The 2019 Ecstatic Music Festival at NYC’s Kaufman Center began last night (1/7) with LA chamber orchestra wild Up, goth-pop great Zola Jesus and composer William Brittelle. Various combos of wild Up performed during the whole show, and Zola joined them to sing three of her own songs (two of which had new arrangements by JG Thrilwell), and she also sang on two of Brittelle’s compositions.
