Make Music New York, Winter 2013, Features Phil Kline's 'Peregrine' [SCHEDULE]

Can we get an ASCAP Adventurous Programming Award for Make Music New York? Please??

This two-day-a-year fest does Cardew and (Eli Keszler & Sō Percussion) in the summer, Phil Kline in the winter.

Again, we question the committee: What more do you need to know?

To wit, Phil Kline returns to the walking-boombox-ambient genre he made famous with #UNSILENT NIGHT, to present Peregrine, a 45-minute electronic work starting in front of the Brooklyn Academy of Music and migrating through Fort Greene, Brooklyn.

Take that, Spike Lee!

At its U.S. premiere for Make Music Winter 2011, critic David Patrick Stearns said, "people came to their windows in the Victorian-era townhouses, perhaps to make sure a flying saucer wasn't attempting to parallel park."

This year's performance is presented in partnership with BAM and the FAB Alliance.
