Jonny Greenwood, Beirut, Final Fantasy Do Wordless

by Jonathan on May 11, 2007

On a diligent quest to marry the contemporary classical and indie rock worlds– or at least let them mingle for a few magical nights a season– the New York City-based Wordless Music Series returns this fall with another generous helping of eclectic aural delights, sure to enchant folks from the highbrow to the underground.

Set for the Series’ 2007/08 season are Radiohead’s Jonny Greenwood– who’ll oversee a performance of his British Composer Award-winning composition Popcorn Superhet Receiver– along with Beirut, Final Fantasy, Do Make Say Think, and the U.S. debut of indie-friendly modern composer Max Richter.

Other series highlights include Icelandic dream-weavers Múm, ambient loop mistress Colleen, string savant and indie arranger of choice Nico Muhly, experimental electronic artist Jan Jelinek, and Australian avant-jazz trio Triosk. The complete schedule for the new season (with dates and venues) is still shaping up, but scope the events confirmed thus far below, and bookmark the Wordless website for updates.
