Liberté Big Band : PROVA

Led by composer and pianist Liberté Anne, the Liberté Big Band is a vehicle for musical exploration, creativity and spontaneity, steeped in the jazz tradition. These sessions are open rehearsals where the public can get real sense of the musical creative and rehearsal process. PROVA is an exercise, an experimentation, a probing into possibilities as well as limitations. I encourage audience to come with curiosity, open ears and even critiques! Or just come to the usual Reso hang.

Jean-Michel Pilc's Improvisation Workshop Project

Based in Montreal, Canada, the Improvisation Workshop Project (IWP) brings together musicians of all backgrounds and experience levels (students and professional musicians, jazz and classical) to explore the tradition of jazz as “improvised chamber music” based on collective improvisation. Weekly playing sessions assemble different casts of musicians to try new ideas and interpret new material brought by project lead Jean-Michel Pilc and other participants. Using an “improvisation as instant composition approach and the collective improvisational process, the IWP investigates how such diverse disciplines as composition, orchestration, musical interpretation and improvisation combine organically into a coherent whole in jazz music, and also how a diverse lineup of musicians can hold natural and meaningful musical conversations. The project's innovative research approach involves thorough documentation of the creative improvisation process, including post-playing session journals logged by all participants, allowing them to share their thoughts on the artistic process. By drawing from musicians’ insider perspectives, this archive provides a unique research resource for the study of improvisation-composition within a variable medium-size jazz ensemble.

Duo Velour

Duo Velour explores such questions as where exactly do the stage and real life meet? and where do we draw the line between art song and popular music? We started collaborating when we met as students at the New England Conservatory and we formed we Duo Velour after Andrea's success in the Lotte Lenya competition. We take our name from the attire of notorious cabaret owner and performer Aristide Bruant. Packed with equal parts comedy and tragedy, our show spans from the world of late 19th century European cabarets to the semi-staged songs of contemporary composers, some of which were composed specifically for us.

Leslee Smucker/Sound of the Mountain

Leslee Smucker presents mixed messages for violin, voice, and two answering machines. Mixed messages is a sound experiment based on the tension between technology, communication, and human interaction. This semi-improvisatory, modular, sound collage runs around 45min, and move through 10 messages. Layers are built by recording recorded and live sounds; streaming undercurrents from past massages as well as new techniques. As the messages progress, the recordings become more distorted; recording on top of recording, resulting in feedback, disintegration, and degradation of the message. Sound of the Mountain presents their work developing a sound language which merges acoustic and electronic textures through amplification and extended performance techniques. With this language they create long-form improvised soundscapes, evoking a vast range of textures, from silence and spaciousness, to rumbling bass and room saturation. The duo works with closely-mic’d instruments and minimal equalization, avoiding the use of effects pedals and loops, such that their constant physical attention drives the music. The whistles and creaking of metal and reed anticipate the more dense moments of distortion and feedback in pieces that can be appreciated as discreet moments, or longer forms.

Florafone Records Presents: Matthewdavid

Florafone Records presenté... Matthewdavid (LA) [Leaving Records, Brainfeeder] Co-owner of Leaving Records, where artists like Ras G, Jonwayne, and Odd Nosdam have released their avant beats. L.A.’s Matthew David McQueen is also a solo artist, recording and performing under thee name Matthewdavid. Born in Atlanta, Georgia, he was a mainstream hip-hop fan before getting turned onto the left-field beats of cables like Plug Research Records and Stones Throw Records. An internship at the former meant a move to L.A. and, in 2008, a debut release on thee label with the Spills EP. Leaving Records was formed with visual artist Jesselisa Moretti that same year and issued cassettes, CDs, LPs, and downloads from underground artists like Dak, Jar Off, and Matthewdavid himself, who collaborated with Sun Araw on the cassette release LIVEPHREAXXX!!!!! in 2010. Matthewdavid’s Outmind appeared in 2011 on the BRAINFEEDER label (and featured a co-production from label boss Flying Lotus), while that same year the collaborative Swedish Fish with Odd Nosdam landed back home on Leaving. His limited cassette releases drifted further from hip-hop betaking, and the 2013 full-length Mindflight explored the producer’s ambient and new age influences. In My World, issued by Brainfeeder in 2014, was a return to his trippy, syrupy hip-hop sound, but much of his subsequent work was produced under his new age handle, Matthewdavid’s Mindflight. Following several Mindflight releases for Leave and NNA Tapes, Matthewdavid released Time Flying Beats, a cassette of previously unreleased tracks inspired by footwork and jungle, in 2018.

The Plastic Waste Band

Born out of jazz and improvised music but drawing from their diverse influences of psychedelic rock, fusion, and beyond, The Plastic Waste Band’s live shows carry the audience through moments of meditative serenity and fiery spontaneity. Layered saxophones, affected guitar, and driving bass and drums sweep the listener into disparate musical environments that feel constantly fresh. With their latest album, “Crushed,” they have established themselves as a band with a sound uniquely their own.

Finer/Haggart

Most people aren't conscious that we all come from other dimensions. Your music allows audiences to remember our origins on planets like Citherio and Pluxion. -Audience member While Dustin Finer and Patrick Haggart make no claims regarding powers of interstellar awaking, they do boast a visionary take on saxophone and electronics. Their symbiotic improvisations generate a single sonic output, blurring the lines of cause and effect. Classically trained, Finer’s “alarmingly proficient” contemporary saxophone techniques have drawn comparisons to Colin Stetson and Bendik Giske. Haggart (aka Stereo_IMG) has used his background in cinematic sound design to build a reputation in Montreal’s techno and experimental electronic scenes as a meticulous craftsman. Together the duo unravels dark, stream-of-conscious narratives as Haggart wields a chain of effects hardware to manipulate Finer’s live saxophone. Two improvisers. One output. Full send.

New Language Collaborative & Daniel Carter

One of the Boston area's longest-standing improvising bands joins forces with a veteran of New York city's improvised music and free jazz communities. Daniel is known as beautiful voice of freedom, and has worked for decades with William Parker, Matthew Shipp, Cecil Taylor, and many many more. These five musicians are uniting for the first time for an international tour. Spanning several generations, and covering a truly orchestral range of sounds and dynamics, the players are as strong and idiosyncratic as they are flexible and deeply in tune with each other and the music.

Daniel Carter - tenor, alto, soprano saxophones, clarinet, flute, trumpet // Ellwood Epps - trumpet // Glynis Lomon - 'cello, voice, aquasonics // Eric Zinman - piano // Syd Smart - drums
