Chashama and Art of Franza, Inc. present Bobby Previte: Diorama, a solo drum set concert performed for one listener at a time at Chashama 266, an empty storefront in midtown Manhattan.
In Previte’s Diorama, each listener enters a small room and sits directly behind the drum set. Unaware of their identity, Previte plays an improvised 10-minute piece for his solo audience member. The strange, heightened intimacy of the interaction and the publicly exposed space create a concert of extremes and oppositions.
“Not unlike a sex scene in a Milan Kundera novel…a totally weird experience.” –New Music Box
