Ecstatic Music Fest: Oneida and Rhys Chatham

Saturday, March 17, 2012  |  7:30pm


Listen to this concert on Q2 Music.

Legendary composer Rhys Chatham, “who toys with the expectations of amplified guitars so mirthfully in his punk-influenced orchestrations” (New York Times), is joined by the “Brooklyn psych alchemists” (Pitchfork) Oneida, whose performance at the recent All Tomorrow’s Parties festival was called “some of the best music I heard all weekend” by Ben Ratliff in the New York Times.

An early innovator and stalwart of the Brooklyn underground music scene, Oneida has been making genre-defying, decidedly uncompromising music for over a decade. Unhindered by limitations of time or energy, Oneida has also become known for their epic 24-hour improvisational performances, most notably at recent All Tomorrow's Parties festivals. Their latest project is a triptych of albums collectively called Thank Your Parents started in 2008 with Preteen Weaponry, followed by 2009's triple-album Rated O and completed with 2011's Absolute II.

The program will be announced from the stage.
