After paying tribute to musicians and composers of the Belle Époque, including Sydney Bchet and Duke Ellington, to name just two of them, Vincent Peirani (accordian/vocals) and Émile Parisien (soprano saxophone) set out to discover Argentine tango.

Between performances of traditional pieces (Carlos Gardel, Astor Piazzolla) and the creation of new ones (Gubitsch, Peirani, Parisien), these two exceptional musicians – they know each other so well from their long collaboration that they seem to blend into one – present their own renderings of themes such as Temptation by Xavier Cugat, and they even go so far as to play a melody by Jelly Roll Morton.

With this new repertoire they give us their interpretation of tango music – a personal interpretation, anchored in the deepest traditions of this popular genre, and taking both tango and us to regions hitherto unexplored.

The Bagatelle Mediterranee Duo (feat. Paolino Dalla Porta on acoustic bass) was established in 1997. Since then, they have been composing and performing original compositions which represent a personal synthesis of jazz as well as European and Mediterranean musical traditions. The result is a captivating example of "chamber jazz" rich in energy, musical poetry and expressiveness and supported by a refined technique.

Join us for a talk and book signing with Jesse Reiser and Nanako Umemoto to celebrate the publication of Projects and Their Consequences.

Projects and Their Consequences traces thirty years of innovative, multidisciplinary investigations of form, structure, technique, and planning. Projects include large-scale studies of infrastructure for the East River Corridor and Hudson Yards areas in Manhattan and the Alishan Railway in Taiwan, as well as schemes for cultural institutions including the New Museum, Children's Museum of Pittsburgh, and University of Applied Arts Vienna.  Also included are thought-provoking "textual projects": narrative works that blur the boundaries of art and architecture. This book balances incisive interviews and essays with more than 400 strikingly original drawings, collages, and paintings. Large-format and beautifully designed, it is a necessary volume for architects and those interested in the intersection of architecture, art, and culture.

The scale and diversity of abandoned buildings is shown through examples from all around the world, demonstrating the extraordinary ingenuity of their transformation by some of the greatest architectural designers of the 20th and 21st centuries.
