by Allan Appel | May 22, 2015 2:31 pm

Yale University Art Gallery As the world frets about whether ancient sculptures will survive the sledgehammers of the newly arrived conquerors of Palmyra, Syria, a sense of what’s at stake can be found here in New Haven.

“Next Stage” Takes The Stage

by Brian Slattery | May 22, 2015 1:38 pm

Brian Slattery Photo Wearing a hard hat because the crew was still assembling the set, Sound Resident Lindsay Wagner demonstrated some of the sound design for the Long Wharf’s staging this weekend of The Boy at the Edge of Everything, by Finegan Kruckemeyer. She looked toward the stage, where one crew member was up on a ladder that reached to the high ceiling of Long Wharf’s Stage II, adjusting a light. Another crew member was below him, checking his work.

“Sound!” Wagner called.

Improvised Chamber Music Reshapes Never Ending Books

by Adam Matlock | May 22, 2015 10:30 am | Comments (1)

Adam Matlock photo “We’re going to make it what we we want it to be,” said guitarist Trevor Babb of the Aprés-Garde Ensemble. He was introducing “Book,” a composition by Will Redman that offered musicians dozens of performance possibilities by allowing them to play any of the work’s 98 pages in any sequence or layering.

But at last Saturday’s installment of the ongoing Uncertainty Music Series — held at Never Ending Books, its long-time primary residence — Babb could have been describing a lot about the performances by the Aprés-Garde Ensemble and Carte Noire, both of which let the musicians’ desires shape the possibilities of a performance of chamber music.

Tim Berne Sells More Than Snake Oil At Firehouse 12

by Adam Matlock | May 21, 2015 2:22 pm

Adam Matlock Photo For the leader of a band named Snakeoil, alto saxophonist Tim Berne didn’t give off much of a salesman vibe. His introductions for each composition, over two sets at Firehouse 12 last Friday, were infused with wry humor, and while he did try to pitch T-shirts for his record label to the audience (“the last nine in existence”) you didn’t get the impression he was trying to push something on you. As he and pianist Matt Mitchell, his longtime collaborator, shot ideas back and forth with modifications, feints, and additions, it was obvious that this was a negotiation — and a fascinating one — to watch and to hear.

Great Balls Of Fire

by Brian Slattery | May 20, 2015 12:57 pm

New Haven’s glorious fetish for 1950s rock ‘n’ roll (thank you, Jon Stone) was in full force at Cafe Nine Monday night.

There was that now-classic sound that Elvis, Scotty Moore, and Bill Black made at Sun Studios in Memphis in 1954 and 1955. But there was also the ranging spirit of that era, in which, for an exhilarating few years, the conventions of rock ‘n’ roll still hadn’t been nailed down and seemingly anything was all right, as long as you could dance to it.

Blue Door Opens New Artistic Worlds

by Lucy Gellman | May 19, 2015 3:34 pm

Victor Agran Giovanni Battista Piranesi’s winding and cavernous Carceri, reimagined and rendered in bright watercolor for the year 2015. The late New Haven Coliseum, captured gracefully in stages of its demolition. Floating, torso-less anuses blooming into dahlias. A fantasy plane of strings and one blown-up, unattached molar, suspended in a universe that is not quite of this world or the next.
