Music from Daniel Wohl's penetrating Corps Exquis will be part of Jody Oberfelder's "The Brain Piece" — a collaboration of dance, sound, science, and audience that examines how the mind works, how our neurons that wire together fire together.

Creating tangible personal experiences, "The Brain Piece" allows the audience the opportunity to find moments of self-revelation as they journey temporally through the piece, discovering how the society within one's own brain interacts with the world.

An in-development showing takes place 7:30 pm on April 29 in New York City at Dixon Place, 161 Chrystie Street.

Paris-born and Brooklyn-based composer Daniel Wohl draws on his background in electronic music to create pieces that "blur the line between electronic and acoustic instrumentation and seemingly melt both elements into a greater organic whole" (WNYC). He has worked with chamber ensembles and orchestras including the American Symphony Orchestra, Albany Symphony Orchestra, Bang on a Can All-Stars, Indianapolis Symphony, the Calder Quartet, eighth blackbird, New York Youth Symphony, So Percussion and has collaborated with artists such as Laurel Halo, Julia Holter, and Son Lux.

Corps Exquis
"Vivid, detailed and engaging…boldly surreal aural experience."
— Steve Smith, The New York Times

"Aided by Julia Holter's vaporous vocalise, Corpus floats in crepuscular world where electronic and acoustic instruments dwell in fearless equilibrium."
— 100 Favorite Songs Of 2013, NPR Music

"Perhaps the best compliment I can pay Corps Exquis is that I couldn't stop listening to it. The tracks are a parade of bright lights and glimpses of secret corridors, all passing by long before they wear out their welcome."
— Molly Sheridan, NewMusicBox.org, 7/23/2013
