Lead by percussionists Amy Garapic and Doug Perkins and in conjunction with New York City’s annual summer solstice celebration Make Music New York, a team of ten percussionists will gather in front of the New York Stock Exchange on Wall Street to present an 18-hour long, full performance of Erik Satie’s Vexations on vibraphone.
Owen Davis and Wes Hawkins are organizing Arizona’s very own Vexations performance to be played and streamed live to New York simultaneously. You can join in this performing by emailing owen at: firstname.lastname@example.org and joining the facebook group: http://www.facebook.com/groups/360267360693824/360419130678647/ for updates and access to the music and files.
The performance is on June 21st from 6am to 12am (midnight) at Wes Hawkins Rhythm is Life studio in Phoenix. Each shift will be around 30 minutes so we need as many players as possible to make this happen easily.
Hope to see you there!
