James Corrigan Evening Of Eno
Saturday September 25, 7pm
Violin, Flute, Trumpet, Upright Bass, Electric Piano, Guitar
On the recent birth of his daughter, composer James Corrigan has been playing her Brian Eno’s Discreet Music during her bedtime ritual. Having listened to it repeated times, he kept thinking about ways it could be reimagined for different instruments and played live. For this performance at Russell Janis, the players will be inside and the audience seated on folding chairs outside. The space will be lit, with the players and audience meditating on the music in the evening light.

Margaret Lanzetta Prints and Ceramics
In her series Royal Flush, Margaret Lanzetta created ceramic crowns working “with a black porcelain clay body for its own palimpsest of regal symbolism. To move beyond literal renditions of opulent jewels and precious metals, and to underscore their nefarious narratives, the crowns are all black and rendered on a larger-than-life scale.” In a continuation this fall, Margaret will be creating unique prints using this subject matter at Russell Janis concluding with an exhibition of the prints and her ceramics.
