Hashtag - don't miss this great show unlocking the many moods of a fascinating instrument! Join Rolf Landberg (Stockholm, Sweden) and Boston-based movers and shakers Brian Calhoon & Greg Jukes of Marimba Cabaret, and Maria Finkelmeier, to discover a wide range of projects revolving around one instrument: the marimba. Brian and Greg of Marimba Cabaret come together to re-imagine pop and theater tunes with fresh covers, Rolf identifies an array of moods and characters through musical vignettes in his work #marimbagram, and Maria pairs Instagram videos with live electro-acoustic improvisations in #improvadayLIVE!
Rolf Landberg is a percussionist, drummer, composer and music producer based in Stockholm, Sweden. #marimbagram are crystallized improvisational ideas. The musical structures have been condensed into short pieces with clear forms. Each piece is completely improvised, and the album was recorded in a single take from beginning to end.
Marimba Cabaret brings a set of songs and stories featuring musical theater, pop hits and classical covers re-imagined for marimba, vibraphone and voice. Greg Jukes and Brian Calhoon play marimba, sing, confess, and (at times) stand 7-feet tall.
#improvadayLIVE merges remixed videos from Maria Finkelmeier's @improvaday Instagram feed with live improvisation! Featuring everything from a piñata to coffee cups, public art sculptures, and iPads, this electro-acoustic project aims to remind us that music really is everywhere!
