March for Science NYC to Announce a Change of Plans for April 19th

Tilted M4S Canceled

As most of you know, NYC is banning gatherings of above 10 people in response to COVID-19. The March for Science NYC is currently putting together contingency plans for a virtual Day of Action on April 19th.

Details to come from the M4S organizers when they are formed. If it is possible and practical, I look forward to making a musical contribution of some sort in support of the event and the fine organizations involved. For now, the priority is everyone’s health.

This post is for electric guitarists that have expressed an interest in Tilted Axes and How It Works.

The focus of these workshops will be to:

2. Incorporate movement into playing. We will be working with guest choreographers. 

3. Develop performers for a current Tilt Core for Storyscapes, The Mars Project, and other multidisciplinary work.

Workshops will take place at the Alchemical Studios, 104 W 14th St., studio# TBA, on the following Wednesday nights, 7:00-10:00pm, dates are below.

NYU Awards Funding to Composer Patrick Grant for Tilted Axes Projects

NYU_award

I am happy to find out that I received a 2019-2020 cash award from NYU Tisch School of the Arts. The award, from the Adjunct Professional Development Fund, is to further develop my work with mobile electric guitar ensembles in composition, performance, and public engagement. As a medium, the 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 creating music together and moving it out into the world. Thank you, NYU!Patrick Grant
