NEW YORK, 10 August 1998 - The Manhattan-based
ComposersCollaborative inc, a new music presenting organization, and
HERE, the Obie award-winning independent art center in Soho, present
cool sounds to beat the summer heat at the Non Sequitur Festival. The

Universe, and the Mass for 77 Trombones promises to make a
big noise on a toy piano redux on Friday. Chambers will play a recital
of music written especially for her by Jerome Kitzke, Patrick Hardish,
and Jed Distler. Her program includes John Cage's classic Suite
for Toy Piano and the première of her own Mandala for
Toy Piano and Sonatina for Toy Piano and Hamster(s).
Saturday evening composer Jed Distler joins members of Blue, Gamelan
Son of Lion, Music under Construction, Riverside Choral Society, Many
and the Non Sequitar festival audience in a reinterpretation of 99
Bottles of Beer on the Wall. Original music, texts, and
performances by Jed Distler, Barbara Benary, David Leopold, Randall
