RTV: Paul Pinto // Iktus Percussion vs. Paul Pinto

Release Date: Wednesday, August 2, 2017

RTV chats with Paul Pinto to discuss his performance with Iktus Percussion, the effects of aging on the male psyche, and the artist vs. the athlete.

Paul Pinto creates and produces experimental music and theatrical works in traditional and non-traditional spaces and is the founder and co-director of ensembles thingNY and Varispeed. His own compositions blend chamber music with theatre with a focus on total performativity. Specifically, his work centers on the human voice and the endurance of the human body. Pinto has chosen to work equally with traditional instruments, lo-fi electronics, unconventional sound-makers and amateur musicians, creating one-minute opera, concert length chamber music, and durational performance art. He is currently a member of the HERE Artists Residency Program (HARP), where he is developing a new opera in 2017 entitled Thomas Paine in Violence.
