“…[wildUp is] a raucous, grungy, irresistibly exuberant…fun-loving, exceptionally virtuosic family.” – The New York Times
We make music.
New music. Old music.
We’ll play it, as long as we love it.
With future folk, NS Group-in-Residence wild Up creates a communal concert of sound/noise/experience that celebrates old-world ways of living in the modern era.
Together, we will explore the music from Ancient India, modern California, post-war New York, and from American composers that envision a future form of music rooted in folk ethos. As moderns, we stand on the shoulders of the ancients. Their music changes us—compels us to make and unites us in being.
future folk is:
you, us, dogs, richard serra, all of us, consciousness, fruit baskets, wicker, sexless shakers, utopianists, pianists, free art, green grass, julius eastman, fruit pie, kisses, james tenney, old maple, banjos, nico, sycamore, hermann nitsche, red brick streets, live oak, blood rituals, moondog, dew, baseball, hot dogs, sundays with dad, john waters, cats, fred sandback, japanese design, vlogging, yoko ono, fluxus, sleeping in, americana. . . .
