John Blum, piano and Jake Meginsky, percussion in concert at Anchor House

WHAT: JOHN BLUM, piano + JAKE MEGINSKY, percussion in concert
WHEN: Friday, October 25, 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
WHERE: Anchor House of Artists, Ground Floor, 518 Pleasant Street Northampton MA U.S.A.

A night of daring, acoustical majesty from two thunderheads of the contemporary, original composition, Blum and Maginski perform in the Experimental Performance Arena at the Anchor House of Artists. Critic Massimo Ricci describes the experience of the New York City pianist as that of "persnickety furiousness flowing so magnificently that the resultant masses of superimposed harmonies nearly depict a ground for contemplation." Artforum Magazine wrote, "Meginsky juggles off-kilter patterns of undulating bass, prickly sine pulses, and shards of white noise to build rhythmic worlds of dizzying density, depth, and textural variety."
