Search & Restore and Manhattan New Music Project (MNMP) are proud to co-present a four-night residency with the Grammy-nominated ensemble Kneebody. Each night will consist of two sets featuring special guests: guitarist Wayne Krantz, indie-rapper Busdriver, drummer Mark Guiliana, and experimental music producer Daedelus.
Founded in 2001, Kneebody has built upon an impressive array of individual resumes and conservatory training to create a truly singular voice within the instrumental world. The group released an album of works by Charles Ives in 2009 last year, which received a Grammy nomination in the crossover field. During the four-night run, Kneebody will perform from their follow-up 2010 release You Can Have Your Moment (Winter & Winter).
Described by The New York Times as “a resolutely unpin-downable band,” the L.A./Brooklyn based quintet can be measured as “a band that inhabits the borderland abutted by post-bop, indie-rock, and hip-hop, without seeming to give much thought to the borders.” All About Jazz references their dynamic scope of “M-Base funk, post-rock futurism, Sabbath-inspired thrash, bittersweet pop and chamber-esque introspection,” while trumpet player Shane Endsley affirms he “[tries] to avoid stylistic references” and that the group “has had many labels thrown at it, but none seem to fit.” Whatever the case may be, come experience first hand how this ensemble is able to brilliantly tear through several genres to create a singular sonic tapestry.
This performance is made possible with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs and the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency.
