Thank you!

Kick it!

Hi again!

Remember how we said to stay tuned for details about our recording? Today, we are embarking on a kickstarter campaign to raise funds to cover studio and production costs. We have some exciting incentives for your donation, and we appreciate your generosity! Please visit this link to learn more about the project.





Long time, no post! We are really excited for our upcoming show in February at the acclaimed Ecstatic Music Festival, which fosters new collaborations between artists.

If you’ve never been to one of these shows before, you’re in for a treat. It’s fun to see artists you know working with ones you haven’t heard of before, or to see interesting pairings of your favorite groups. We will be joining forces with Julia Holter and Laurel Halo on a new collaboration (along with our very own Daniel Wohl), in addition to playing excerpts from Corps Exquis (post-recording! Did we mention we’re making an album??? Tune in later this week for details…) and other top-secret stuff. For more information and to buy tickets, visit this link.

Friends, get out your calendars, because we have an exciting event coming up!

You might have heard the news that we’re headed to the studio to record a full-length album for New Amsterdam Records. If you’re a close friend of TRANSIT, you may also know that Daniel Wohl’s birthday is on September 7th.

On Friday, September 7th, we will be having a fundraiser party from 9pm to 3am at the Toro Lounge in Tribeca, located in the Smyth Hotel’s Plein Sud brasserie. They have graciously agreed to donate a generous percentage of the night’s alcohol sales to fund our upcoming album. We are also excited to have two awesome acts providing music: DJ Yoraura spinning funk and disco tunes, and stunning synth compositions by Lorna Dune.

If you haven’t heard about the Toro Lounge, it is swanky, has delicious cocktails, and has authentic French matador capes on the walls. Bring your friends for fun and to support our album! If you already have plans that night, drop by for a drink before or after. We’d love to see you!

Lots of exciting things are happening with TRANSIT as the season draws to a close. It’s been a wonderful year full of interesting adventures, and we are very excited about the way things are shaping up for next season!

The DoubleBill Series will be back in full force next year with concerts focusing on compelling things happening in the new music scenes of Australia and Denmark. As this series matures (five years going strong!), we are excited to build upon its structure to allow for deeper collaborations and cultural exchanges, while remaining true to its adventurous, globetrotting spirit.

We are also excited to continue our relationship with the Kent Gallery in Chelsea to provide a platform for innovative performers to present solo sets of experimental music in an intimate setting through the Spotlight Series. The series’ most recent concert featuring cellist Evelyn Farny and toy piano virtuoso Phyllis Chen was a smashing success, and we look forward to presenting more captivating programs featuring adventurous performers in the coming year.

Details about next year’s DoubleBill and Spotlight seasons coming soon!

In other news, TRANSIT was recently awarded a grant from the Cary New Music Fund (Meet the Composer/New Music USA).  We are so pleased to be a beneficiary of this very important program that provides vital support to new music organizations based in the five boroughs of NYC. These funds will help TRANSIT pursue its big goals by assisting with the many small, unglamorous tasks that are required to get the music written, produced, and performed! If you have a few dollars to spare, please consider chipping in to our general operating fund to amplify the positive effects of this grant.  You can donate online here.

Finally, TRANSIT is starting a new online initiative called ComposerViews. The idea behind this new feature came from the realization that while TRANSIT often has lots of opportunities to have interesting chats with composers when we work on their music together, listeners and audiences don’t generally have the same opportunities to hear composers discuss their ideas about music. ComposerViews provides a space for composers to sound off on music (and anything else that comes to mind via free-wheeling interviews) which are posted on the TRANSIT website. Check out our latest interview here with the totally captivating Angélica Negrón.

Happy Summer!
