If I Were in NYC...'ve heard that from me before, right? As usual, the mail brings items of note.
  • The Momenta Quartet performs a contemporary music program mostly by New Yorkers at Roulette Intermedium, 20 Greene St. between Canal and Grand, 8:30 p.m. tomorrow, Saturday, October 2, 2010. Works by Melissa Hui, Huong Ruo, Gordon Beeferman, and Philip Glass are on the program. Tickets are $15 GA / $10 seniors/students / Free to members of Roulette/Location One.
  • TRANSIT Subway Series presents a triple bill of noteworthy new music. So Percussion plays; there's the world premier of a new work by Tristan Perich; a new multimedia group called Corps Exquis makes its debut. All this on Thursday, October 14, 2010, at Galapagos Art Space, 16 Main (at Water), Brooklyn, NY.  Doors open at 7, show at 8, tickets $15 at the door or on line.
  • The Metropolis Ensemble asks "What would a house sound like if it could sing?" And the ensemble answers, it would sound like Brownstone, by composer Jakub Ciupinski, which they describe as "a site-specific electro-acoustic composition conceived for an entire historic Brooklyn 3-story brownstone." Wow. You can see and hear this work on Thursday, October 28, 2010, 7:30 p.m., at 224 Washington Street, Brooklyn, NY.
