Ampersand Concert Series Glass Ghost & Robert Stillman

Bartos Theater
20 Ames Street, Bldg. E15-070
Cambridge, MA 02139

Doors open at 7:30 pm. Concert begins at 8 pm.

Ampersand presents a concert that explores the electronic, crystalline music of Glass Ghost and Robert Stillman.

Glass Ghost represents the birth of a new musical force distilled from myriad influences, from J. Dilla to Deerhoof. The result is something completely refreshing, and fittingly, a little scary. It’s the pairing of Eliot Krimsky’s fragile and haunting falsetto with the group’s bottom-heavy, hip-hop influenced rhythm section that yields the crystalline world propelled by Mike Johnson’s beats and Tyler Wood’s Moog bass and shimmering keyboards.

Opener Robert Stillman is a saxophonist and composer whose music juxtaposes the archaic with the futuristic, incorporating influences of Folk Americana, Jazz, Minimalism, and experimental electronic music to create a sound described by the Guardian as “lending an avant-garde shimmer to pre-modern American sounds.”

Tickets are available for purchase at the door or in advance online at the link above.

Cost: $3 with MIT ID, $5 general admission.

Ampersand, a collaborative concert series presented by WMBR & List Visual Arts Center, showcases contemporary music in Bartos Theater on MIT’s campus. Performances blend art and music and happen every other month. Audience members are encouraged to visit the current exhibitions at the List before experiencing each performance. We’re greatful for the support of Ames Street Deli for providing food for our performers.
