David Greilsammer: The Labyrinth
Dates: Aug 25
Auditorium: National Sawdust
Contact: Brin Solomon

  Brooklyn, NY United States
Phone: 6467998455

Pianist David Greilsammer takes a musical journey to the heart of a strange and dazzling labyrinth in this solo recital that spans musical eras. “On An Overgrown Path”, Leoš Janá?ek’s anthology of short piano pieces, forms the basis for the program, with other pieces interspersed like hidden vistas revealed by a winding path. These inset moments include everything from Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach’s gallant flourishes to a new work from Ofer Pelz commissioned specifically for this project, and they climax in a new piano arrangement of the French Baroque composer Jean-Féry Rebel’s strikingly dissonant depiction of primordial chaos. This wide-ranging program explores the ways that feelings of inner disorientation can lead to the pursuit of new routes and ideas.

Rinde Eckert: The Natural World

Rinde Eckert, the alchemical musician and theatre-maker, presents his most personal project to date: “The Natural World”, an album that ranges far and wide across Eckert’s expansive musical life — including a freshly customized version of “Black Is The Color Of My True Love’s Hair”, the Anglo-American folk classic that served as early inspiration for him. There are moving lyrics of love and dreams alongside several songs of pure vocalise, where words fall away to let the melody convey deep emotion directly. In addition to singing these songs, Eckert also accompanies himself on a wide range of instruments from several different continents. With its contemplative yet communicative beauty, “The Natural World” feels like an offering of empathy in polarized times.

Long before 30,000 people were showing up each day at the AFROPUNK festival at Brooklyn’s Commodore Barry Park, the Liberation Sessions were regular, intimate gatherings of the nascent AFROPUNK community, taking place in neighborhood clubs and hangs around new York City, featuring films, live music and DJs, and a lot of real talk. These parties formed bonds, the crucible in which the core AFROPUNK community was forged and its worldly point-of-view activated. Now, we’re bringing the Liberation Sessions back, to National Sawdust, and building upon those gains. The Liberation Sessions is a regular event that mixes music, media, activism and camaraderie, touching upon the sounds and issues that are galvanizing the AFROPUNK community. It will be musically diverse, media- and platform-agnostic, and most of all, unapologetically Black. The primary goal of these intimate gatherings will be the flowing exchange of ideas about cultural progress and social change. Curation of the Liberation Sessions will be handled by

Independent musical artist VÉRITÉ brings a set of her searching, personal music to National Sawdust. Albumism declares that “VÉRITÉ holds nothing back in conveying her truth directly and defiantly”, and that directness and defiance have led her to massive grassroots popularity and several national headliner tours. As part of The Hum Series — which celebrates and nourishes female and nonbinary artists in New York City and beyond — this special concert features new custom arrangements by Kristine Kruta for an all–female pop chamber orchestra. Working outside the proscriptive world of major album labels, VÉRITÉ and Little Kruta are helping keep the spirit of independent music alive.

New Music. New Jazz. Curated by John Zorn. The John Zorn Commissioning Series celebrates Zorn’s revolutionary venue, The Stone, a non-profit venue that was “dedicated to the experimental and avant-garde” and served as a vital spot for new music in Manhattan’s Alphabet City for over a decade. Held on the last Wednesday of every month, National Sawdust honors the spirit of the Stone, hosting the world premiere of new works. This month’s concert features music by Bill Frisell and Ikue Mori. Frisell is a Grammy–nominated composer and guitarist who has been hailed as “one of the most distinctive and original improvising guitarists of our time” (New York Times), and Mori was a core member of the epochal no wave band DNA that reshaped the landscape of experimental rock and noise music. Together, these two virtuosic improvisers will create an all-original sonic landscape built from their distinct individual voices.
