Broadcloth makes it to The Stone in Alphabet City, NYC

My Cello teacher’s trio,Broadcloth, has made it to “The Stone” described by many as “ A not for profit space for the Experimental and Avant-Garde”. Its location in Alphabet city talks a ton about its vitality and dedication to up and new musicians.

Broadcloth is:

Anne Rhodes on Voice,
Nathan Bontrager on Cello and
Adam Matlock on Accordion/Recorders

The trio played a set of 5 pieces of their free improv music to the Big Apple crowd. They were accompanied towards the end by the remarkable sound of the Stone’s heater!

1- Free Improv piece

2- Windows and Walls

3- Introductus

4-In Stitches

5- Free Improv finale

The following is a playlist that has all the pieces in order instead of navigating through individual clips:

By Kinan Faham

"the Silent Camera" was conceived in 2009 and was inspired by the music of Arvo Part especially his piece "Silentium". I perceive the modern world as oscillating between two extremes that are analogous to two of Arvo Part's pieces: "Perpetuum Mobile" represents the hustle and bustle of everyday life, the sea of people surrounding you, the noise in the streets, the deadlines, the challenges and the lessons to learn, the new technologies and risks facing our civilization, the musical pieces you learn [or fail to master],.. etc. "Silentium" represents the resolution of every musical note, every spoken word and every movement of your day. It is the moment that you are most likely to remember after the day's noise has settled and its turbulence has subsided. It is the moment that we all crave and the moment that will allow us to persist to the next day when the Perpetuum Mobile cycle starts again.
