Beyond-The Living Earth Show + Ned Rothenberg with Paul Dresher Electro-Acoustic Band featuring premieres of work with improvisation and invented instruments.
Paul Dresher Electro-Acoustic Band premieres Ned Rothenberg's improvised concerto Beyond C, an Ensemble commission inspired by Terry Riley's In C. Beyond C features Rothenberg as improvising woodwind soloist and Joel Davel as conductor. For this evening concert entitled BEYOND The Living Earth Show will premier selections from Dennis Aman's 24 Preludes & Fugues for invented instruments. Ned Rothenberg's Beyond C is a five-section concerto scored for improvising soloist, an ensemble of musicians playing paired instruments (the Electro-Acoustic Band), and improvising conductor Joel Davel. The Living Earth Show, featuring electric guitarist Travis Andrews and percussionist Andy Meyerson, is a megaphone and canvas for electro-acoustic by some of the world's most progressive artists.
Ned Rothenberg (Composer/Performer) has been internationally acclaimed for both his solo and ensemble music, presented for the past 33 years on 5 continents. He performs primarily on alto saxophone, clarinet, bass clarinet, and the shakuhachi - an end-blown Japanese bamboo flute. His solo work utilizes an expanded palette of sonic language, creating a kind of personal idiom all its own. In an ensemble setting, he leads the trio Sync, with Jerome Harris, guitars and Samir Chatterjee, tabla, works with the Mivos string quartet playing his Quintet for Clarinet and Strings and collaborates around the world with fellow improvisors. Recent recordings include this Quintet, The World of Odd Harmonics, Ryu Nashi (new music for shakuhachi), and Inner Diaspora, all on John Zorn's Tzadik label, as well as Live at Roulette with Evan Parker, and The Fell Clutch, on Rothenberg's Animul label.
