Brooklyn Bound

The loft scene is alive!

Now in its sixth year, Brooklyn Bound is a popular series of concerts at Sō’s working studio in the Navy Yard section of Brooklyn. Casual and intimate, the concerts feature us and emerging ensembles from our local scene.

New in 2019, the Brooklyn Bound Podcast! Check it out below on this page. Each batch of new episodes appears underneath the listing, and we have an archive at the bottom of the page.

Brooklyn Bound is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

Featuring: Aynsley Vandenbroucke, Aaron Edgcomb, and Jenny Beck!

Aynsely Vandenbroucke

Called “gifted” by The New Yorker and “an elegant, sensitive thinker” by The New York Times, Aynsley Vandenbroucke is obsessed with the movement of ideas and the choreography of experiences. She’s a performance maker, teacher, and writer — and less and less sure of any difference between the three. In different iterations her current project has been called Gathering SpaceArt Church, Body and Language Project, and Contemplative Evenings That Sometimes Happen in the Afternoon. It is probably all of these and for Brooklyn Bound she’ll be trying new, related experiments.

Aaron Edgcomb 

Aaron Edgcomb is a composer, and percussionist whose work appears in such contexts as improvisational music, jazz, “new music”, noise, and song.

Aaron has performed in and composed for many ensembles and has collaborated with such artists as Chris Williams, John Zorn, Ted Reichman, Katie McShane, Joanna Mattrey, Anthony Coleman, Simon Hanes, The Ladles, and Adam Dunson.

Featured at Sō’s Brooklyn Bound: REA is a solo percussion and electronics project that incorporates aspects of song-writing, improvisation, and electronic music. A major thesis of REA is to engage in a clear, non-abstract, way with social, intellectual, and political concepts that Aaron sees as valuable to social discourse.

Jenny Beck

Jenny Beck is a composer who is interested in listening and breathing, listening and breathing…

She writes music for instruments, voices, electronics, and found objects in a variety of small and large ensembles. Her work reflects her interests in nature, meditation, ambience, and ambiguity.

Jenny is currently pursuing a PhD in music composition at Princeton University.
