Paul Simon To Play Intimate Queens Venue Simon will be accompanied by musicians Mark Stewart and Skip LaPlante. QUEENS Twelve-time Grammy winner and one of world’s most influential songwriters, Paul Simon, will be playing an intimate concert at the Materials for the Arts venue on 33-00 Northern Blvd. Long Island City, on April 5.2017. Simon, a Kew Gardens native, decided to play the venue after a visit, during which he saw Skip LaPlante’s collection of 130 makeshift wind chimes constructed from waste collected all over the city, such as lobster pots, bicycle pedals, license plates and cosmetic items. Simon was blown away by the 35,000-square-foot warehouse and its countless aisles filled with materials donated by businesses and individuals. Skip La Plante (Boston, April 28, 1951) American instrument builder, composer, and performer, noted for constructing instruments from discarded objects. He studied composition with Milton Babbitt at Princeton and in 198990 pursued music performance and instrument making in Java in connection with the activities of his wife, the late Deena Burton, founder of Arts Indonesia. Since 1974, when LaPlante first sought new sounds as a dance accompanist and composer (he has written about 100 works for dance performances), he has made hundreds of instruments of all kinds from recycled materials, some inspired by non-Western models. In 1975 he co-founded (with Carole Weber) the ensemble Music for Homemade Instruments, a New York collective involving instrument makers, performers, and composers. As a member of the American Festival of Microtonal Music he has made new versions of instruments such as Julian Carillos 96-note-per-octave harp and various types built by Harry Partch. He conducts instrument-making workshops for children under auspices of Bash The Trash and Young Audiences of New York, and has collaborated in theatre productions with Sam Shepard and Joseph Chaikin.
