Ecstatic Music Festival continues (Dan Deacon is sold out)

For the dozens of artists who participated in the opening marathon concert of the Ecstatic Music Festival at Merkin Concert Hall on Monday, the event was less a defining breakthrough moment than the establishment — temporary or not — of an uptown beachhead for a flourishing alliance normally encountered in downtown and Brooklyn spaces like Le Poisson Rouge, Galapagos Art Space, Issue Project Room and Joe’s Pub.

The notion of a mission seemed too heavy for the feel of this sprawling showcase, which was meant to run for seven hours and consumed nearly eight. If there was a core statement, it could have been — to twist slightly the title of a song by Sarah Kirkland Snider, a gifted composer to be featured in a later festival event — “This is what we’re like.” [NY Times]

The Chiara String Quartet and the Music of Nico Muhly & Valgeir Sigurdsson” happened last night (1/19), and the Ecstatic Music Festival continues tonight with a now-sold out Dan Deacon & So Percussion show. Some videos from previous shows below..
