FEATURING: Matt Mitchell - piano / Jason Levine - computational art
Seeing sounds or hearing images? Join pianist Matt Mitchell, computational artist Jason Levine, and yours truly as we meet for the first time to explore the interaction possibilities between musical improvisation and generative art. Sound waves from both instruments will be captured by Levine‘s computer and transferred into a variety of shapes, colors, and textures in real time, providing the audience with a one-of-a-kind multi-sensory experience.
We are doing it again! I am thrilled to join drummer Colin Hinton, saxophonist Angela Morris and pianist Eli Wallace for a second time. We had a lot of fun playing together in the Bushwick Improvised Music Series and I cannot wait to repeat the experience! Please join us if you're around.
This project explores the ongoing processes of self-transformation through a journey that travels organically from various world music inspirations to free collective improvisations. The ensemble, which consists of violin, acoustic guitar, bass, and drums, attempts to push the boundaries of instrumental roles and navigates through a renewed sonic world of intricate textures to express shared human experiences such as vulnerability and strength.
