School of Jazz Performance Space, Room I531, Arnhold Hall 55 West 13th Street, New York, NY 10011

Quincy Chimich is a Vancouver, BC raised, New York City based pianist and composer who seeks to defy genres and meld his inspirations in and outside of music into an engaging creative project. Trained classically in his former years, Quincy’s interest shifted to jazz and experimental classical music when he entered High School and was introduced to the music of Wayne Shorter, Iannis Xenakis and Edgar Varèse. Upon entering his freshman year at The New School in the Fall of 2013, and being surrounded by an extremely diverse musical culture, his interests expanded further into more experimental, avant-garde forms of music. Studying with such influential figures as Reggie Workman, Andrew Cyrille, Nate Wooley, and Elliott Sharp have helped Quincy gain multiple perspectives and skills in the realms of improvised and experimental music.

For Quincy’s recital, he is excited to debut a large scale electroacoustic work for String Quintet, Piano, Percussion and electronics. This piece (not yet named) is the result of Quincy’s love for avant garde film music (including that of Toru Takemitsu, Ryuichi Sakamoto and Phillip Glass) and his desire to create an immersive world of acoustic and electronic sound.

Presented by The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music.
