Come join the party! Celebrate The Tank's 10th Anniversary with an amazing parade of multi-talented musicians at a special event dedicated to new music for toy instruments to honor The Tank's decade of unlimited creation and exploration.

Composer and multi-instrumentalist Angélica Negrón plays with toys. Interested in creating intricate yet simple narratives that evoke intangible moments in time, she presents a set of three new songs for voice, accordion, toys, music boxes, old clock parts and electronics exploring the sometimes-overlooked magic in the ostensibly insignificant, the domestic, the mundane and the quotidian.

Soprano Erin Heisel performs music for voice and toy instruments. She has performed at many venues in and beyond New York City, including international performances in Bolivia, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Also interested in physical theatre, she has performed a wide variety of music and performance art pieces in addition to several opera roles.

Composer Guy Barash celebrates The Tank's birthday with manipulated toy sounds. When he is not playing with toys, he enjoys playing with words, writing music which incorporates text in various settings and arrangements. He is a versatile musician, active in many musical genres as a composer, arranger, curator and performer. He composes orchestral, chamber, vocal and electro-acoustic music.

Flutist, composer and improviser Nicole Camacho is creating a name for herself as an eclectic musician via vibrant premieres of composers' words, performing in the world of popular music, involving an element of multi-media in her solo performances, and composing new flute works with a language all her own. Born and raised in Long Island with a Puerto Rican heritage, she has taken her classical upbringing and turned it upside down in creating experimental music such as her unforgettable rendition of composer Ronen Shai's Concerto for Piccolo and Game Boy.

Ronen Shai, Composer and Electronic Music Performer, explores his fascination with cyberpunk and vintage video games. He will be performing music for two Gameboy machines model DMG1 with the special cartridge LSDj [programed by Role Model]. Besides his music he will perform with Coco Heart a version of her song Power of Lust, orchestrated for Gameboy and Omnichord!
