Sound Wired Concerts presents: Alcove Music - new music for guitar, voice and winds
The Gillespie Chamber Quartet is teaming up with guitarist James Baur and baritone Michael Thoms to premiere new music by the American Prize 3rd place composer, Daniel McCarthy; NYC composer and assistant producer for Q2 of WQXR, Hannis Brown and local composer/saxophonist, Amos Gillespie. Composers of contrasting style and complexity, this program is sure to reach a wide range of emotional landscapes.

U.S.A. Today describes the music of Daniel McCarthy as "intriguing, inviting, shimmering..." while The Cleveland Plain Dealer has written that his music is "Colorful, infectious and touching--."  His music has been  described as "Contemporary in the best sense of the word" by The Music Connoisseur magazine, and 21st Century Music Magazine proclaims his music to be "Sassy, foreboding, refreshing and kicky--it's called style."

"If rapid changes in time, melody, and emotion are cool, then call Hannis Brown the bi-polar Miles Davis. Oh Ah Ee is a disjointed, bizarre, delightfully-disorienting listen. Spiraling string arrangements, eerie Thom Yorke-ish moans, free jazz freak outs, anxiety ridden fits of electronic noise, and up-right bass solos; all slathered onto a jangly avant-garde rhythm section  yes please. "- Two.One.Five Magazine.

"Amos' music was Gentle, sensitive, conscious of the narrative, beautiful. The underlying emotion of the film is supposed to be a deep, quiet longing, and I think that as a composer he understood that very well." - Michael Dudok de Wit (response to the re-score of his Oscar winning film "Father Daughter")
