Notes on Chamberworks:
Voices of the Earth (Michel Gentile)
Voices of the Earth draws from the natural world to create a special balance between mind and body. The improvising musician is ideally situated to achieve such a balance. This piece uses the Fibonacci series in particular as a guiding principle when determining phrase lengths, tempos, intervals, etc. Tone clusters reveal a melody through subtraction (Chthonian), the overtone series creates an unpredictable chorale (Sous-entendu), four different tempos play simultaneously (Quatre Temps, un Mouvement), and phrases grow in Fibonacci strands (Corymb).

Inner Landscapes/Outer Strategies (Daniel Kelly)
Inner Landscapes/Outer Strategies is the first in a series of autobiographical pieces composed for different ensembles. In this piece, composer/pianist Daniel Kelly has reflected back to key emotional points in his life and scored them to music. In performance, these musical memories will be, at various times, amplified, questioned, re-contextualized, and even placed under attack, by different strategies employed by the improvising musicians in the ensemble. The work draws inspiration from the melodic language of Prokofiev and Peter Gabriel, the gestural and multi-layered language of Penderecki and Scelsi and the conductions of Butch Morris.

Life Lives (Rob Garcia)
This suite reflects upon the human experience of seeing and being with the ugliness and beauty of finding one's own truth through sudden difficult, challenging and amazing experiences life has given. The inspiration of the second movement, "Being Becoming Beauty" permeates the entire suite. The movements are connected by improvisations that express the emotional responses to sudden twists and turns of life's journey.

´╗┐This event is made possible in part with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, and by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, both administered by the Brooklyn Arts Council, Inc. (BAC) as well as funding from The Cary New Music Performance Fund administered by Meet the Composer.

Final Concert of the Season!
Saturday, May 19 - Dave Liebman and Scott Colley with WORKS

"the downtown scene has established an outpost in Brooklyn . . . where local practitioners are presenting a music so diverse and eclectic it doesn't even fit under the general umbrella of avant-garde." - The Wall Street Journal

"the concerts always feature top-flight artists . . . exciting, community-based stuff"
- Jazziz Magazine

"Celebrate music by being a part of the concert series that 'Brooklyn Jazz Wide Open' provides for the community at large!!! We need each other to carry on... Sounds & Feelings" - jazz legend Joe Lovano

"Brooklyn Jazz Wide Open is not just another concert series. One of the elements that makes it special-for both the audience and the musicians-is that artists are invited to discuss their process and answer questions as they arise. This creates a natural, relaxed atmosphere in which the barriers between audience and performers are removed and true understanding and appreciation can take place." - Eileen Willis, Metropolitan Museum of Art
