Parakeet at Chand Baori.
The first American performance of Kaikhosru Sorabji's gigantic Organ Symphony No. 2 — or, indeed, of any of Sorabji's organ music — will take place at the University of Iowa School of Music on Feb. 10. Kevin Bowyer, Soraji's chief organ champion, will undertake the eight-hour marathon. The event helps to inaugurate Iowa's new Voxman Music Building, and serves to introduce the hall's concert organ.... Michael Pisaro will be the featured artist at the Co-incidence Residency in Somerville MA, a week-long gathering of experimental artists, from Jan. 24 to Jan. 30.... My New Yorker colleague Russell Platt has written a string quartet entitled Mountain Interval.... As I noted in my Julius Eastman column, Monday Evening Concerts will present an all-Eastman evening on Monday, Jan. 23. Note also an Eastman tribute at the Burchfield Penney Art Center in Buffalo, NY, on Feb. 10.... Kate Soper's latest theatre piece, Ipsa Dixit, will be performed at Dixon Place in NYC on Feb. 3 and 4, having been seen at EMPAC in December.
