Scott, Jeff and Andrew meet often to work on the music that Andrew and Scott compose for this group, and as a result they play TOGETHER as a cohesive unit. This group does it all, weaving in and out of playing 'free' to creating spontaneous forms to playing changes and even the occasional standard.

21 CENTURY SCHIZOID MUSIC PRESENTS Nathan Davis image
Memory Spaces: Electroacoustic Music by Nathan Davis

Composer and percussionist Nathan Davis (NYC) makes music that is inspired by American experimentalism, Balinese gamelan, and by a fascination with sound and the natural world. The program will include solos with live processing for triangles, river stones, amplified computer, and alto flute (performed by Claire Chase), and a cello and hammered dulcimer duo for Odd Appetite (with cellist Ha-Yang Kim). These pieces explore remembered spaces of wonder, panic, beauty, claustrophobia, and transformation.

ong ago in a tiny cabin two young aliens found that more than re-wiring motherboards, they liked writing music together. music whose individual contributions are indistinguishable from the finished concept. music of beats and peaks, low end and delicacy. sometimes they sang, sometimes the music was enough.

"For two people, EMMA makes an unbelievable sound and fury."

Up-and-coming vocalist Heidi Krenn embodies a rare combination of classic jazz tradition and bold new style. After discovering and cultivating a passion for jazz music in her native Austria, Krenn won a prestigious Fulbright Award to study in New York City in 2004, symbolically marking her move to the next level of her musical career. Having studied and performed with highly respected musicians in Europe, she now showcases her unique vocal abilities among New York’s jazz elite. Her voice is a distinctive instrument in its own right, capable of navigating the most complex phrases and sophisticated harmonies. Krenn’s vocal prowess will surely establish her as one of the most highly sought after jazz vocalists in the years to come.

6:00PM  ENTERTAINING SCIENCE -- COLTRANE, EINSTEIN, AND COSMOLOGY 2
Roald Hoffmann

Stephon Alexander, saxophone & cosmology;  Robert Rowe, composer and music theorist
Entertaining Science -- COLTRANE, EINSTEIN, AND COSMOLOGY 2 image
Channelling the Sound of the Cosmos with cosmologist and sax player Stephon Alexander and his trio. Plus, the interactive musical systems of Robert Rowe, composer and music theorist.

Ever since the discovery of the 'quantum fluctuations' in the Cosmic Microwave Background Radiation in the early nineties, people have tried to figure out how the primordial structures in the universe emerged from 'nothing'. Stephon Alexander, a cosmologist at Penn State as well as a superb sax player and composer, will explore with us the origin and persistence of large scale structure formation in the universe. And, with his group, reinterpret this process through jazz improvisation, resonance and rhythm.

He will be paired with composer and NYU music theorist Robert Rowe, whose work has two main strands: the programming of music composition and improvisation, and interactive music systems, in which composition is influenced by a machine analysis of human musical expression during live performance. If you will, a search for large- and small-scale structure formation in improvised and composed music over time.

8:30PM  HARRI STOJKA: A TRIBUTE TO GIPSY SWING
Harri Stojka, guitar
Harri Stojka: A tribute to Gipsy Swing image
Swing at its best:
Harmonies and runs, vivacity and fine sounds tied together in a bouquet of great variety, played with virtuosity, feeling and joy. The themes are clear, no matter how much leeway there is for improvisation. Staccato or well-tempered, tempos are always characterised by lightness.

The band is homogenous, a perfect formula. Nothing to be added, this is rhythm and swing!
Werner Elsnig

Harri Stojka about his CD:
I love “old-fashioned jazz music”. I have always been fascinated with jazz music from the 1930ies and 1940ies. The carefree, nimble way in which the virtuoso soloists play flowing melodies, the “old-fashioned” harmonic structures – seemingly simple, and yet so difficult!
On this CD I play on a wonderful, magical (my wonderful, magical) gypsy jazz guitar – a Joseph di Mauro, built in Paris in ’87 – playing this music on such an instrument is always an experience beyond compare ... a fantastic journey back to a time when jazz was most intense, purest, greatest, at least for me!!
