Listening Lab - Feb 2020

Updated: Nov 3, 2020

Waaaaaaay back in February, before COVID-19 changed the landscape, I starting hosting "Listening Labs" at the Hudson Valley Performing Arts Laboratory. The idea was to get together with others and hear some pieces by contemporary composers. My goal was to explore what new music is, introduce people to things they may not have heard before, and have a discussion. A big part was also to just listen for a bit, uninterrupted by other distractions. I'm hoping that they will continue once we can safely gather again.

Listening Lab; New Music

Presented by Eve Joslyn Madalengoitia

at the Hudson Valley Performing Arts Lab

Each of the links will take you to the video or audio of the piece played, and can also lead you to more info about the artist, performer and work. In some cases you will see the entire album (play more music!) or the artist’s profile on Bandcamp or Soundcloud. All of these are ways to hear more from the artist or record label, stream music, and purchase pieces to support the artists. 

Here’s a link to the pop-up concert that I mentioned for this Saturday in Beacon:
