92Y Culture Klatsch Q&A With Corey Dargel

image

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.

What book are you currently reading (or the last one you read)? Print or digital?
On Balance by Adam Phillips and The Collected Stories of Lydia Davis

What magazines do you subscribe to?
Right now, in alphabetical order, it’s The Atlantic Monthly, Harper’s, The New Yorker, Platitudes Weekly, and Time Out New York.

What are your current (or all time) favorite television shows?
Recent favorites include “Forbrydelsen” (the original--and superior--Danish series on which AMC’s “The Killing” is based), the CBC’s “Intelligence,” and this obscure Serbian game show whose title roughly translated is Go to Sleep Immediately! in which insomniacs compete to see who can fall asleep the fastest.

What’s the last movie you saw?
I don’t watch movies often, but I’m pretty sure the last one I saw was Oldboy.

What’s the last performance (dance/opera/theater) you attended?
The Wooster Group’s “Vieux Carré.”

What’s the last music purchase you made?
Stephin Merritt’s Obscurities

What radio shows or podcasts do you listen to?
“Big Ideas”, “Savage Love”, “Culture Gabfest” and “Start the Week.”

What’s your favorite piece of art on display in your home?
My boyfriend, Yvan, and I are both fans of John Cage. Yvan found and framed a beautiful poster for a 1992 Cage Memorial Concert in San Francisco. It has great mesostics on it!

Where do you go / what do you do to “disconnect”?
Have sex, take a bath, play a video game, cook something, pet my cat.
