22 / 23 SEASON

For Longy’s 2022–2023 event season, we invite you to leave all preconceptions at home.

Musical experiences can have any starting point. Whether born of complex ideas, emotional impulses, or spontaneous inspiration, every music maker begins wherever they are—which is exactly where they need to be.

Just as there’s no right way, no single starting line for becoming a musician, composer, or performer, there’s no one correct entry point for us as the audience. There’s no required reading for experiencing a piece of music, no prerequisite understanding or context to bring with you to a musical experience. You come to it from wherever you are.

In relinquishing our ideas of what a musical experience should be, we open ourselves to receiving and internalizing music in a way that is unique and true to each of us.

Every artist, composer, and musician represented in this season’s program took a different path to arrive at Longy, detours and scenic routes included. We hope the stories on our stages this year inspire you to begin your own new journey, no matter where you start. Allow yourself to begin wherever you are.

When there’s no set path to follow, you become free to begin anywhere.

5.7.19 A Post-modern-day Pack of Promtheuses: Longy’s Electronic Music Ensemble

Tuesday • May 7, 2019   |   7:30 pm

A Post-modern-day Pack of Promtheuses, Longy’s EME crackles, pops and sizzles with electro-chemical energies descendant from the heavens. Or, perhaps it’s that in reverse, the energy is just so high, the voltage is that far off the charts.

Sonically, the Group of course leans toward the noisy, but also dabbles in the melodious, the funky, the jazzy, and the downright tonal. Between the members, communications are smooth and effortless, always changing, challenging and channeling—leading minds and ears in every possible direction. They play for themselves, but also collectively for their audiences. Known far and wide.
