinctly new element of complex rhythms (precisely executed by Gerald Cleaver) that compel the listener to completely lose themselves in the hypnotically repetitive, yet consistently and subtly shifting grooves.

    Travis Laplante

    Travis Laplante is a saxophonist, composer, and qigong practitioner living in Brooklyn, New York and southern Vermont. He leads Battle Trance, the acclaimed tenor saxophone quartet; he is also known for his solo saxophone work and his longstanding ensemble Little Women. Laplante has recently performed and/or recorded with Trevor Dunn, Ches Smith, Peter Evans, Sō Percussion, Gerald Cleaver, Michael Formanek, Buke and Gase, Darius Jones, Mat Maneri, and Matt Mitchell, among others. He has toured his music extensively and has appeared at major international festivals such as Moers Festival (Germany), Jazz Em Agosto (Portugal), International Jazz Festival Saalfelden (Austria), Hopscotch (Raleigh, NC), Earshot (Seattle, WA), and many others.

    Popmatters hailed Laplante’s compositions as “an achievement not just for the saxophone, but for avant garde composition as a whole” while the New York Times called Battle Trance’s debut album Palace of Wind “mesmerizing… a floating tapestry of fascinating textures made up of tiny musical motifs, and a music that throbs with tension between stillness and agitation, density and light.”

    Laplante has served as guest faculty at the Royal Academy of Music (Aarhus, Denmark), Dartmouth College, and The New School. As a qigong student of master Robert Peng, Laplante has undergone traditional intensive training. His focus in recent years, under the tutelage of Laura Stelmok, has been on Taoist alchemical medicine and the cultivation of the heart. Laplante is passionate about the intersection of music and medicine. He and his wife are the founders of Sword Hands, a qigong and acupuncture healing practice based in Brooklyn, New York and Putney, Vermont.

    MORE INFO & TICKETS

    New Amsterdam Records is excited to announce the upcoming sophomore album from Grammy Award-winning Brooklyn Youth Chorus, Silent Voices. Out Oct. 26, the album will be available in digital and CD formats and is now available for pre-order on Bandcamp.

    The album features a selection of works from the Chorus’s ongoing multimedia, multi-composer concert series of the same name, installments of which have been performed at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (May 2017), National Sawdust (April 2018) and PROTOTYPE Festival (Jan 2017). On the album, pieces from Jeff Beal (“House of Cards”), Ellis Ludwig-Leone (San Fermin), Mary Kouyoumdjian, Paul Miller/DJ Spooky, Nico Muhly, Shara Nova, Toshi Reagon, Kamala Sankaram, and Caroline Shaw are performed by
    Brooklyn Youth Chorus and the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE).

    The Silent Voices project began during the Brooklyn Youth Chorus’s 25th anniversary season, born out of the desire to create music that was both topically relevant to its very own choristers, and to the time and place in which we all live. Silent Voices gives voice to those that have been silenced or marginalized, and harnesses the power of young people to be instruments of change.

    The Chorus commissioned a diverse group of innovative artists to interpret rich historical narratives and personal stories creating individual works that explore race and identity, gender and sexuality, inequity and social disparity. The series began developing prior to the 2016 election when the political prospects looked very different.

    “After the election, the importance and interpretation of the work changed—just because people’s focus on these issues of racism, sexism, immigration, minorities, and climate change became much more personal,” explains Brooklyn Youth Chorus Founder & Artistic Director Dianne Berkun Menaker.

    “All of a sudden the fear, and the divisiveness, and the categorization—who’s in and who belongs and who’s out—all had very different kinds of meanings. People were frightened, and young people were frightened. All young people are in some way also silent voices in society, because they’re so undervalued. But they in many ways are much more evolved in their thinking than many adults. This world is changing in the hands of young people, and it’s time for people to hear that.”

    The album’s libretto is drawn from personal narratives, interviews, and historical texts, including original writings by Claudia Rankine (Citizen), and passages from authors and thinkers including Michelle Alexander’s The New Jim Crow; George Savile, Marquis of Halifax’s 17th century chapbook to his daughter, The Lady’s New-Year’s Gift; and Patricia Bell-Scott’s The Firebrand and the First Lady, which draws from letters between civil rights activist Pauli Murray and First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt.

    Unifying this musically and topically broad work is the distinctively beautiful sound of the rigorously-trained singers—a chorus of culturally and socioeconomically diverse New York City young people, ages 12–18. This collection of songs and voices has empowered the young singers to use their voices to uplift others, creating music that truly matters.

    A selection of works featured on the Silent Voices album will be performed by Brooklyn Youth Chorus and ICE at NYC’s (Le) Poisson Rouge on Nov. 6, which is, appropriately, Election Day—a day that brings opportunity for Americans to address the very issues the project explores. As Brooklyn Youth Chorus members are not yet able to vote, Silent Voices is an opportunity for their voices to be heard on this critical day.

    From New Amsterdam Records: Brooks Frederickson’s “Small Works” 

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

    SUPPORT NEWAM

    From New Amsterdam Records

    NOW AVAILABLE:

    Brooks Frederickson’s
    Small Works
    available exclusively through
    New Amsterdam’s Bandcamp Subscription
    as part of new Windmill Series

    Artwork by Katrina Neumann

    Small Works is the new album from Durham-based composer Brooks Frederickson. The record is available exclusively through New Amsterdam’s Bandcamp subscription as part of the Windmill Series, a new digitally-focused set of releases for subscribers in addition to our existing release schedule. Subscribe today to receive the album, which will be released on all other platforms on November 16.

    Composer Brooks Frederickson’s debut album Small Works is a snapshot of the community of collaborators Brooks lived and worked with in Brooklyn. The community includes some of the leading contemporary music interpreters of today: Ashley Bathgate (Bang on a Can All Stars), Eliza Bagg (Pavo Pavo), all three members of Bearthoven (Matt Evans, Karl Larson, Pat Swoboda), Exceptet, Longleash, and Brendon Randall-Myers (Invisible Anatomy / Marateck). Small Works comes from not only the small forces needed for each piece, but also from the small amount of material that acts as the germ for each piece.

    The album includes premiere recordings of four of Brooks’ chamber works written between 2014-2017. This group of pieces, some of which have been presented by MATA, premiered at Le Poisson Rouge and presented as a part of Sō Percussion’s Brooklyn Bound series, show Brooks’ interest in building musical worlds out of limited materials.

    The works were recorded at Oktaven Audio by Ryan Streber and Guilford Sound by Dave Snyder. The recordings have been edited, mixed and mastered by Ryan Streber at Oktaven Audio.

    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.
