Brandon Wong, Nick Gigante, and Nicholas V. Hall perform "construct (v.)" by Sebastian Zel on a program of new music based in NYC.
Pulsing & Shaking is a music festival that celebrates New Music created in New York. The festival—taking place over the course of two days at New York University—creates a space for composers and performers to present music in context. Foundational works of the past few decades are programmed alongside music hot off the printing press, in an effort to present a cross-generational picture of the incredibly rich history of music-making in our city. Eschewing labels and genres, Pulsing & Shaking is about music that lives and breathes New York, capturing the many energies and landscapes contained within. It’s not music about New York, so much as music indebted to New York.
