I think you should make time and space to go see the Dedalus Ensemble play Monday night, September 16, in the Willow Place Auditorium, 26 Willow Place, Brooklyn Heights. The concert begins at 8pm, and admission is by donation, but unlike the Metropolitan Museum I encourage you to be generous.
You should go because the composers presented, including Antoine Beuger and Michael Pisaro, guarantee that this will be an evening of quiet music, I am certain that you need more of it. Because not only is the world loud, but the world of music in New York is loud, and until you hear a lot of quiet music, you won’t really just how oppressive that loudness is.

A polished, proficient young new-music group from France, Dedalus Ensemble is known chiefly through its recordings of pieces by Tom Johnson, Jürg Frey, and Antoine Beuger. Dedalus made its U.S. debut at Roulette on September 9 with a program entitled "Made in the USA," with commissioned works by an array of young American composers.
Their second U.S. performance at the Willow Place Auditorium on September 16 will present music from Europe, performed in collaboration with New York musicians.
