Elliott Sharp A CARBONic Evening

Dec 08, 2011 08:00 PM - 10:00 PM

December 8, Elliott Sharp will present two aspects of ensemble, a quartet and orchestra in A CARBONic Evening. The smaller group functions like a rock band with the spontaneous freedom of a chamber ensemble or jazz group. The larger ensemble presents long form, structured pieces and algorithmic compositions such as SyndaKit, Quarks Swim Free, and Flexagons: self-organizing systems in which a simple set of rules and composed fragments yield ever-changing results.

The quartet will feature: Shelley Burgon - electric harp, Marc Sloan - electric bass, Joseph Trump - drums. percussion, Elliott sharp - 8-string guitarbass, soprano saxophone, electronics and the orchestra will feature additional musicians Jenny Lin - piano, Russ flynn - electric bass and Danny Tunick - percussion, vibraphone.
