To celebrate our physical album release date, I Care If You Listen has posted each track of Corps Exquis with its corresponding companion video. We love the videos, and it is great fun for us members of TRANSIT to watch them with the music, rather than focusing on performing the piece!
These videos are exclusively streaming through I Care If You Listen, and will only be available for viewing until Friday, June 28. Otherwise, you will have to wait for a live performance of Corps Exquis!
Next Tuesday, TRANSIT will make its way to Homer, Alaska for the inaugural season of the Wild Shore Festival for New Music!
The last time we were in Alaska was March of 2012, when we performed in the Multicultural Drumming and Dance Celebration at the Alaska Native Heritage Center in Anchorage. It was cold, snowy, and beautiful. We’re not only excited to experience Alaska in the summer, but to spend time in the lovely town of Homer. We will be joined by guest rockstar performers Eileen Mack, Vicky Chow, and Katie Cox.
We’ll be presenting an awesome array of pieces by John Luther Adams, Thomas Adès, Sean Friar, David Lang, Steven Mackey, and Conrad Winslow. Additionally, we’ll be a part of a massive community-wide performance of Terry Riley’s seminal work “In C,” and collaborate with Homer’s own Los Holy Santos Gang for a DoubleBill concert, Homer style! Check out the Wild Shore website for more information.
Stay tuned for pictures of “fishing just for the halibut” (pardon the pun, it was too tempting), a floating amphitheater stage, and more!
TRANSIT will be performing music by Tim Hansen in Kathleen Supové’s Music with a View festival at the Flea Theater in TriBeCa. Admission is free, but reservations are strongly encouraged. Stick around after the performance for discussion moderated by Todd Reynolds. Also performing is Amplified Cactus Salon.
