Corps Exquis: Daniel Wohl featuring Transit
Daniel Wohl featuring Transit
Fri, Mar 27
Experience this large-scale multimedia performance at the intersection of video installation, rock concert, avant-garde cinema, and experimental classical and electronic music. Corp Exquis was created in the fashion of the parlor game exquisite corpse, developed by the Surrealists in 1920s Paris: each player is assigned a section of an artwork, but only allowed a glimpse of the very end of the previous player’s contribution. Now, in concert form, the mix of live music, electronics, and stunning video art comes alive in an evening of supreme musicianship and visual grandeur.
“Vivid, detailed and engaging . . . boldly surreal aural experience.” Steve Smith, The New York Times
“What’s important to me in this concert is the balance between electronics and live instruments. All my electronic sounds are derived from acoustic instruments, so I’m continuously trying to change the perception of what’s produced by an instrument and what is processed.” Daniel Wohl, composer
Daniel Wohl: electronics.
Transit: piano, percussion, violin, cello, and clarinet.
Electroacoustic composer and performer Daniel Wohl developed Corps Exquis with the acclaimed new music quintet Transit and a collective of New York-based video artists. The album version of Corps Exquis (New Amsterdam Records) was voted best album of 2013 by WNYC New Sounds listeners and included in NPR Music’s top 100 songs of 2013.
