About thingNY

thingNY is a collective of New York composer-performers who fuse electronic and acoustic chamber music with new opera, improvisation, theater, text, song, and installation. Founded in 2006, thingNY performs experimental sound works created collaboratively by the core ensemble – Paul Pinto, Erin Rogers, Jeffrey Young, Gelsey Bell, Dave Ruder, and Andrew Livingston – and by adventurous composers such as Jennifer Walshe, Robert Ashley, Rick Burkhardt, Pauline Oliveros, Miguel Frasconi, Vinko Globokar, John Cage, Julius Eastman, Jessie Marino, and Andrea La Rose.

The musicians of thingNY are a prolific bunch. They’ve collaboratively created four operas: their latest, This Takes Place Close By, explores the reactions of isolated individuals in the wake of a devastating storm, and was hailed as “blackly amusing, sonically rich” by NY Music Daily. thingNY has premiered many works of high energy chamber music by its ensemble members, including Paul Pinto’s wildly verbose minis series and Erin Rogers’ whimsical Trajectories, which were released together on Gold Bolus Recordings in 2016. In 2018 and 2019, the group went amplified to premiere the live version of Andrew Livingston’s Gold Bolus album News from the Oort Cloud in Brooklyn and Philadelphia, and then fully acoustic to premiere Dave Ruder’s understated You Must Read a Lot of Jung in Queens, DC, and Connecticut alongside Skylighght, a work collaboratively created and performed by Erin Rogers and Gelsey Bell. In 2017, thingNY presented and performed the premiere run of Paul Pinto’s Thomas Paine in Violence in association with HERE Arts Center.
