Wet Ink/Katharina Rosenberger CD Release Party

News, Shows

Join us at Exapno on October 5 to celebrate the release of Katharina’s new album on HatART!  We’re thrilled to be on this great label as an ensemble.  We spent a week recording at UCSD a couple of seasons ago, excited to finally see the finished product.

We’re psyched to have On Structure performing some new material for the evening (Jessie Marino, Natacha Diels).  Plus, we will have some performances by Wet Ink including excerpts from Kate Soper’s Cipher (vn/voice) and a new work for ensemble (feat. Ian Antonio, Eric Wubbels, Kate Soper, Alex Mincek, Sam Pluta, and Josh Modney).  And there will be refreshments, of course.

Hope to see you at Exapno! 33 Flatbush Ave, Brooklyn, NY

NY Times Review of ZS, Wet Ink, et al

Concert Reviews, News

Sam Hillmer of ZS, as printed in the New York Times

It was a great experience playing at 285 Kent last Wednesday among such illustrious folk.  ZS, Hubble, Extra Life, Mick Barr, and Diamond Terrifier all brought inspirational sets to the stage, and it was as always a privilege to play with Wet Ink.

This time, Wet Ink was a quartet comprised of Sam Pluta (electronics), Kate Soper (voice, keyboard), Alex Mincek (sax) and me (violin).  We debuted a gnarly drone piece which we will continue to develop over the next season.  Looking forward to some big Wet Ink events in 2012-13, more info coming soon!

There was a nice NYT review of last week’s show, focussed on the new sound of ZS, check it out! 

Wet Ink & ZS Tonight, 8/29!
