Chashama and Art of Franza, Inc. present BOBBY PREVITE:DIORAMA, a solo drum concert performed for one listener at a time at Chashama 266, an empty storefront in midtown Manhattan.
In Previteʼs DIORAMA, each listener enters a small room and sits directly behind the drum set. Unaware of their identity, Previte plays an improvised piece for his solo audience member. The strange, heightened intimacy of the interaction and the public presence of the space create a concert of extremes and oppositions.
Drummer and prolific composer Previte first created DIORAMA in March of 2010 as part of the Lower Manhattan Cultural Program's Swing Space program, where it was performed on the 31st floor of a landmark Wall Street building. He now brings it to a new site-specific location at Chashama 266 for the January 2012 installment.
"Not unlike a sex scene in a Milan Kundera novel...a totally weird experience." -- Trevor Hunter, New Music Box
