Ecstatic Music Festival: Helado Negro & thingNY

  • Merkin Concert Hall 129 W 67th St New York, NY, 10023 United States

Presented by Kaufman Music Center at Merkin Concert Hall

Helado Negro, the one-person band masterminded by Roberto Carlos Lange, creates a perfect equilibrium of intricate electronic music with shades of kraut rock bathed in mesmerizing rhythms. Together with the theatrically-charged, experimental collective thingNY, he will re-develop his 2013 piece “Brain Finger Composition,” a performance of his songs built on spontaneous direction and interaction between thingNY and Roberto as he controls the players via yarn tethering them to his fingers. thingNY will also perform a set of text-pieces, including a preview of their upcoming opera “This takes place close by.”
