Events / Capital Fringe

DowntownDC and Capital Fringe present various Fringe curated local DC artists at Franklin Park.

July 14 – Janel and Anthony

Janel and Anthony are a Washington DC based instrumental duo creating lush, orchestral works investigating the treacherous emotional terrain at the hyper-mobile heart of 21st century America. Drawing on everything from Hindustani ragas and surf rock licks to Appalachian laments and post-bop harmonies, the two alternate between intricately lapidary, electro-acoustic soundscapes and brief improvised dialogues.

Anthony Pirog is an omnivorous guitarist, and Janel Leppin, is a conservatory trained cellist steeped in North Indian and Persian classical music, free improvisation and jazz. Together their music is global in its sonic, instrumental and emotional reach, sharing the inclusive spirit of jazz and 21st century classical music.

July 21 - Ian McColm / Nate Scheible Duo

Drawing from their explorations in experimental and electronic music, Scheible and McColm reexamine the American trap set from outside-in. Using extended techniques and an arsenal of accessories, the pair present new sonic landscapes from fragments of familiar and esoteric drumset repertoire.
