Roald Hoffman, Dave Soldier hosts

Jeff Lankov, piano;  Ken Perlin, animations
ENTERTAINING SCIENCE  image
Loops, Waves, and Textures

In the early 1970’s, John Adams began to write music that combined his interest in American popular music, the classics, and electronics. Inspired by the waveform transformation that occurs in a modulating circuit, Adams set out to write music “as if the piano was a generator of waveforms,” by using loops, phasing, and algorithmic devices. Pianist Jeff Lankov will perform Adams’ first exploration into minimalism, the revolutionary Phrygian Gates; as well as his “manic, bipolar scherzo,”American Berserk.

Waves are at the heart of what Ken Perlin does. Ken, who directs the NYU Games for Learning Institute, is an Academy Award winning computer scientist at NYU’s Media Research Laboratory who has created a goodly number of the techniques used in today's cinema. His interests include animation with personality, realistic textures, and educational computer games. For this event, he will be creating original graphically animated work inspired by Jeff's interpretation of John Adams' music.

Poetry image
Steve Griffiths was born by the sea in Wales, and lives in London. He will be reading in New York from his sixth poetry collection, Surfacing, published by Cinnamon Press. Surfacing begins underground, in an abandoned place, where there are stirrings, occasional explosions into an inexplicably dazzling light, an insistence on miracles of optimism, flashes of humour.

Amy Holman is the author of the poetry collections, Wrens Fly Through This Opened Window and Wait For Me, I'm Gone. Recent publications include Zocalo Public Square, The Same, and the anthology, Token Entry: Poems Celebrating the NYC Subway. She works as a literary consultant, and lives in Brooklyn.

Mervyn Taylor is a Trinidad-born poet who divides his time between Brooklyn, NY, and his island home. He has taught at Bronx Community College, The New School, and in the New York City public school system. He is the author of four volumes of poetry: An Island of His Own, The Goat, and Gone Away, all from Junction Press, and a recent collection, No Back Door (Shearsman Books, 2010).

Jay Chollick has had extensive feature readings in NYC and environs—out-of-state as well. Appears frequently on TV and Radio; has been extensively published in prominent literary journals and is a recipient of many awards

8:30PM  CLASSICAL AT THE CORNELIA: EVAN SHINNERS@BACH
Evan Shinners, piano
Classical At The Cornelia: Evan Shinners@Bach image
Classical At The Cornelia presents pianist Evan Shinners in an all Bach program.

"bona fide bach star" - TimeOut New York

Evan Shinners is becoming known as the voice of Bach for today's generation. Unconcerned with preconceptions of how bach should be played, or with conventions of what a finished recording should sound like, this wildly talented pianist and 2010 Juilliard graduate released @bach (december 2011 on new cull records), a compilation of two live, unedited performances recorded at Juilliard and Rockefeller University. The Huffington Post hailed @bach as "essential, one of the brattiest Bach recordings to come along since Glenn Gould himself."

Shinners currently performs 'all-bach' recitals throughout the United States, has made three tours of Taiwan, and has played in Europe and Canada over the last two summers. In January 2011, Shinners was seen and heard by over 10,000 Museum of Modern Art attendees during his residency at MoMA's "stop, repair, prepare: variations on ode to joy for prepared piano." Shinners was interviewed by CBS "eye on new york" and a review of the cover of The New York Times arts section declared, "Evan Shinners attacked the score with a bravura that might have pleased Liszt."

Originally from Denver, Colorado, Shinners began playing piano at age 9 and gave his orchestral debut at age 12. He holds undergrad and Masters degrees from Juilliard where he studied with Jerome Lowenthal. When he is not playing bach, Shinners can be found writing poetry and a novel, or playing rock in Brooklyn warehouses with his Julliard colleagues.

10:00PM  CLASSICAL AT THE CORNELIA: BACH AND HOW FAR BEYOND
Anne Rainwater, piano
Classical At The Cornelia: Bach and How Far Beyond image

Come hear contemporary pianist Anne Rainwater take on J.S. Bach, Maurice Ravel, Elliot Carter, and John Zorn. Drawing from repertoire that spans an extensive range of emotional expression and compositional ideas, Anne hopes to address today's pressing musical question: how far are we willing to push our ears and minds, especially when we listen to new and older music side-by-side?

Now residing in Manhattan, San Francisco native Anne Rainwater is a multi-talented artist known for her compelling interpretations of music from Bach to Zorn. An active freelancer and teacher, Anne has appeared at The Kennedy Center, Le Poisson Rouge, the Rose Studio at Lincoln Center, Bargemusic, and the Galapagos Art Space, amongst others. In April 2010, she presented Messiaen’s Oiseaux Exotique with the TACTUS ensemble. Other recent varied appearances include a trio performance at Mass MOCA, a concerto premiere at UC San Diego, a live radio appearance on KZYX’s “The Mind of the Composer,” a residency at Louisiana State University, and recital appearances at the Mendocino Music Festival and with the Nevada County Composers Cooperative. She was also profiled in the inaugural issue of Siren: Rock’s First Magazine for Women. Anne holds a Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance from the Oberlin College Conservatory of Music and a Master of Music in Contemporary Piano Performance from the Manhattan School of Music. She has taught at the University of Miami and Marin Academy High School in California and is currently on faculty at Music Wise and the Riverdale Music Studio. Anne has recorded for Oberlin Conservatory’s Aural Capacity Series, as well as for Cat Crisis and Bourbon Thomas Records. When not at the piano, she can be found training for her next marathon, playing with her cat Ernie, reading fiction, or experimenting in the kitchen.

Kris Davis, piano;  Ben Monder, guitar;  Kermit Driscoll, bass;  John Hollenbeck, drums
Kermit Driscoll Qt.  image
Kermit Driscoll is a veteran bass player who has recorded and performed with many noted musicians including Chet Baker, Dave Douglas, Bill Frisell, Bang-on-a-Can All Stars, Mel Torme, Kenny Werner and John Zorn. Earlier this year, at age 55, Driscoll released his debut album as a leader, Reveille, a program of kaleidoscopic funk, experimental abstractions, and fetching intricacies. The album features an all-star lineup, including Driscoll’s longtime collaborators Bill Frisell (guitar) and Vinnie Coliaiuta (drums), and rising star pianist Kris Davis. Reveille’s star-studded quartet united for only a day, but it performs like a group that’s worked together for ages. Driscoll appears at Cornelia Street with two out of three of the personnel from Reveille, marking the group’s first live appearance as an ensemble.

“The feel of [Reveille] is loose and flowing, with edgy guitaristic elements but also tightly composed and chamberlike thematic statements .” David R. Adler, Jazztimes, April 2011

While pianist Gilson Schachnik and drummer Mauricio Zottarelli were both born in the state of Sao Paulo, Brazil it wasn’t until they landed in Boston that Brazilian music seized their imagination. Now their captivating new album MOZIK reflects their deep engagement with Brazilian rhythms and forms, filtered through their love of Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock. The album features Brazilian guitarist Gustavo Assis-Brasil, Russian flutist Yulia Musayelyan and Argentine bassist Fernando Huergo.
