Artists and schedules are subject to change

SAT 2.05 -Charles Gayle
Charles Gayle plays double bass, tenor sax, piano, and has recently been exploring voice in his free jazz and improvised work. He was born in Buffalo, but moved to New York in the 1960s and played on the streets until (in the 1990s) he was noticed and later played everywhere from The Knitting Factory to a multi-country European solo tour.

Tickets: $10 (Advance $9, Members $8)

SAT 2.12 - Frances-Marie Uitti
Composer/performer Frances-Marie Uitti pioneered a revolutionary dimension to the cello by transforming it for the first time into a polyphonic instrument capable of sustained chordal (two, three, and four-part) and intricate multivoiced writing. Using two bows in one hand, this invention permits contemporaneous cross accents, multiple timbres, contrasting 4-voiced dynamics, simultaneous legato/articulated playing, that her previous work with a curved bow couldn't attain. György Kurtág, Luigi Nono, Giacinto Scelsi, Louis Andriessen, Jonathan Harvey, Richard Barrett, are among those who have used this technique in their works dedicated to her. Collaborating significantly over years with avant-garde artists such as John Cage, she has also worked closely with Iannis Xenakis, Elliott Carter, Brian Ferneyhough and countless composers from the new generation. This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the Netherlands Cultural Services.

Tickets: $12 (Advance $11, Members $10)

WED 2.16 - Frank London brass quartet
Trumpeter/composer Frank London is a member of the Klezmatics, the Hasidic New Wave, and has performed with John Zorn, LL Cool J, Mel Torme, Lester Bowie's Brass Fantasy, LaMonte Young, They Might Be Giants, David Byrne, Jane Siberry, Ben Folds 5, Marc Ribot, Maurice El Medioni and Gal Costa, and is featured on over 100 cds. He was music director for David Byrne and Robert Wilson's THE KNEE PLAYS, collaborated with Palestinian violinist Simon Shaheen, taught Jewish music in Canada, Crimea and the Catskills, and produced CD's for Gypsy Legend Esma Redzepova, and Algerian Pianist Maurice el Medioni. He has been featured on HBO's Sex and the City, at the North Sea Jazz Festival and the Lincoln Center Summer Festival, and was a co-founder of Les Miserables Brass Band and the Klezmer Conservatory Band.

Tickets: $12 (Advance $11, Members $10)

FRI 2.18 - Dither + Dawn of Midi
"The Collected," a composers collective, presents new works for celebrated electric guitar quartet, Dither, by Eric KM Clark, Lisa R. Coons, Jascha Narveson & Lainie Fefferman. Dither, a New York based electric guitar quartet, is dedicated to an eclectic mix of experimental repertoire, spanning composed music, improvisation, and electronic manipulation. With sounds ranging from clean pop textures to heavily processed noise, from tight rhythmic unity to cacophonous sound mass, all of Dither's music wholeheartedly embraces the beautiful, engulfing, and often gloriously loud sound of electric guitars. The quartet's members are Taylor Levine, David Linaburg, Josh Lopes, and James Moore. Among Dither's recent collaborators include downtown bagpiper Matthew Welch, composers Eve Beglarian and David Lang, and guitarist/composers Bryce Dessner, Nick Didkovsky, Marco Cappelli, Elliott Sharp, and Mark Stewart. In Fall of 2008, the quartet traveled to Hong Kong to premiere an evening-length theatrical work by Samson Young, "Hong Kong Explodes!" funded by the Hong Kong Council for the Arts. Recent performances in New York include the Performa Biennial, The MATA Festival Interval Series, and the Bang on a Can Marathon, at which they gave a monstrous performance of Eric km Clark's exPAT, a Dither commission for hearing-deprived guitar orchestra. Dither's debut album was released by Henceforth Records in June 2010.

Dawn of Midi is a collective made up of Indian contrabassist Aakaash Israni, Pakistani percussionist Qasim Naqvi, and Moroccan pianist Amino Belyamani. DoM's sound-world is one of effortless juxtaposition; from the harmonic language of Debussy to the clammer and rattle of extended techniques evoking Cage's piano preparations. After working as a group since 2007, Dawn of Midi released their debut album First in March of 2010 (Accretions) to unanimous high praise and was named among the top 3 "Best Piano Albums of 2010" by About.com. In the same year, a court-métrage was created for their piece 'A way with words' by French filmmakers Maxime Bruneel and Adèle Miossec. In 2010, DoM has performed concerts in New York, Tokyo, Osaka, Yokohama, Kyoto, California, Chicago, The Oberlin Conservatory of Music in Ohio, and the ISIM Festival at the University of Michigan. In the spring of 2011, Dawn of Midi has been invited to perform at Gasteig in Munich (home of the Munich Philharmonic), Frankfurt, Niederstetten, England, Portugal, and Austria. Dawn of Midi is also in the planning stages of a Large-scale multimedia project, Kashmir.

Tickets: $10 (Advance $9, Members $8)
