    The Theatre at Ace Hotel, 933 S Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90015, USA

    Austin-based composer Graham Reynolds leads a rousing experimental chamber opera that pays tribute to Pancho Villa, the legendary bandit, enigmatic general and hero of the Mexican Revolution.

The work itself is a transnational collaboration that brings together Mexico City theater collective Lagartijas Tiradas al Sol, director Shawn Sides of Rude Mechs and tenor Paul Sanchez and mezzo-soprano Liz Cass, backed by a stellar chamber ensemble, and fueled by remixes by famed Monterrey DJ Toy Selectah.

    Nick Photinos: Petits Artéfacts
    Monk Space, 4414 W 2nd St, Los Angeles, CA 90004, USA

    Petits Artéfacts is the debut solo recording from Eighth Blackbird founding cellist and co-artistic director Nick Photinos.

    The album brings together never-before-recorded works from some of the most acclaimed names in new music — David Lang, Andrew Norman, Bryce Dessner, David T. Little — but also a newer generation of groundbreaking composers like Angélica Negrón, Florent Ghys, Molly Joyce, and Pascal Le Boeuf, who are quickly gaining notoriety as well. The music ranges from quirky and hilarious to profound and ethereal, and the pieces create worlds and context far outweighing their length. The music is enlightened with the help of Photinos’s favorite collaborators, pianist Vicki Ray and percussionist Doug Perkins.
