Past Present – Night 2
Saturday, September 17th 8:30 PM $15 Suggested Donation
The Norwegian duo Past Present propel themselves and their instruments beyond the status quo and the space beyond. Driving. Raw. Music filled with contrasts and large sounds. Insert inspiration from classical composers, a nod to the jazz tradition, then blow it up through creative expression unrestrained by the laws of the past. Organic. Engaged. Past Present challenge themselves, their instruments, and creative music’s idiomatic roles. Both were born and bred in Norway ultimately establishing their connection in Oslo at the Norwegian Academy of Music.
