"Eclecticism that opens new horizons in the perceptions of music"
The New York based duo Noizepunk & BorisLove are combining elements form classical, jazz, electronic, house, hip-hop, experimental, etc. It is hard to put into one word the genre of music they are playing, hence they do not try to classify. The originality lies in the openness to musical sound in all its forms, in getting out of the box which constricts our understanding, and this duo does just that. On May 21st the duo will be joined by violinists Anna Borovik, Tasos Papastamou, vocalist Ninni Lindh and various NYC friends to perform compositions by Gene Pritsker, Mark Kostabi, Saint-Saëns, Bach and various music from their albums 'Cello Lounge' Volumes I & II
World-renowned cellist Borislav Strulev (aka BorisLove) has been fascinating audiences on some of the world's most prestigious stages since his U.S. debut at the Kennedy Center in 1993 arranged on initiative of Isaac Stern, Former World Bank President James Wolfensohn and Byron Janis. Critics call him a "soloist ... with a rich, singing tone" - The New York Times and the San Francisco Chronicle said that he "boasts an enormous, gripping sound, full of bright colors and effortless power; when he plays he commandeers the sonic spotlight with ease." "Associated Press wrote ''cellist Borislav Strulev, channeling no one, or perhaps God.'' "He plays as if born with a cello ".
Composer/guitarist/rapper/Di.J. Gene Pritsker (aka Di.J. Noizepunk)has written over six hundred compositions, including chamber operas, orchestral and chamber works, electro-acoustic music and songs for hip-hop and rock ensembles. All of his compositions employ an eclectic spectrum of styles and are influenced by his studies of various musical cultures. He is the founder and leader of Sound Liberation; an eclectic hip hop-chamber-jazz-rock-etc. ensemble and co-director of Composers' Concordance. Gene's music has been performed all over the world. The New York Times described him as "...audacious...multitalented." Joseph Pehrson, writing in The Music Connoisseur, described Pritsker as "dissolving the artificial boundaries between high brow, low brow, classical, popular musics and elevates the idea that if it's done well it is great music, regardless of the style or genre".
