416 Club Commissions is an annual program of The Cedar, working in conjunction with The Jerome Foundation, that commissions seven emerging, Minnesota-based artists to create new work that is debuted in a public concert series at The Cedar. The 2014 recipients were chosen by a panel of Twin Cities music industry professionals including record label owners, music educators, local musicians, and Cedar staff. Each of the seven artists will present their work on Monday evenings beginning January 13th and running through to the end of February.

Inspired by Robert Rauschenberg's experimental work "Open Score," Noah Keesecker will compose a piece to be performed by himself and one other through a game of ping pong. The piece will be entirely composed and choreographed in advance, and will not be improvised. The ping pong table will be adorned with contact mics and play will trigger audio samples as well as video and lighting. Audience participation will be encouraged after the piece is performed.
