Established in 2006, Bing & Ruth is an ever-evolving collective steered by composer David Moore. A pianist from Kansas and graduate of New York’s School of Jazz and Contemporary Music at the New School, Moore’s work follows in the great tradition of fellow alumni John Cage and Steve Reich, albeit looking past the more studied repetition of the style’s forerunners toward a meditative form built on feeling.
“No Home of the Mind,” the collective’s third record and first on legendary indie label 4AD, explores the piano’s percussive qualities alongside running woodwinds, warbling tape delays and splattered upright bass lines, taking so-called “classical” music to new limits.
Join us tonight as the album, out February 17, will be performed in full for the first time, in partnership with Q2 Music. Hosted by WNYC’s John Schaefer.
