If you’ve been following my blog since the beginning, you may recall the month-long residency I recorded of Anthony Cekay, an LIC-based composer who perfumed his opus to fans across the country via live streaming video.
From the article:
“Cekay was invited to present the piece in vignettes at a New York venue, but he wanted to offer an experience that went beyond a traditional performance: He wanted to stream his shows and have a jazz blogger offer a running commentary throughout. The problem was that the venue, while supportive of the project, didn’t have the capital he needed to back the whole thing. So, Cekay turned to the crowdfunding site RocketHub and raised $2,500 to pay for equipment, 20 musicians and tech support.”
