Organic Sampling

Guest composer Phillip K Bimstein, ex-new waver, former mayor of Springdale, Utah, and environmental activist, presents his music for acoustic ensembles and "organic sampling," including his best-known work, "Garland Hirschi's Cows." His work "Casino" will be performed at Merkin Hall this Thursday, May 8. Perhaps we'll hear a bit of that , and maybe some of a brand-new piece "Cats in the Kitchen," scored for flute, oboe, meows, purrs, cracked eggs, sliced onions, buttered toast, sizzling skillets, spoons, knives, pepper grinder, toaster oven, pots, pans, draining dishwater, and pretty much everything else in the kitchen "sync.”
