Tonight in Madison

Short notice on a show tonight in Madison, from Surrounded by Reality Music:

Mark Snyder — clarinet, tuba, accordion, electronics, video!

Mark is on tour from Virginia, where he lives and teaches. He’s also touring with another clarinetist, which is pretty cool. His music is really beautiful and moving. More at his website:

Jeff Herriott/Trevor Saint duo — electronics/glockenspiel

Jeff is an improvisor and composer who crafts beautiful and complex spaces; Trevor is a great percussionist who is working to expand the repertoire for the glockenspiel.

Gregory Taylor — electronics

Gregory is a secret celebrity in Madison. His work with Max/MSP has pioneered a lot of areas in electronic music, and he has performed his music around the world, and been featured often on WNYC’s New Sounds program. He is also known for his show on Sunday nights on WORT, RTQE.

Weather Duo

In our first real show since the departure of our video artist, Anna, we have been developing a set of all-new material for this performance. We’re excited to debut it for you!
