Dave McDonnell's 5th World
Dave McDonnell's 5th World
Dave McDonnell’s 5th world is the composer/reedist’s newest project, which reflects his preoccupation with loop based computer music, Non-Western rhythms and live signal processing. For this performance he’ll be joined by drummer Qunlian Kirchner.

David McDonnell: Computer, Soprano Saxophone and Contra Alto Clarinet

Quinlan Kirchner: Drums

“McDonnell has become immersed in electronic music…the three movements of his piece, Æpse - on which computer sounds mesh beautifully with meditative then turbulent arco lines from cellist Tomeka Reid…”

The Chicago Reader
Chandeliers have been making artful yet accessible kaleidoscopic eletronic music for 12 years, putting a twist on avant-garde, electronic, and film music influeneces. Utilizing a plethora of analog synthesizers, organs, samplers, and tradition percussion they create electonic music with the dynamic of an ensemble and a more defined organic feel. A brand new full-length "Law of Fives" is due October 2017 on the freshly minted Potions Music NYC imprint.

Chris Kalis: synthesizers, sampler
Scott McGaughey: synthesizers
Harry Brenner: drums, synthesizer

"The melange of references range from disco to Acid; from Herbie Hancock to House; the colour of psychedelia to the groove of Moroder, all united by a cleaner than clean electronic sound. It’s music for a perfect world, the soundtrack for a club where the dawn never comes and the lights are never turned on." --THE WIRE
