SONiC returns to New York from Thursday, October 15 through Friday, October 23, 2015. Produced by American Composers Orchestra, SONiC events range from a daylong marathon to late-night AfterHours concerts, from a free symphony concert at the Winter Garden at Brookfield Place to collaborations between emerging choreographers and composers. SONiC concerts take place at venues throughout New York City, and include performances by 14 extraordinary ensembles featuring at least 19 world premieres, three U.S. premieres, and 18 New York premieres. SONiC is curated by ACO Artistic Director Derek Bermel (main stage concerts) with Associate Curator Anna Clyne (AfterHours concerts), and is presented in collaboration with Carnegie Hall, Arts Brookfield, National Sawdust, Kaufman Music Center, Le Poisson Rouge, Roulette, DROM, and Americas Society, with lead support from The Fromm Music Foundation and additional support from the Howard Gilman Foundation.

Nieuw Amsterdams Peil
Nieuw Amsterdams Peil (NAP) is a group of several like-minded musicians who strive to open our ears to the diversity and richness of chamber music by composers of widely divergent musical trends, with a particular emphasis on the 20th-21st century repertoire, while also shedding light on composers and their sources of inspiration, or – in a wider focus – by defining their place within the context of music history. The collective, formed by violinist Heleen Hulst and pianist Gerard Bouwhuis in 2005, consists of specialists in the performance of new music. Because of this commitment they receive regular offers from composers who would like to write for them. Pieces were created for NAP by Martijn Padding, Guus Janssen and Rob Zuidam. “Anaïs Nin,” a monodrama, written by Louis Andriessen for NAP and Cristina Zavalloni, saw its first performance in 2010. In earlier years several of their programs featured music by Ligeti, Cage and Poulenc. NAP also co-operates with other disciplines in art like dance, film, visual arts and even scent. Recent projects include The Lost by filmmaker Reynold Reynolds, UrWald by fimmaker/composer Arnoud Noordegraaf, Narcissus by Calliope Tsoupaki and Conversations with My Mother by Benedict Weisser.
