WNYC

Jason Treuting, the percussionist/composer -his mallets, sticks, and music - certainly get around.   Treuting has made music with and for So Percussion, the Swedish folk-instrument wielding QQQ, the electronica duo Matmos, the Zappa-jazzy band Kneebody, and the guitarist/composer Steve Mackey, to name a few.  On this New Sounds, listen to music featuring Jason Treuting as soloist, collaborator, and composer.  There’s also music from multi-instrumentalist/composer Nick Zammuto, co-founder of the sonically and visually innovative duo the Books.

He’s just launched a new band, Zammuto, whose music features tightly integrated video projection, synched rhythmically with the tunes.  Listen to Zammuto’s pieces written for violinist Todd Reynolds and cellist Zach Miskin, music from the Books, and possibly a sample of the forthcoming Zammuto record. This is all in advance of Treuting and Zammuto’s upcoming collaboration of laser-and video based music, (and spelling bee!) which will be part of next week’s joint New Sounds Live / Ecstatic Music Festival event, on Thursday Feb. 23rd at Merkin Hall.
