ARCHIPELAGO: Victoire and Arturo en el Barco
The third night of Archipelago will mark the debut of the newly reformed seven-piece electro-chamber group Arturo en el Barco, which features composer Angelica Negron. The lo-fi ensemble will premiere Negron’s Let the sun shine on me and make me feel special, a collection of six songs that, according to the composer, will “explore feelings of isolation, abandonment, longing and desperation.” November also welcomes Victoire, composer/pianist Missy Mazzoli’s genre-defying quartet, a dreamy, stirring blend of winds, strings, keyboards and lo-fi electronics. Victoire was recently called “so good; a pleasing, accessible entree into the world of pseudo-classical music” (Pitchfork), and will perform a set including tracks from their upcoming release on NewAm in 2010.
