April 4th, 2014First Fridays Jazz Series - Dan Blake's "The Digging"

On the First Friday of each month, the All Things Project presents some of NYC's finest artists for free. This Friday, April 4, we welcome Dan Blake's "The Digging."

Featuring:

Dan Blake / sax & compositions
Dmitry Ishenko / bass
Devin Drobka / drums

Sets @ 8 & 10

Free admission!

"Dan Blake is on to something. The saxophonist has worked with such masters of the straightahead as Danilo Perez, as well as with the architect of abstraction, Anthony Braxton. It can be hard to imagine how to reconcile those extremes - and yet, in his own music, Blake has managed to pull it off." Washington City Paper

March 8th, 2014Doug Detrick's AnyWhen Ensemble - Ishmael and the Whale

Chamber-Jazz group Douglas Detrick’s AnyWhen Ensemble and actor Ren Jackson perform “Ishmael and the Whale: A collision of Moby Dick and the Book of Jonah through words and music.”

Presented by Spark and Echo Arts
sparkandecho.org

8 PM -- Admission is free!

Composer/Trumpeter/Writer Douglas Detrick brings together his chamber-jazz quintet AnyWhen Ensemble with actor Warren Jackson to take a creative yet critical look at how the story of Jonah and the Whale imbues Moby Dick with spiritual mystery and raises a simple narrative to an epic level.

Moby Dick is often thought of as the first great American novel, and the balance of Ahab’s primal motivation for revenge with high spiritual themes is a prime reason for this. Inspired by the creative radio documentary series Radio Lab, actor Warren Jackson will perform a text by Douglas Detrick that weaves together the book of Jonah with chapter 9 of Moby Dick — where Melville retells the book of Jonah — in a style that blends critical, journalistic inquiry with a healthy sense of humor and a gratifying enthusiasm for the original texts.

At this early point in the novel, the presence of this tale of humility and repentance opens the door to an underpinning of deep religious significance in every twist and turn of the plot. The accompanying music, also by Detrick and performed by him with his AnyWhen Ensemble, will support and expand on the text, helping to bridge the gap between the two original works and between ancient and contemporary audiences by calling on both composed and improvised music to bring an unexpected range of expression to this piece.

Also on the program will be movements from Detrick’s 10-movement suite The Bright and Rushing World, a piece that was commissioned by Chamber Music America and will be released on a new recording with Parma Recordings on March 24th.

"Her music leans forward at you. She has a percussive touch, graceful and sometimes aggressive, and she likes playing fast, walking or soloing or delivering a jagged ostinato.

September 5th, 2012How Do People Change

On September 5, 6:30-8 PM we begin a journey together. The book "How People Change," by Tim Lane and Paul Tripp, will be our guide.

A blurb from the back of the book speaks of the goal they have in mind: "What does it take for lasting change to take root in your life? If you've ever tried, failed, and wondered why, you need How People Change. This book explains the biblical pattern for change in a clear, practical way you can apply to the challenges of daily life. But change involves more than a biblical formula: You will see how God is at work to make you the person you were created to be. That powerful, loving , redemptive relationship is at the heart of all positive change you experience."

Copies of the book will be available for $10. If you can't afford the price, then the book will be free. We wouldn't want you to miss out on the trip.

August 31st, 2012Film Screening

November 13th, 2011International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church

This Sunday we will be joining churches across the country and around the world in observing the International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church. In the morning and evening services, the focus will be on the plight of those who suffer for the sake of Christ. This important, yearly reminder calls us to remember those who share the same faith as we and yet whose lives, families, and livelihoods are threatened because they confess Christ. To that end we are planning on altering some of what we do to give us "a feel" for what our brothers and sisters in some parts of the world must do when they gather to worship. We are also setting time aside after the morning service to pray and the time dedicated to discussion and prayer in the evening will be spent in praying for our brethren. In addition, as part of the observance, we will not be serving food after the services.

To confess Christ is a great privilege; to do so freely is a great gift.

"I called the great French violinist Jean-Luc Ponty and I said 'So, who's the new cat? Who's got the stuff? And he said 'Zach Brock.'" — Stanley Clarke, The Blue Note, NYC

"Add Brock to the small list of players finding ways to bridge the potentially hazardous chasm between the violin and jazz. Recently awarded a Carnegie Hall residency, Brock is an intriguing young artist with a bright future." — Don Heckman, Los Angeles Times

"Great jazz violinists always have been in perilously short supply, which may explain why many listeners have been investing their hopes in the work of Zach Brock. Brock has combined the best of two worlds: instrumental virtuosity and creative improvisation..." — Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune

"...on a cold night in January this reviewer decided to experience the Jamie Baum Septet at Joe's Pub in the east village. The experience was nothing short of extraordinary. Each tune was gripping, and played to perfection by the ensemble. The best compliment that can be given to such compositional creativity is that all concept of the passage of time was lost... I had been transported...for what seemed like precious few moments, but it was enough to leave me breathless and wanting more." --- All About Jazz

October 23rd, 2010A Beautiful Mind: The Ongoing Relevance of Jonathan Edwards

Two convictions undergird this free, one-day conference in NYC. First, that Jonathan Edwards (1703-1758) tends to be either unknown or at least radically misunderstood by most moderns today. Second, that he is nonetheless intensely relevant for the cultivation of serious and faithful Christian thinking in the contemporary church. We contend that this caricatured Puritan remains worth knowing with integrity and sympathy.

Seminars will focus on Edwards’ contributions to human identity and purpose in light of God’s design in creation, the integral place of the emotions in authentic spirituality, and contextualized Christian engagement with secular culture. While this conference will aim at the serious study of Edwards, it assumes no prior knowledge of his writings or life for those who attend.

Schedule
Coffee & Donuts: 9:00-9:30
Session 1: 9:30-11:00 - Glory Enlarged: God’s Trinitarian Purpose in Creation (Nick Nowalk)
Session 2: 11:15-12:45 - Holy Passions: The Role of Emotions in the Spiritual Life (Jesse Peterson)
Lunch break: 12:45-1:45 (bring your own or go to one of the many businesses in the area)
Session 3: 1:45-3:15 - Plundering the Egyptians: Edwards’ Subversive Exploitation of Modernism (Nick Nowalk & Jesse Peterson)

To register for this free conference, please email ncgv@ncgv.net

Speakers
Nick Nowalk is a Ministry Fellow at Harvard University with Christian Union. His graduate studies were done at Bethel Seminary, The Bethlehem Institute (TBI) under John Piper), and Pittsburgh Theological Seminary. While at TBI, he also taught a number of classes on the theology of Jonathan Edwards at both the undergraduate and graduate level.

Jesse Peterson is Associate Pastor of Neighborhood Church of Greenwich Village. He studied at the University of Minnesota and The Bethlehem Institute in Minneapolis before graduating from Gordon-Conwell Seminary near Boston (M.Div).

October 15th, 2010Sects, Love, and Rock & Roll

Author Joel Hartse reads from his new book Sects, Love, and Rock & Roll

Playing rock music in churches and church music in rock clubs, church camp sing-alongs gone horribly wrong, infatuation with contemporary Christian music, teenage love set to indie rock soundtracks, betrayal by Christian rock bands—Sects, Love, and Rock & Roll is a book about how listening to music makes us who we are, and it’s an exploration of the intersections between the evangelical Christian culture and the pop music scene. In these essays, Hartse, a youth group dropout turned music critic, mixes laugh-out-loud humor with thoughtful reflection to explain how his obsession with rock & roll has shaped his faith, and how living in the shadow of God and guitars can transform all of us.

Doors open at 7 PM

Live music as part of the event!

The Boston Globe calls singer-violinist Jake Armerding "the most gifted and promising songwriter to emerge from the Boston folk scene in years."

"This is organic music," the Boston singer-songwriter-violinist offers about his fifth album of originals, Her. "It's a bunch of us playing our instruments and singing, and getting taped while we're doing it. There's no pitch correction, no chemicals, no nothing." Armerding, along with some of the best players on the East Coast scene, holed up in a studio in North Reading, MA just before last Christmas, got completely snowed in, and made some beautiful, raucous, lasting music. Armerding confides, "For years I've been trying to get away from love songs -- everybody writes them, they're the easiest to write, all that stuff. But then I fell in love and got married, so it wasn't really an option." Singer and songwriter Mark Erelli, a longtime friend and colleague who contributed guitar and vocal tracks to the project, commented, "It's pretty great to listen to a whole record of love songs and not hear any of the usual love song cliches."

It was the early 1980s when Boston bluegrasser Taylor Armerding, co-founder of the band Northern Lights, started his 5-year-old son, Jake, on Suzuki violin. Jake studied classical violin into high school and absorbed bluegrass just by being around the house. At 13, he joined Northern Lights on fiddle and recorded three albums with the band during his high school and college years. He soon turned his attention to songwriting, and recorded his first CD, Caged Bird, while at Wheaton College (IL). In 2003, Nashville independent label Compass released Jake Armerding, a collection of folk-pop songs written over a year living in Music City. The Washington Post lauded Armerding's instrumental skills as "remarkable," while the Boston Globe heralded him "a master at bending boundaries ... his real achievement has been to break the conventions that define country music."

Armerding recently logged his thousandth performance. He has shared the stage with Bela Fleck, Nickel Creek, Josh Ritter, David Wilcox and Toad the Wet Sprocket.

September 24th, 2009Opening night - Blood and Fire

Sheetrock project by Rex Hausmann
Curated by Samuel W. Kho

Join us on opening night: 7 -9 PM
with dj set by Mickey House

Show runs from September 24 - October 25
Gallery hours: Wednesday - Saturday 1-6:30

Rex has worked on national projects in Georgia, Maine, Texas, New York, and California as well as international projects as far as Italy and Ireland with organizations such as Points of Light (George H. W. Bush's network for civic involvement) and The Hands On Network.

Recently graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design with a full scholarship, Rex has opened rexcontemporary in the hope of happily sharing his love for contemporary art with those who will look and listen.

Rex's Artist Statement:

My work is a collision of artifacts and events initiated by the people I meet and the things I read. The mindset and ideas of the western world from Plato’s Republic to the writings of CS Lewis are a constant fascination. By looking at the history of religion impressed against the theater of philosophy, I paint panels, and ponder. The histories of the Native American peoples and the Puritans are my present focus. The dance of the Kachina and the modest persistence of the Puritan are finding their way into my thoughts and canvases. Gauguin asked “Where do we come from? What are we? Where are we going?”. Rothko searched for the sublime. I wish to share with the world a painterly grin.

June 12th, 2009Jazz - Ben Monder

You know within about three seconds that something original is coming out of Ben Monder’s electric guitar — a whispering flow of harmonic challenges that fold backward, sideways and across dimensions like time-space origami...He’s like a magician who slows a trick down to ox-cart tempo, and you still can’t figure out how he did it.
