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.

“Three Necks for electric guitarist James Moore and I Was Hooked for bassist Eleonore Oppenheim are my two newest commissions in my Portrait Pieces Project – a series of pieces that act as sonic portraits of performer and composer at once. For James’s portrait, I recorded a scrabble game I played with him and Jascha Narveson (scrabble figures prominently my friendship with James!) and made a tape track out of the wacky musings of our merry trio to play along with the Zorn-inflected score I created for him. For Eleonore, I was really inspired by her engagement with the indie rock scene, as well as her minimalist and post-minimalist roots, so I used recordings of her playing and her description of her musical experiences to create a low fi “percussion” heavy track to run beneath her alternatingly mechanistic or lyrical live bass part.” – Lainie Fefferman

Caroline Shaw and Sō Percussion combine forces for a powerful new original set of songs composed together and will perform excerpts from Let the Soil Play Its Simple Part. Shaw’s faultless ear for melody and harmony, combined with Sō’s rhythmic invention and compositional experimentation, make for a world of sonic richness that feels fresh and unique. It is a journey across the landscape of the soul, told through the medium of distinctly contemporary songs which represent Shaw’s debut album as a solo vocal artist.
