Ecstatic Music Festival: Alarm Will Sound -
Alarm System

Saturday, May 13, 2017  |  8:30pm


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

“One of the most vital and original ensembles on the American music scene,” Alarm Will Sound brings artists from a variety of musical backgrounds together to create new work through "Alarm System." The “reliably exhilarating” (New York Times) ensemble will perform a concert of New York premieres exclusively. 

The performance will include music by Icelandic producer/composer/engineer Valgeir Sigurðsson, who has worked with artists such as Björk, Brian Eno, Feist, and Sigur Ròs; excerpts from the soundtrack to the television show Hannibal by musician and composer Brian Reitzell; Common Fate by American composer/musician Tyondai Braxton; two works by British composer and sound artist Matt Rogers (Game Show Outpatient); and Aphex Twin’s minipops 67 arranged by Chris Thompson

Alarm Will Sound has a established a reputation for going to extremes to bring to life powerful, engaging sound worlds. For this performance they will employ a host of extended techniques and a battery of additional instruments to create music that is at times hypnotic, playful, unnerving, or exuberant but always compelling.
