Nick Zammuto, co-founder of the sonically and visually innovative band the Books, debuts his hotly anticipated new band, Zammuto.
The concert begins with a screening of the 35-minute film Achantè, for which he wrote the score.
Zammuto is a four-piece band: Vocal/guitar/electronics Nick Zammuto, multi-instrumentalist Gene Back (NYC – the Books), Drummer/Percussionist Sean Dixon (NYC) and Bassist Mike Zammuto. As with the Books, a Zammuto show includes a tightly integrated video projection, synched rhythmically with the performance. The show will focus on cuts from the new band, as well as classics from the Books and some never before performed tracks from the Books.
Achantè is an intimate, rhythmic portrait of Haitian Vodou. It is a collaborative project between a small international production team and four Vodou communities in the South of Haiti. Directed by Emily McMehen and produced by Geoffrey Sautner and Emily McMehen, with an original score by Nick Zammuto.
Sat, Feb 4 / 7 pm doors, 8 pm show. $15 day of show, $12 advance.
Nick Zammuto is a musician, composer and visual artist from Vermont. Best known as founding member and lead singer/writer of his band, the Books, he’s toured worldwide performing in venues from Carnegie Hall to Chicago’s Millenium Park to the Hollywood Forever Cemetery. He’s written and produced four full length records for the Books which Pitchfork describes as ‘a genre of one’. With a knack for connecting disparate sound samples from discarded media into intensely orchestrated collages, he’s been expanding listeners’ willingness to travel through uncharted musical territory while keeping them hooked with odd yet infectious rhythms and melodies. He started his new band, Zammuto, in 2011, and is releasing tracks as they are created, so far generating wide coverage by online music-news outlets such as Stereogum, Pitchfork and Tiny Mixtapes etc. The much anticipated debut album of the new band is expected in early 2012 on ‘Explosions in The Sky’ label Temporary Residence (NYC).
