Julius Eastman Vol. 1: Femenine Out June 18 On New Amsterdam

Wild Up Plays Julius Eastman At Segerstrom Center For The Arts in Costa Mesa, June 17


Today, the “boisterously theatrical” (NY Times) Los Angeles-based musical collective Wild Up share the latest excerpt from Julius Eastman Vol. 1: Femenine, the first entry in an ongoing multi-volume anthology honoring the hugely influential composer. Out June 18 on New Amsterdam Records, Julius Eastman Vol. 1: Femenine presents Eastman’s “marvel of open-form minimalism” (Pitchfork) with an electric performance that vibrates with a frenzied, kinetic energy punctuated by solo features that open up a conversation with the composer’s notoriously unorthodox scores.

Underheralded in his time, Julius Eastman — a young, gay, Black composer who made his presence felt in academia, discos, Europe, Carnegie Hall, and the downtown experimental music scene before dying in 1990 at age 49— is just recently being celebrated for his visionary and boundary-defying approach to composition. Julius Eastman Vol. 1: Femenine represents a departure for New Amsterdam Records, which until this point has exclusively released new music by active, living composers. Eastman is a special case, a composer whose genre-fluid music shines like a retroactive beacon to today’s musical creators. 

On June 17, 2021, Wild Up will bring “Femenine” to Segerstrom Center For The Arts for a socially distanced live outdoor performance that will honor the living, organic approach to music-making that Eastman’s works embody. Tickets are on sale here:https://www.scfta.org/events/2021/wild-up


About Wild Up:

Wild Up is a modern music collective—a group of Los Angeles-based musicians committed to creating visceral, thought-provoking happenings. They tell stories and make projects that live somewhere between new music and theater and performance art and pop. The group believes that music is a catalyst for shared experiences, and that the concert venue is a place for challenging, exciting, and igniting the community around us. Earlier this year, Wild Up produced its second annual Darkness Sounding festival, a series of musical happenings set against the darkest days of the year. Spanning a month, with over thirty distinct performances around Los Angeles (and virtually from beyond), the New York Times called Darkness Sounding “sincere, outdoorsy [and] trippy.”
