Brooklyn Bound

The loft scene is alive!

Now in its ninth 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 trying out new material and a broad range of artists whom we invite to perform. In 2020, we transitioned to virtual concerts during the pandemic, and we now have returned to in-person shows with live streaming.

All of our artists have been featured on 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.

Accessibility: our studio is on the second floor of a loft building in Brooklyn. Parking is usually available about a block away under the BQE and on parallel side streets in the evenings. Entry to #205 is via a buzzer which is about 6 feet off the ground (please reach out ahead of time and we can provide you with a number to text for entry). After a small ramp into the doorway, an elevator to the second floor is available on the left. From there, there is a long hallway leading to our studio at #205. We have one all-gender bathroom which we are in the process of making accessible.

If you would like to attend an event at our studio and you require any accommodations, please don’t hesitate to contact us ahead of time! Email shelby@sopercussion.com.

Longleash

Longleash (violin, cello, piano) is an ensemble with traditional instrumentation and experimental practice. Praised for their “subtle and meticulous musicianship” (Strad), Longleash is dedicated to innovative programming, culturally responsive artistic practices, and new music advocacy. In addition to the traditional activities of a performing ensemble, Longleash also leads proprietary educational projects (Loretto Project, Pathways Initiative) with a focus on gender equity and financial accessibility; produces interdisciplinary projects that respond to social issues in our environment and community; and fosters meaningful relationship-building and a non-hierarchical approach to collaborations with creative and community partners alike.

Longleash performs, records, and commissions repertoire from a wide range of musical styles, blending a background in classical chamber music with a curiosity for the sonic and artistic potential of their traditional instrumentation. The trio programs and commissions works that expand the piano trio’s sonic palette and deepen its artistic impact, incorporating new playing techniques, non-traditional instruments, and multimedia elements to create unique and captivating performance experiences.

Damsel

Damsel doesn’t apologize. The indie neofolk duo integrates their background as classical chamber musicians with folk music leanings to create an intricate instrumental sound around tight vocal harmonies. The singing-songwriting team is Monica Mugan on vocals/acoustic guitar and Beth Meyers on vocals/viola/banjo/ukulele. Their second album, ‘New to You’ is available via Bandcamp and features Jason Treuting on drums, Florent Ghys on bass and Dan Trueman on hardanger fiddle.

Phong Tran

Phong Tran is a Brooklyn-based composer, electronic musician, and visual artist. His works are heavily inspired by the sound of early synthesizers and the noises and grinds of experimental electronics. Much of his work is developed through late-night Wikipedia dives while obsessing over things like simulation theory, abstract story structure, Dungeons & Dragons, and vaporwave eccojams.

Sō Percussion
