Judd Greenstein’s Work in Brooklyn

Monday, February 27th, 2012

Members of the Brooklyn Philharmonic will be performing Judd’s Be There as a part of their Chamber Concert series. The concert explores Brooklyn’s development over the past 200 years, from a bedroom community to a major city of its own. Music will include repertoire by great Brooklyn composers such as Gershwin and Copland (who was born and raised in Prospect Heights), as well as Judd Greenstein, and other composers living in the Borough today.

Ecstatic Music Festival to Feature Judd Greenstein

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012

On Saturday, Six Points Fellow Judd Greenstein, curator for the Ecstatic Music Festival, will have his music performed by the polyglot vocal octet Roomful of Teeth. They will also be presenting a new collaboration with Glasser (Cameron Mesirow), praised for her “beautiful songs, both sweet and abstract, deeply felt and anodyne,” (NY Times) and other selections from their ever-growing catalogue of dynamic repertoire.

The second-annual Ecstatic Music Festival will feature more than 150 performers and composers from different musical backgrounds, who are re-defining music today. In 11 collaborative concerts – all with first performances of new works – the festival will put its finger on the pulse of contemporary “post-classical” music.

Oded Hirsch New York Solo Debut

Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012

Six Points Fellow Oded Hirsch is making his New York solo exhibition debut at the Thierry Goldberg Gallery. Oded works primarily in video and photography, and creates surreal mechanisms that consist of an independent set of rules and logic. His exhibition, ‘Nothing New,’ will feature large-scale photographs and many recent video works. The titular piece, ‘Nothing New,’ is an epic video made with the help of hundreds of kibbutz members, exploring biblical narratives while reconstructing the pioneering spirit of the Zionist movement.

Opening night is Sunday, March 4th 6-8pm, and the show will run through April 15th.
