Cellist Nick Photinos is a founding member and co-Artistic Director of the four-time Grammy Award-winning chamber music ensemble Eighth Blackbird. As a solo artist, he has toured with Björk, recorded with Wilco, and regularly performs at the Bang on a Can Festival in New York. Photinos will perform music from his debut album Petits Artéfacts, featuring some of the most acclaimed names in new music such as David Lang, Andrew Norman, Jacob TV and Bryce Dessner, as well as works by a newer generation of groundbreaking composers. The show will also include a rare performance of Steve Reich’s classic 2003 work Cello Counterpoint for amplified cello and pre-recorded audio.
