The loft scene is alive!
Now in its seventh year, Brooklyn Bound is a popular series of concerts at Sō’s working studio in the Navy Yard section of Brooklyn. When social distance became a necessity, we decided to create a new version and transition to a fully virtual one. 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 in the youtube playlist, which you can search on the upper right hand corner of the embedded video.
Brooklyn Bound is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.

“Elevated themselves into those elite ranks alongside Yarn/Wire, Tigue, Iktus and Ensemble Et Al”, as described by the New York Music Daily, Pathos Trio (percussionists Marcelina Suchocka, Felix Reyes, and pianist/composer Alan Hankers) is committed to engaging classical/contemporary music, while also aiming to bring adventurous music to audiences through collaborations with young, living new music composers. Whether it’s performing with major ensembles overseas, to creating exciting collaborative chamber music projects with musicians across New York City, when each member is brought together they create a tour de force to be reckoned with.
Their most current project “When Dark Sounds And Classical Music Collide”, Pathos Trio has commissioned new works for piano and two percussionists written exclusively for ensemble by composers Alison Yun-Fei Jiang, Evan Chapman, Alyssa Weinberg, Alan Hankers, and Finola Merivale, each piece currently scheduled to be recorded throughout Spring/Summer 2021 by Philadelphia based film company Four/Ten Media. This project is graciously supported by New Music USA, Foundation for Contemporary Arts, and Artist Relief and will also be released as Pathos Trio’s very first LP.
The two pieces you’ll hear in Pathos’ set today, Distance Between Places and our teaser trailer for our new commission oblivious/oblivion by Finola Merivale (that’s part of our project mentioned above), add new originality to familiar sounds and characteristics that are oftentimes considered synonymous with New York City’s music – from utilizing urban sounds produced by using industrial metals as instruments, utilizing man-made/ found objects in unconventional ways, to even expanding on processes used in minimalist music such as that of Steve Reich and blending genres of music together. We hope you’ll all enjoy the performances of these works, and we thank Sō Percussion again for hosting and inviting us to be a part of their Brooklyn Bound Series!
