Medeski Martin & Wood, in association with Nevessa Production, are proud to announce two special live webcasts on June 9 and 10, at 7 p.m. EST each night. The performances will stream from the Nevessa Soundstage near Woodstock, New York.
The June 9 webcast will feature a concert performance, consisting of two 60-minute sets in an intimate setting. MMW will perform music from their “Radiolarians” series in addition to a fully improvised set. The June 10 webcast will consist of a master class hosted by MMW, during which the band will illustrate the different ways they use composition to lend structure to interactive group improvisation. The web audience can interact directly with the band by submitting questions and comments live via Facebook and Twitter. Instructions for these features will be provided with purchase.
Tickets for this two-day, in-home concert experience are available at www.nevessa.com/mmw.html for $24.95. This includes access to the live stream as well as a one-month period of on-demand streaming.
For fans in the Woodstock area, a limited number of tickets for both events are available for purchase at www.nevessa.com/mmw.html. Tickets for the live events are $100 each night or $160 for both. Tickets include a meet-and-greet with MMW.
