Dave Longstreth / Dirty Projectors / stargaze

A black and white portrait of Dave Longstreth, looking sideways at the camera. He is wearing a dark shirt and has a beard.

Explore the multifaceted music of Dave Longstreth as contemporary-classical ensemble stargaze perform his new piece with him, and Dirty Projectors vocalist Felicia Douglass.

Longstreth and stargaze leader André de Ridder may have met at a festival back in 2013, but their promise to ‘do something new’ stuck, and in 2021 they finally premiered their collaborative work. The resulting piece, Song of the Earth is inspired by Gustav Mahler’s piece of the same name, reframing it 111 years later, as our relationship to the earth has changed so dramatically.

Founded in New York in 2002 by Longstreth, Dirty Projectors have become known as a group pushing indie-rock; from radio-friendly bops to delicate, introspective songs with rich instrumentation, they’ve won over both mainstream indie fans and the niche-minded music fan alike. In 2018 Felicia Douglass became a key member and collaborator, adding her rich, characterful vocals to their sound.

The end time for this concert will be added here closer to the performance date.
