The Electro-Music Chamber Orchestra Comes to Princeton

Saturday, December 15, 2007
David Sarnoff Library Auditorium
7:30 PM
201 Washington Road
Princeton, New Jersey

Admission: $10 per person at the door
For information: 609-734-2636

It’s the time of year when the streets and houses glow and twinkle with
festive lights. Everything’s wired and bright, including the Electro-
Music Chamber Orchestra, the sonic ensemble that’s more plugged in than
a city block.

The Electro-Music Chamber Orchestra brings its arsenal of synthesizers,
keyboards and bizarre machinery to the David Sarnoff Library Auditorium
On Saturday, December 15th for an evening of truly electrifying and
sonorous musical mischief. Doors open at 7:00 PM for this rare event,
with refreshments on hand provided by Grovers Mill Coffee and
McCaffrey's bakery, thanks in part to the support of the Princeton
ACM/IEEE-CS under the initiative of Dr. Rebecca Mercuri. Admission is
$10.00 for the general public; for more information, please call

On the roster for the orchestra’s notorious ever changing, ever
evolving membership are Howard Moscovitz, Greg Waltzer and Bill Fox. As
a trio in their own right, they’re known as Xeroid Entity, creators of
rhythmic and ambient otherworldly soundscapes.

Joining them will be special guests Brainstatik, featuring Robert
Burger, Ken Palmer, Mike Hunter, Jim Silvestri and Glenn Robitaille.
Combining ambient, world, progressive rock, and space music,
Brainstatik takes audiences on uncharted improvisational journeys,
shifting and mixing genres within each piece.

Any self-respecting electronic chamber orchestra would be incomplete
without the granddaddy of all electronic instruments: the theremin (the
only instrument that’s played without being touched). Thereminist Kip
Rosser will be on hand to weave the theremin’s haunting and beautiful
voices into the mix.

Taking the stage first will be Brainstatik, each member a certified
electronic gear junkie. Guitars can sound like drums, keyboards can
imitate guitars and drums can play keyboards. The resulting performance
often sounds rehearsed and composed, but in reality it all just happens
in the moment,. Brainstatik thrives on taking their music right to the
edge every time they perform.

During the second set of the evening, Moscovitz, Waltzer, Fox and
Rosser will complete the ensemble. The fully formed Electro-Music
Chamber Orchestra will perform a collaborative exploration of the vast
territories of harmony, rhythm, melody and silence. Think Vangelis
meets Sci-Fi with a dash of Brian Eno.

The evening will be set against the stunning visual backdrops of video
artist Hong Waltzer, who will bridge sight and sound by creating her
fluid and colorful “living paintings” that respond to the music in real
time, Expand your ears, eyes, mind, and your definition of music get
really wired on the sight and sounds of the Electro-Music Chamber


My next stint on the AM/FM Show will be Saturday, December 22 at 6:00
am. I will continue the special on E-dition Electronic Music
Magazine's sampler CDs. I will continue with the last issue so this
special is drawing to a close soon. What's next? ;-)

Tune in to WMUH Allentown at 91.7 FM, broadcasting from the campus of
Muhlenberg College. I alternate hosting the show with Bruce. When I
am at the helm, the show features electronic, ambient, and spacemusic
at the beginning, an eclectic mix of genres in the middle, and winds
up with Progressive Rock. WMUH's web site is
