A quartet of internationally renowned improvisor/composers plays together in concert for the first time. The players are Chris Brown, piano and electronics; Ben Davis, cello; Danishta Rivero; and Marshall Trammell, drums. The musicians will employ a simple algorithm to play one all of the possible combinations of solos, duos, trios, and a quartet. In their group improvisations the focus is always on continuous listening and interdependence of the music created spontaneously by every player.
