Lawrence Chandler formerly of Bowery Electric is headlining our block party bill for Make Music New York on June 21st. From his MySpace:
Lawrence Chandler is an American composer of experimental music living in Brooklyn, New York. He studied composition at The Juilliard School and privately with La Monte Young. Chandler has worked as a music assistant for Philip Glass and is a founder of seminal post-rock group Bowery Electric.
Lawrence Chandler is a sponsored project of Fractured Atlas, a non-profit arts service organization.
Lately his MySpace page has featured lengthy tonal pieces that I find suprizingly addictive to listen to. As he hasn't released anything officially solo, and his MySpace has only had up one (non-downloadable) track at a time, his set for MMNY should be exciting to say the least (if you're iterested, there are rumors of a string quartet).
He will be on last, sometime around 7:30/8pm, and weather permitting, there should be a gorgeous sunset behind him...sounds like a perfect ending to a music festival to me.
Come join us at Sackett between Henry and Hicks on Sunday June 21st for our block party for Make Music New York.
