Reed Mathis And Electric Beethoven To Make NYC Debut At Brooklyn Comes Alive

first_imgThe second annual Brooklyn Comes Alive is thrilled to announce the addition of Reed Mathis and Electric Beethoven, a brand new instrumental collective with a direct focus on the classical suites of composer Ludwig Van Beethoven. The brainchild of bassist Reed Mathis, the band features Jay Lane (drums), Cochrane McMillan (drums), Todd Stoops (keys), and Clay Welch (guitar) in a movement that can only be described as “Classical Dance Music.”Mathis traveled for years collecting music samples from an all-star cast of musicians, putting together a who’s who for their soon-to-be-released album, Beathoven, featuring Phish’s Mike Gordon and Page McConnell, Marco Benevento, Joe Russo, Galactic’s Stanton Moore, The Greyboy Allstars’ Robert Walter, Matt Chamberlain, The Barr Brothers and more. To bring the music to life, Mathis assembled another all-star cast of musicians, and recently debuted the project at Terrapin Crossroads in San Rafael, CA. The music itself recreates Beethoven’s entire 3rd and 6th Symphonies, “jammed the fuck out of course.” With the project now coming to New York, there’s no telling who Mathis will recruit for special guests on this east coast appearance.You can listen to the leading single from Beathoven, titled “Rebirth,” below.Set for October 22, 2016, the second annual Brooklyn Comes Alive will span three of Brooklyn’s most popular venues — Brooklyn Bowl, The Hall at MP, and Music Hall of Williamsburg — all within a 10 minute walking radius. Tickets to the event grants you access to all three venues, and can be found here. More information can be found on the event’s website.So far, BCA has officially announced [Br]eaking [Bi]scuits, a collaboration between Break Science’s Adam Deitch and Borahm Lee with The Disco Biscuits’ Marc Brownstein and Aron Magner, and the All Brothers Band featuring Oteil & Kofi Burbridge, and Alan & Neal Evans.
