ShapeShifter + (plus) presents NWEAMO NYC (New West Emerging Arts and Music Organization)

NWEAMO is a San Diego-based support and service organization for artists of all disciplines, dedicated to promoting cross cultural collaboration & cultivating a central place for artists as the barometers, periscopes, harbingers and mine canaries of a healthy functioning culture.  Since 1998, NWEAMO has mounted an annual festival.  Under the auspices of ShapeShifter Plus, we are privileged to bring the NWEAMO Festival to Brooklyn.

This is a rare opportunity to hear San Diego-based virtuoso beyond-genre ensemble SWARMIUS. Since their 2006 debut, SWARMIUS has performed in venues ranging from concert halls to raves, fluidly blending electronics and virtuosic acoustic performance.

Comprised of SAXIMUS (Todd Rewoldt, alto sax), Schrodinger’s Sax (Michael Couper, soprano sax), Augustus Marimbus (Andrew Kreysa, Vibes) & Jozefius Rattus (Joseph Martin Waters, composer & laptop), each performer in SWARMIUS is a world class virtuoso soloist, and the multi-genre-leaping repertoire is a thrill course of gravity-defying pyrotechnics.  They will be joined on a few pieces by NYC-based pianist Geoffrey Burleson.

This is post modern, post minimal populist work building on Gershwin, Copland and Bernstein, with diverse influences such as trance, hip-hop, Gypsy, Santeria, house, jazz, Kelzmer, western classical and more.  Fun & fantastic.

SWARMIUS Will be joined by the percussion/electronic/vocal performance artist duo Bradford Reed & Jane LeCroy.  Reed is an internationally renowned percussionist, famous for creating his own musical instruments, and combining these with electronics. Jane LeCroy is a performance artist/vocalist whose witty and searching texts explore the back alleys of our current states.
