About Soft Series

Soft Series is a concert series dedicated to presenting soft premieres of new music in an intimate environment with lively pre- and post-concert conversation. We have hosted a performance of Eve Beglarian’s I am lost by streams that featured trombonist Will Lang playing alongside an in-progress film by Caleb Kenna and Rohan Sen; the first ever live animation performance by artist Nicole Antebi; an evening of art songs composed for The Bowers-Fader Duo, which became a program that the duo performed again on multiple occasions; and a workshop performance of Kenneth Gaburo’s Maledetto by thingNY & Varispeed, which was further developed for a performance at Roulette in NYC. Additionally, Soft Series has featured the Ensemble of Irreproducible Outcomes, Elizabeth A Baker, violin duo Miolina (Lynn Bechtold and Mioi Takeda), cellist Craig Hultgren, and the soft premiere of l’Artiste ordinaire’s Photon Ecstasy. All of the concerts take place in Grey’s loft apartment in the NoMad neighborhood of New York, creating an accessible setting for the audience to interact with the musicians.
