Innovative Solo works for Bassoon, Trumpet & Guitar
Athens Institute of Contemporary Art presents an evening of innovative solo works from Brooklyn-based composer/improvisers Katherine Young and Jacob Wick, and Athens' own Dan Nettles, best known as the bandleader, composer, and guitarist for Kenosha Kid. Wick will be performing swarm for solo trumpet, a piece structured by a graphic score he wrote in 2009 at the Harold Arts residency, its details changing and evolving each time it is performed. Young's solo work carefully employs specific amplification and pedals to enhance the overtones, interior sounds, and power of the instrument, and was described in Downbeat as making 'seriously bold leaps for the bassoon.' The event takes place in Floorspace, the movement arts studio right next door to Athica. Suggested donation 6 USD.
