PG Receives NYU Award for Tilted Axes

“I am honored to find out today that I received a 2020-2021 cash award from NYU Tisch School of the Arts. The award, from the Adjunct Professional Development Grant Award Fund, is to further develop my work via Remote Recording Workshops in the composition, performance, and public engagement of our mobile electric guitar project Tilted Axes for its 10th anniversary.

The created work will be used to address community concerns (i.e. the use of public spaces), global concerns (i.e. climate change and renewable energy), and future concerns (i.e. space exploration and unforeseen discoveries). Above all, it’s about connecting as humans, creating music together, and moving it out into the world.”

Combining the energy of rock, the creative discipline of theater, and the experimental spirit of the NYC arts scene, Tilted Axes is both a processional event, and an ensemble of mobile electric guitarists created by Patrick Grant.

A classically trained post-rocker with a background in theatre, Patrick created Tilted Axes as a way of untethering the electric guitar from stage amps. This allows Tilted Axes to bring live music to our audiences, instead of the other way around. Tilted Axes is also a continuing expression of Patrick’s life-long interest in science and technology.

Tilted Axes’ free public performances feature music composed by Patrick, with the guitarists using portable amplifiers strapped to their sides as they walk through the streets. The procession of musicians moves along pre-planned routes in select areas, usually in honor of an event, a landmark, or an organization unique to that community.

Tilted Axes has had multiple incarnations in the USA, Europe, and South America. The ensemble performs during the annual Make Music New York celebrations for both the summer and winter solstices, in neighborhoods like the East Village, Harlem and Bushwick.

Tilted Axes has a frequent presence in Detroit as part of the city-wide cultural events Concert of Colors and the March du Nain Rouge, and at venues like the Detroit Institute of Arts, The Michigan Science Center, and Third Man Records.

The electric guitars of Tilted Axes have echoed through the streets of Sao Paulo Brazil and Düsseldorf Germany, in collaboration with local arts groups and musicians who embody the spirit and culture of their cities.

When the pandemic hit, Tilted Axes, like so many of their fellow artists, was hit hard. Unable to perform for the public, our group has had to adapt. But constant transformation is part of Patrick’s ethos as an artist. Tilted Axes was able to pull together international collaborations in the virtual sense, such as its appearance in the online celebrations of Earth Day 2020.

Tilted Axes created an audio-visual exploration on the lack of social touch during lockdown called “Touchy Subjects”, with musical tracks and home video collected from dozens of musicians. And another digital collaboration to mark International Strange Music Day is bringing together the far flung members of the group for a musical and visual meditation on the meaning of “strange” – in a year that almost defies the definition of the word.

Tilted Axes: Music for Mobile Electric Guitars is working on more projects in 2020, finding new ways to bring their potent and pertinent music to the public, with an element of joyous wonder. But the ensemble needs your help to support the musicians and staff who make the project happen. Through our fiscal sponsor Fractured Atlas, you can make a tax deductible contribution to our work. Help us make sure that Tilted Axes always stays in motion.
