Decantations: Ravi Kittappa

Composer Ravi Kittappa and pianist Karl Larson invite the public to perform the New York premiere of Decantations III, Kittappa’s piece featuring the sound of sruti boxes (easily playable Indian drone instruments).

Beginning at 3:00 pm, performers split into three groups and walk divergent paths around Astoria, playing a variety of sustaining instruments and electronic devices, while interacting with the sounds of the neighborhood. After 30 minutes everyone converges in Athens Square Park to create a large and varying drone resolving to a finish.
