The season finale of Chamber Cartel's Beyond the Zero collaboration with Orpheus Brewing is upon us! Chamber Cartel is proud to perform Mark Z. Danielewski's The Fifty Year Sword.
The music for this performance will come straight from five speaking voices. Caleb Herron, Natalie Kachadurian, Ed Hall, Lee Furey, and James Sanders will bring this modern day ghost story to life at Orpheus Brewing on Saturday, October 21st. The Fifty Year Sword is a rarely performed work with the five narrator's lines weaving in and out of each other like a Beckett play, telling one chilling tale of a fateful night in East Texas.
Chamber Cartel is back with Iannis Xenakis' monumental work, Pleiades! This tour de force sextet was performed in October of 2015 and we're doing it again! Please join us for this amazing concert experience.

Presented by the Goat Farm Arts Center, Chamber Cartel will perform a full concert of music by their Composer-in-Association, Aaron Jay Myers.
Aaron's music is influenced from many different sources. He is a rare composer that finds raw beauty that others discard in lieu of something more superficial. His music has an inherent depth to it that is from a place not many dare to go which rewards him and the audience handsomely. From hardcore punk rock to early music, flamenco, and New Music, each piece takes from these freely and makes it's own world.
Seating is limited. Get your tickets HERE.
Please join us for a celebration of Aaron's music.
For our second concert of our series through the Goat Farm Arts Center we will give the world premiere of Several Hundred Drops of Water on an Unfired Block of Porcelain by Anthony Donofrio. This nearly 3 hour work for piano and two percussion is a beautiful, intriguing, and complex sonic meditation.
Chamber Cartel's second concert of Beyond the Zero at Orpheus Brewing is Strange and Sacred Noise by John Luther Adams. This 45 minute epic work for four percussionists is an amazing sonic journey. Come experience this gorgeous work that channels the energy and awe-inspiring feeling of the Alaskan Tundra.

On January 1, 2012, Chamber Cartel made its debut to the world. Now five years later we come back to our roots with a performance of Crippled Symmetry by Morton Feldman. The continuous 90 minute work is an amazing piece of music; one that takes you out of the realm of the known world and transports you to somewhere else. Somewhere between here and there. A place that floats, much like the interweaving lines of the piano/celeste, flutes, and percussion.
We hope you come join us in celebrating this beautiful work and our five year anniversary in a place that's near and dear to the hearts of the Cartel: Atlanta.
Be sure to get your tickets here!
