The Beatle Boys 6.19.19

Posted by on Jun 20, 2019

The Beatles live on in a variety of ways today- even in a band led by two kids. The Beatle Boys was formed when Hudson Tartak and his Mom were walking down S. Congress Avenue and stumbled upon Chris Sebrian, a fellow Beatles lover busking on the streets. The two boys, now 13 and 14, joined forces with Chris’s guitar teacher Cid Sanchez and have been playing gigs together covering classics from the 50s and 60s ever since.

If you like what you hear you can support The Beatle Boys and the Music Moves Mountains Foundation next Sunday, June 30th as they play a sensory-friendly concert with Akin Francis opening at the Austin History Center from 2-4pm. A part of their series “All Abilities Rock,” the Music Moves Mountains Foundation aims to offer better access to those in need of music therapy, education, and community outreach.

Silent Films Out Loud: Buster Keaton

Posted by on Jun 12, 2019

Taking on this season of summer blockbusters with a “Buster” of their own, Silent Films Out Loud returns for a third time to pair the original scores of Austin composers Jackie Myers, David Biller and Dave Madden with the short films of Buster Keaton. The pioneering pictures include 1920’s Neighbors and two releases from 1921 – The Goat and The High Sign – enhanced by a live orchestra to accentuate each action, sync with every stunt, and get in on each gag. Local orchestra Density512 is on board once again to complement the cinematic spectacle and give star billing alongside Keaton to the varied styles and sounds of each composer.

Density512 presents: Evan Lawson’s Orpheus

Posted by on Jun 6, 2019

In collaboration with prismatx ensemble Monteverdi. Lully. Telemann. Rameau. Gluck. Haydn. Offenbach. Stravinsky. Glass. The tragic love story of Orpheus and Eurydice has been celebrated by musicians for as long as we have had means to do so. But what about Orpheus’s affair with fellow argonaut, Caläis? In a preview of our upcoming prismatx series (creating music inspired by art), Density512 presents Evan Lawson’s Orpheus, a new opera inspired by this little-known love triangle and a reaction to the censorship of queer elements in Greek mythology.
