Invisible Anatomy is a composer-performer ensemble that explores the human body as the most fundamental aspect of music creation and performance. Incorporating elements from classical, jazz, experimental rock, performance art and theater, Invisible Anatomy (IA) creates other-worldly performances that combine an omnivorous stylistic palate, virtuosic physicality, and dramatic visual presentation. IA’s inaugural show BODY PARTS dismembered, manipulated, and reanimated bodies in performance – creating a chattering chorus of woodblock teeth, wearing pop songs as a mask, and floating screaming eyes on TV screens. After the group’s 2015 debut concerts in New York City, they were invited to China for three shows, including a featured solo concert at the Beijing Modern Music Festival. IA’s second season opened with an intimate house concert of BODY PARTS hosted by David Lang, followed by the world premiere of Dissections at Brooklyn’s National Sawdust, which was the subject of a full-length feature in the Village Voice. The group performed Dissections twice more at Pomona College and The Blue Whale in Los Angeles, and will record their debut studio album in June 2016.
Marateck is an instrumental rock group that deals in opposites and contradictions: minimalist vs maximalist, consonant vs dissonant, mechanistic vs humanistic. The result is intense, emotional music with played with obsessive, virtuosic precision. Our new album-length collection of pieces, Time is Over, was commissioned by Roulette and the Jerome Fund for New Music, was recorded by Colin Marston in summer 2016, and will be released in early 2017.
With Jesse Kranzler, Tristan Kasten-Krause, and Mark Utley.
