Metropolis Ensemble Presents
An Album Release Party and Electro-Acoustic Mini-Festival
Co-presented by Nonesuch and New Amsterdam Records, withMetropolis Ensemble, Public Records and William Brittelle
Forbidden Colors is a walk-about concert and listening party in the style of a roving electro-acoustic music mini-festival.
Featuring performances and hard-wired installations hand-crafted to take advantage of the "profoundly high-fidelity" (New York Times) custom-built sound system at Gowanus’ newest venue, Public Records, the event is named for a piece on Spiritual America, the new album written by William Brittelle (featuring Metropolis Ensemble, Wye Oak, and Brooklyn Youth Chorus and released in a special partnership with Nonesuch and New Amsterdam Records.)
In celebration of the release, the music and sound-art performed will be inspired by the mosaic of sonic worlds found on this large-scale album and work, selections will be played between live performances, and attendees will receive a complimentary copy of the album.
