Key track from NYC-based artist’s remarkable new album, due from Waterbug. Check upcoming performance dates, below.

By Blurt Staff

Concetta Abbate’s Falling in Time is “a musical exploration of anthropology, science and poetry,” and indeed the sonic and video evidence of the song “Burst” suggests exactly that. We’re quite proud to be able to unveil it for you exclusively at BLURT:

The album’s tracks feature vibrations of stars, hand-made music boxes, Aeolian wind harps, and a South American charango. Concetta is a New York based artist who has performed in dozens of bands including Music Under New York’s Inti and the Moon and Guggenheim sponsored poet Cornelius Eady’s band Rough Magic. She is most recognized as a “badass violinist” (HINGED) who collaborates with writers, dancers and musicians of all genres. She has performed in venues as diverse as Carnegie Hall, the Jazz Gallery, the Stone, the East Indian Music Academy and the Rubin Art Museum. She will be a visiting composer in residence at TAKT art gallery in Berlin 2016.
