Clement Reid"Dreams, Improvisations for Piano, combines sections from an earlier piece, Explorations. These selected movements are examples of reordering of musical material from the earlier piece, that give a kind of floating dream-like impression, in a similar manner as actual dreams seem to reorder and juxtapose experiences and events from reality in a new or unusual way, but with a different image or message. Dreams, Improvisations comprises six movements: Project, Dream 1, Dream 2, Improvisation, Dream 4, Dream 5."
Ann Cummings"How can I not own my own composition? When music is fundamentally motion, what keeps everything separate? Is there a continuity to brokenness?" Ann explores these questions with her etude Three of a Kind for String Bass, Banjo, and Piano.
Nadya Kadrevis and Jeremy ShaskusNadya and Jeremy will present a selection from Trinity, a work in three parts: creation, destruction, and redemption. Part one will be performed on the March 6 salon.
From Nadya: "I was inspired by the parallels between Hinduism and Christianity when I was in India in 2013 shooting my documentary. The inspiration took form when I met Jeremy and we decided to collaborate on the music; staying true to the mythology developing in my mind, we created part one. The cello represents Brahmin the eternal pulse of life, the piano represents Shiva the creator/destroyer, and the soprano saxophone represents Vishnu the redeemer."
Hear these works and join the discussion at the March 6, 2015 Salon.
