thingNY – minis/Trajectories
released September 20th, 2016
The composer-performers of thingNY have worked for ten years as an ensemble to carefully craft a unique style of energetic, poetic music, performed by an inimitable group of musicians. This fall, thingNY releases its second album: minis/Trajectories: the music of Paul Pinto and Erin Rogers.
minis/Trajectories will be available digitally and as a limited “artist’s edition” 12-inch 180 gram vinyl containing beautifully engraved 12×12 scores of the recorded works.
Trajectories is Erin Rogers’s multi-movement work for thingNY’s instruments, voices and ability to improvise, based on some of life’s trajectories (I. Money, II. Action, III. Love, IV. Family). Also on the record, a 2009 work Chronolinea, a whispering/screaming concertino for vocalist and ensemble. The minis are part of thingNY founder Paul Pinto’s ongoing series of short theatrical, stream-of-conscious compositions blending chamber music, storytelling, and poetry.
