Pop-up Concert W/ Michael Nicolas

  • Miller Theatre 2960 Broadway (at 116th Street) New York, NY 10027 USA

Bring a friend, grab a drink, and join some of today’s most interesting performers onstage at Miller Theatre on select evenings.

Cellist Michael Nicolas enlists some of his longtime collaborators, including composer Annie Gosfield, to bring this repertoire to Miller audiences. This Pop-Up explores the cello in relation to electronics and computer music, pairing one of the most traditionally classical instruments with its singularly contemporary counterpoint. In flexura, composer Jaime Oliver accompanies Nicolas on MANO controller, an electronic instrument of his own design that uses video to track hand movement to create sound. Downtown Cellist/improviser Erik Friedlander joins Mike in presenting John Zorn's Bagatelles.

All Pop-Up Concerts start at 6 p.m. Admission is on a first-come, first-served basis, and doors open at 5:30 p.m.
