300 Pompton Road, Wayne, NJ, FREE

Third annual festival produced by Composers Concordance (“enterprising new music organization” - NYTimes) has an innovative approach: each concert focuses on a specific timbre.
The festival opener, entitled 'ArtBeat' features percussion instruments in a program with 4-time Grammy winner Glen Velez, as well as the acclaimed Lukas Ligeti and Peter Jarvis. It will held at DiMenna Center on December 1st at 3pm, followed by a reception. The repeat of the program at William Paterson University on December 2nd will include a pre-concert lecture demonstration on frame-drumming and overtone singing by Glen Velez.
In addition to the mono-timbral nature of each concert on the festival, a few of them, including ArtBeat have a collaborative-interdisciplinary nature.
ArtBeat includes original sculpture-percussion by Gorazd Poposki made specifically for this event. 
Each percussionist will present a 20 - 25 minute solo set of their own repertoire. The percussionists will then join together to perform a suite written for them by Dan Cooper, Partick Grant, Milica Paranosic, Gene Pritsker and Zach Seely, featuring the sculpture-percussion instruments.
The instruments will be on the display at Gallery MC (, at 549 West 52nd Street, between 10th and 11th Avenues in NYC), November 16th - 31st.
