Varispeed first formed in 2011 to perform an off-the-cuff, site-specific rendition of Robert Ashley’s Perfect Lives in Brooklyn, NY. They have subsequently performed the piece with increasingly complex arrangements in 2011 (Performa Biennial, Manhattan), 2013 (Mount Tremper Arts, Catskills), 2014 (Pittsburgh Festival of New Music, Pittsburgh), and 2015 (Con Vivo, Jersey City).  Future performances for 2017/18 are being planned.  Voted Best of 2011 by TONY and the LA Times Read about Varispeed’s version of Perfect Lives in the New York Times & Wall Street Journal
