"Rebel Composers on a Rock Tour of Sorts"
The New York Times, July 4, 2007
An article about The End of New Music, a short documentary about a November 2005 tour of rock clubs and alternative spaces undertaken by two groups, Now Ensemble and Newspeak, under the umbrella of the composers' collective Free Speech Zone: Missy Mazzoli, Judd Greenstein and David T. Little (from left in photo). The film, by Stephen S. Taylor, depicts the ins and outs of the road trip, and delves into the concept of composers asserting control over the means and manner by which their music is presented to its audience.
The film will be screened tonight at 7pm at Anthology Film Archives in Greenwich Village. Future screenings are currently in planning stages. You can see clips from the film here (and also on YouTube), and order a DVD copy here. You can also visit the composers' websites to hear more of their music: here's Missy, here's Judd and here's David.
Happy Fourth of July!
