Over the course of this decade, Brooklyn-based composer and saxophonist Travis Laplante has emerged as a significant player in avant-jazz and post-minimalist music, both as a solo artist (on albums like of 2011’s Heart Protector) and as part of larger ensembles like Battle Trance. The latter is a quartet of tenor saxophonists, which features former Madisonian/Surrounded By Reality co-founder Patrick Breiner. Most recently, Laplante has been performing in a new project called Subtle Degrees, with renowned drummer Gerald Cleaver. In late February 2018, the duo released its debut record, A Dance That Empties, on New Amsterdam Records. (Full disclosure: Battle Trance headlined a Tone Madison-presented show at the Gates of Heaven in October 2016.)
