Late Summer News from Keeril Makan, Annie Gosfield, and Pierre Jalbert

The dog days of summer are upon us, though you wouldn't know it from the activities of our PSNY composers! Annie Gosfield has just released her fourth album on John Zorn's Tzadik label, entitled Almost Truths and Open Deceptions. New York City audiences will be able to hear new works from the album, as well as other works by Gosfield, performed on September 14th at the Bohemian National Hall at the Czech Center, as a part of the Austrian Cultural Forum's annual Moving Sounds Festival. For those unfamiliar with Gosfield's music, here's a clip of the MIVOS Quartet performing The Blue Horse Walks on the Horizon, available on PSNY:

On the other side of the Atlantic, BBC Radio 3 has recently broadcast two works by Keeril Makan on Max Reinhardt's Late Junction show: The Noise Between Thoughts and Resonance Alloy, both available on PSNY. Sample the beautiful recording of Resonance Alloy here: 

Finishing up this week's news, we have recently published Pierre Jalbert's The Invention of the Saxophone on a poem by Billy Collins, for alto saxophone, percussion, and optional narrator. Listen to a sample of the piece here: 

Keep tuned for our next post next week with some exciting announcements for the new season!

Mid-Week PSNY News Roundup!

Since we've launched two weeks ago, we've seen some encouraging press, a lot of twitter and facebook activity, and thousands of new visitors to the site. Thanks everyone! Brief reminder: if you don't yet, follow us on Twitter and Facebook!

A lot has been going on with our PSNY composers, so I thought I might give a brief rundown of the news from the past week:

Annie Gosfield has been profiled in the Telegraph about a nice new project that's premiering later this month. The ensemble includes the eight-person Ensemble Athelas, and a trio with Gosfield, Roger Kleier, and Chris Cutler (Henry Cow, Pere Ubu, & many more). The music for the ensemble is notated, but the trio will improvise based on material they will develop during rehearsals. If you're in the UK, don't miss this!

Gregory Spears has just released a new album, Requiem, on New Amsterdam Records! There will be an album release party at Galapagos Art Space in Brooklyn on November 21st, featuring a performance of the entire album. 

Finally, for those in Ireland, the Crash Ensemble will be performing Timothy Andres' "Crashing Through Fences" on November 25th, on their "Young Americans" program. Give it a listen before you go:
