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 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.
Not sure about what Pleiades is? Listen to this interview on WABE, Atlanta's NPR station.

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.
