Original Gravity -- once described as "a classical music nerd’s slightly tipsy wet dream" -- is excited to announce the program for its third season of unique music experiences.
Each show pairs local musical composition talent with specially-crafted artisanal beers -- the brewers will listen to the music of the composer(s) and craft a unique, never-before-released beer to be enjoyed at the event, for a special synaesthetic experience engaging taste and sound. This season will include four concerts held at a variety of locations, at both familiar, stalwart breweries as well as some fresh new faces.
Here are some highlights from the upcoming 3rd season:
* Musical Robots (June 17, 2016
): A battleground where man's creativity struggles against our
* Soliloquy (Fall 2016): An intimate evening of instrumental solos featuring the music of Felipe
* Illumination (Winter 2016/17): A curated show of contemporary works by local composers at the all-new Lamplighter Brewing Co. in Cambridge.
* Paula Matthusen (Spring 2017): Matthusen's works consider discrepancies in musical space – real, imagined, and remembered – in the re-imagined taproom of Idle Hands Craft Ales in Malden.
Original Gravity is also planning a special 2016 satellite event on August 11
at Rising Tide Brewing
About Original Gravity
Curated by local pianist and composer Keith Kirchoff, Original Gravity Concert Series takes modern classical music out of the concert hall and presents it in an informal, fun environment: a brewery. Committed to the music of New England composers, the Original Gravity crew collaborates with the host brewers to design a beer specifically in tune with the artist’s work, creating a blended synchronicity of sound and zymurgy.
Keith Kirchoff (Artistic Director) is a pianist, composer, and Vice President of the Society for Electro Acoustic Music in the United States (SEAMUS). Specializing in works which combine interactive electronics with solo piano, his Electro-Acoustic Piano tour has been presented in six countries. Keith is also an accomplished homebrewer and beer connoisseur, having travelled extensively in the United States and abroad in search of the perfect pint.
