Just a quick heads up that my ensemble with Trevor Babb and Ben Zucker, the Après-Garde Ensemble, will be performing at the Uncertainty Music Series today (5/9/15) at 8 pm. We will be sharing the bill with Carte Noire.
Here’s how we describe ourselves:
The Après-Garde Ensemble is dedicated to performing music that blurs the distinction between avant-garde jazz and experimental classical music. The group’s repertoire primarily consists of works that use free improvisation, alternative methods of notation, experimental instrumental practices, and aleatoric methods within a compositional context. While the Après-Garde ensemble functions as a composers collective playing original works, the group also performs works by established experimental composers such as Daniel Goode, Frederic Rzewski, and Gavin Bryars.
For fans of experimental music trios with french names, this will be your dream night!
The Après-Garde Ensemble is also performing as a duo Sunday night (5/10/15) at the Outer Space Jazz Series, with sound sculptor David Torn going on at 8:30. It’s going to be a great evening of sonic exploration – bring your mom!

Hope to see you at one of these!
