Hidden Melodies Revealed 15
Standing at the intersection of ritual, rock concert, and theatrical performance, The Sway Machinery’s shows have come to be known as an experience of New York City culture, offering a unique point of entry into the tradition of khazones (Eastern European Jewish liturgical music). The band’s breakthrough project was a 2007 performance called, Hidden Melodies Revealed. This event that was held on the first night of Rosh Hashanah and was framed as a concert version of ritual music, reconfigured through the sounds of 21st century rock and international popular music and framed in an iconoclastic performance that integrated storytelling, experimental animation and an orientation towards pleasure and community.
In celebration of the 15th anniversary, The Sway Machinery presents Hidden Melodies Revealed 15 at Brooklyn Bowl on the first night of Rosh Hashana: September 25, 2022. This new iteration of the concert-ritual will celebrate the widening circles of cantorial revival, and Yiddish experimental expressive culture that have emerged in the last decade. Offering a counterpoint to The Sway Machinery’s futurist sound, the evening will feature a “radical traditionalist” band performing new arrangements of Jewish ritual music on strings, led by virtuoso violinist Jake Shulman-Ment, and featuring vocalists including Midwest Ska pioneer and Yiddishist Shahanna McKinney-Baldon (more guest to be announced shortly!). The resulting worlds of sound will cross boundaries of time, calling upon ritual, invoking the power of ancestors to imagine radical futures.
The Sway Machinery’s current line-up of Jeremiah Lockwood (guitar and vocals), Yula Be’eri (bass and vocals), John Bollinger (drums), Stuart Bogie (tenor saxophone) and Jordan McLean (trumpet) will be enhanced by long-time bandmate Timothy Allen (guitar) and special guest Yusuke Yamamoto (organ). Hidden Melodies Revealed 15 is produced in collaboration with Neighborhood.
