Ecstatic Music Festival: wild Up, Zola Jesus & William Brittelle

  • Merkin Hall New York City United States (map)

Zola Jesus brings her unmistakably powerful, Gothic-electronic songwriting into dialogue with William Brittelle’s "silo-bombing music that is at once free-ranging, formally adventurous, unconventionally beautiful, and a joyful thrill to experience” (The Nation), in a special collaboration with the "raucous, grungy, irresistibly exuberant” (New York Times) chamber orchestra, wild Up. The program includes string arrangements of three Zola Jesus songs; "Dido's Lament Revisited," a re-imagining of "Dido's Lament" by Henry Purcell from his opera "Dido & Aeneas"; and the premiere of Brittelle's "Alive in the Electric Snow Dream" - five vignettes about the apocalypse.
