We are in the midst of the 2014 Ecstatic Music Festival that pairs pop performers with modern composers and experimental musicians for fascinating and original collaborations. Last week (2/12) at Merkin Hall the fest put together arty (and David Byrne-approved) indie pop combo People Get Ready with Lesley Flanigan, who is not only an electronic musician but is also known for building her own equipment. The night started with Flanigan’s original composition, “Amplifications: for handmade speaker feedback instrument and voice” after which People Get Ready joined her for another original composition, “Mappers, Turners.” Then PGR ended the night with a full set of new and old songs. Pictures from that show are in this post.

The next installment of Ecstatic Music Festival happens on Saturday (2/22) at Carnegie Hall, pairing Wilco drummer (among other things) Glenn Kotche with ensemble Victoire (led by modern classical composer Missy Mazzoli). Tickets for that show are still available.
