The Bang on a Can Music Series, now in its fifth year at the Noguchi Museum, continues with a concert featuring bassist Florent Ghys. The program will feature a set of intimate, pop-laced tunes from Ghys’ new Cantaloupe Music album Television – an epic foray into classical forms, musique concrete, samples, and sci-fi.
Florent Ghys is a composer and double bass player from Bordeaux, France, based in Princeton, NJ. His music has been described as “thrilling breed of post-minimal chamber music” (Time Out NYC) and “highly contrapuntal showcasing intelligent multi-tracking and inventive use of sampled speech” (WQXR). Journalist John Schaefer says: “Composer and bassist Florent Ghys writes pieces that blend elements of minimalism, pop music and a dose of extravagant wit”.
Free with regular admission to the museum ($10 adults, $5 students and seniors).
