Richard Carrick Named 2015 Guggenheim Fellow

Richard Carrick has been named a 2015 Guggenheim Fellow in Music Composition, joining the historic ranks of fellow composers such as Aaron Copland, George Antheil, and countless other American composers throughout the years. Carrick has been hard at work in the past year, releasing a new album on New World Records entitled "Cycles of Evolution", which features instrumentalists from a who's who of contemporary music ensembles in New York: the New York Philharmonic, Either/Or, Hotel Elefant, the String Orchestra of Brooklyn, and the Toomai String Quartet. The album features several works available through PSNY, including Sub-merge and Adagios, in an arrangement for string orchestra. Check out the String Orchestra of Brooklyn performing Adagios live at St. Ann's Church: 

Richard Carrick, Uptown & Downtown

Who says that the Uptown/Downtown divide still exists? Richard Carrick's music might be proof that the entire island of Manhattan (and Brooklyn, too) are truly open territory for new music. This week, on January 29th, Carrick will see his string quintet, Adagios, performed by the Toomai String Quintet at Spectrum NYC, a biotech office-by-day, new music space-by-night, on the Lower East Side. Carrick is also curating a series at Spectrum called Friday Night LOUD, for "full-volume contemporary music", which kicks off with virtuoso electric guitarist Dan Lippel on February 6th. 

Taking the F train uptown will get you to closer to the West End Theater, where Catherine Tharin and three other contemporary dancers have created choreography set to Carrick's Stone Guitars. Their performance will run from February 5th-8th. 

Check out Tharin's choreography below!
