Strings and Serpents
featuring: Andy Milne, Benoît Delbecq, Tsugumi Yamamoto & Ai Kajigano

Plying rhythmic forms and sonic colors in a shared language of improvisation, jazz pianists Andy Milne and Benoît Delbecq (a.k.a. Crystal Magnets) partner with the Japanese koto duo TsuguKaji-KOTO, amid the swirling washes of Saki Murotani’s projected animation. Conceived and composed by Milne—founder of Dapp Theory and noted veteran of New York’s downtown jazz scene—the 75-minute epic draws on the myth of the Rainbow Serpent as it opens new multilayered dialogues between East and West, sight and sound.

Zones of Influence

First written 30 years ago, David Rosenboom’s Zones of Influence is a landmark concert-length work for percussion soloist, live computer-generated electronics, and auxiliary keyboard and glissando instruments. At the time a breakthrough in linking virtuoso electroacoustic performance with interactive compositional algorithms, Zones is now fully realized—thanks to new a software instrument called the Touché II that allows the dynamic dimensionality of the music to take full mind-bending, cosmological shape. Rosenboom wrote the five-part epic expressly for superstar percussionist William Winant, who returns to perform on five live-processed percussion setups. He is joined by the composer on the Touché II, piano and violin, while Jinku Kim provides an immersive video environment for the concert. Rosenboom, one of the foremost voices in American composition since the late 1960s, released new double-CD recording of Zones of Influence on the Pogus Productions label this summer.

Performed by William Winant and David Rosenboom.

Latin Free Jazz Festival in New York

From Arts for Art:

Latin Free Jazz
Thursday November 6 & Friday Nov. 7, 2014
Metro Baptist Church

WHAT: Second annual Latin FreeJazz Festival: Redefining Latin Jazz
WHEN: Thursday 11/6 Friday 11/7 – 6:30 -11pm
WHERE: Metro Baptist Church, 410 W. 40th St, New York
TICKETS: $20 per night – $16 students & seniors

Arts for Art is excited to announce the second Latin Free Jazz Festival. This new program is meant to challenge the reductive “Latin Jazz” label by using it as a programming premise, and proving it insufficient through the diversity of voices and approaches. The featured artists are representative of Mexico, Cuba, Brazil, Puerto Rico, Africa & Spain. But most of all they represent themselves. They play music that they hear inside which goes far beyond national borders.
