Newspeak vs. Secret Society —
Mind control experiments and conspiracy theories are the subject matter for brand-new music performed by an electric chamber ensemble and a Grammy-nominated big band. Those are just two of the four offerings on this New Sounds Live concert at Merkin Hall, part of the Ecstatic Music Festival, on Thursday February 24, 2011 at 7:30. Socially engaged, hybrid genre-straddling ensembles Newspeak and Darcy James Argue’s Secret Society take on brand new works written specifically for each.
