Join us for the next installment of the monthly series Musical Ecologies with multi-instrumentalist, singer, composer and instrument designer Mark Stewart. The evening will begin with a conversation hosted by series curator Dan Joseph, and a reception will follow.
Musical Ecologies is a monthly symposium on music and sound held every 2nd Thursday (except where noted) at the Old Stone House in Park Slope, Brooklyn. Curated and hosted by composer Dan Joseph, each event typically focuses on a single artist who presents a work or project either in the form of a talk or lecture, a multimedia presentation, a performance, or combination thereof. Each presentation is preceded by a 30-minute conversation with the curator and audience.
