Reminder: Ecstatic Music Festival

Emf_logoA quick reminder that the inaugural Ecstatic Music Festival is taking place all this week at Merkin Concert Hall, with events that have already included Monday's 7 1/2 hour Marathon and last night's collaboration between Nico Muhly, Valgeir Sigurðsson and the Chiara String Quartet.

Tonight's show might be the most radical of the bunch, featuring So Percussion performing (and collaborating) with Dan Deacon. Hard to tell what to expect, but according to So's Eric Beach, "This might be the craziest thing we've ever done." See below for a video that tells the story.

More on all of these concerts - as well as an interview with festival curator Judd Greenstein - soon to come.
