Varispeed

Varispeed is a newly formed collective of composer-performers from music and theatre groups Panoply Performance Laboratory, ensemble thingNY, and Why Lie? that creates site-specific, sometimes-participatory, oftentimes-durational, forevermore-experimental events.  Founded by Aliza Simons, Dave Ruder, Paul Pinto, Brian McCorkle, and Gelsey Bell, Varispeed came together in June 2011 to perform a twelve-hour celebration of Robert Ashley's Perfect Lives.  Future projects include, among other all-day musical events, John Cage's Empty Words.
