The First Creative Music Series Concert of 2018! A live recording!
At the intersection of improvisation, electronics, experimental music, new media. The sextet will be performing with the latest iteration of Carl Testa’s interactive electronic music system called Sway, inspired by the works of George Lewis and Richard Teitelbaum that runs without direct intervention from Carl or the ensemble.
"Carl Testa's 'Ultraviolet' subtly blended acoustic and electronic noises as well as notated and improvised materials to conjure a splendidly successful piece, a sort of glacial minimalism expanded and subverted by the electronic overtones." - John Sharpe, New York City Jazz Record, August 2015
Carl Testa – bass, electronics
Erica Dicker – violin, baritone violin
Junko Fujiwara – cello (Boston)
Louis Guarino Jr – trumpet
Andria Nicodemou – vibraphone, percussion (Boston)
Anne Rhodes – voice
The Creative Music Series (CMS) was established in 1/ 2015, to showcase the work of adventurous jazz musicians from out-of-state, presenting them in intimate venues in the Cambridge/Somerville area. My endeavor was a reaction to the apparent lack of invitations being extended to accomplished, new talent and even unknown musicians to the Boston arcea. CMS has now begun to zero in on Boston based musicians who are creating their own projects with these out-of-town guests, and taking these musical risks to find an expression and gain a wider appreciation.
