A silent orchestra will perform in the middle of Times Square

Andrew Frisicano

If news of the silent dance party happening in Coney Island at the end of August whet your appetite for more live music delivered via headphones, you're in luck. On August 21 and 22 at 11pm, composer Jherek Bischoff and his Silent Orchestra ensemble, playing electronic orchestral instruments, will deliver his piece Cistern to an audience wearing wireless headphones. The finale is paired with an accompanying video work that screens daily on Times Square's billboards from 11:57pm to midnight. Bischoff is a tireless collaborator and his recent work includes music with Amanda Palmer, David Byrne, Mirah and more. Check out a teaser for his new album, Cistern, out now on the Leaf Label, below.
