Nearly Ninety, a new work composed by John Paul Jones in collaboration with Sonic Youth and mixed-media sound composer Takehisa Kosugi, will debut at the Brooklyn Academy of Music on April 16 2009 on the occasion of Merce Cunningham's 90th birthday. Jones has composed an evening-length work in the form of a complex Kyma Timeline with live multitracking, processing of live input, synthesis, and (in homage to John Cage) chance elements, which he will perform live at BAM April 16-19. Long a champion of improvisation and collaboration in dance, Cunningham and his dance company have worked with a number of musicians on past performances, including composer John Cage.
