We’re thrilled to announce the world premiere of our new program curated by Ted Hearne and Chris Rountree: of Ascension

For ages, humans have been inspired by the act of rising, by being lifted off the ground and into flight. With an ensemble of wind instruments and a rhythm section: we follow the lines of celestial pop music, ecstatic Sufi (question this language) spinning, wild free jazz, gripped complexity, and antiphonal polyphony. For wild Up, of Ascension is an architecture filled with vibrant noise — one that connects disparate stylistic art forms inside a self-similar sound.

The music of maybe: Julius Eastman, Brian Ferneyhough, Ted Hearne, Guillaume Machaut, Bjork, Olivier Messiaen, John Coltrane, Eric Dolphy, Weston Olnecki, and others

Two shows:

November 8th, 8pm
November 10th, 8pm
