Ekmeles performs the opening evening of the MET Museum’s first commissioned sound installation: Oliver Beer’s Vessel Orchestra. It is both an installation work, and a playable keyboard instrument comprised of objects from the MET’s collection.
Ekmeles will perform a new work by director Jeffrey Gavett, a work by Forrest Pierce, and will perform an improvised work to transition between Oliver Beer’s installation and the live performance. They will also be joined by pianist Bruce Brubaker, who will split the set.
