Texas-born, Brooklyn-based composer, singer and songwriter Corey Dargel is “one of the more original and consistently provocative artists pushing at the margins of modern classical music and adventurous pop” according to The New York Times. They’re not the only ones singing (no pun intended) his praises. Corey’s performing a newly expanded version of his song cycle Hold Yourself Together at 92YTribeca on October 20 as part of the SONiC : Sounds of a New Century festival, which highlights new works by composers 40-years-old and younger.
Where do you go for news when you start your day?
I try not to start my day with news, but Slate is my site for news.
What are your favorite websites?
Smitten Kitchen is great for recipes. Lurid Digs (totally not safe for work), Awkward Family Photos and Cake Wrecks never fail to amuse me.
How much do you use Twitter and Facebook (or other social networking services)?
I use both Twitter and Facebook, but the amount of time depends on how extensively I need to distort the reflection of my authentic self.
