Make Music Winter Dec. 21, 2011 – Tilted Axes: Music for Mobile Electric Guitars

For the 1st annual Make Music Winter, notorious composer and producer Patrick Grant creates and leads a “precession” of over a dozen electric guitarists playing through Danelectro Honeytone mini-amps through the East Village, around Union Square, and back.

We are very happy to have NYC’s Rivington Guitars as a sponsor and the starting point for the precession and St. Mark’s Church-in-the-Bowery as another sponsor and as our final destination.

The public is invited to march along and bring light hand percussion to join in if they wish.

The result will be a moving, polyphonic sound cloud layered in compelling, electric rhythms all in honor of this season’s axial tilt.

The precession will begin at 6:30 PM at Rivington Guitars, 73 East 4th Street, between 2nd Ave. & Bowery, and will end at 7:30 PM at St. Mark’s Church-in-the-Bowery, 131 E 10th Street, NW corner of 2nd Ave.

Tilted Axes guitarists include: Cristian Amigo, Angela Babin, Alexander Baxter, Dan Cooper, Glenn Cornett, Nick Didkovsky, Toby Driver, Kurt Gottschalk, Randolph A. Hudson III, Taylor Levine, Joshua Lopes, James Moore, Gene Pritsker, Larry Simon, Geremy Schulick, and Patrick Grant.

More information and bios for all the participating guitarists can be found at the Make Music Winter 2011 website.
