Mimi Rabson & The String Theory Trio
Led by founder Mimi Rabson, one of the Boston area’s most valuable musical resources,and a Berklee faculty professor and author, The String Theory Trio explores the fine lines between compositions and improvisation.
"... aggressively eclectic and a master of every style she touches."Bowed Radio
The presence of a framework of improvisation and rhythmic drive suggest jazz, but the ostinato patterns evoke a post-modern minimalism. And (but not surprisingly), Rabson says she is in great debt to the free improvisation community, particularly Lawrence D. Butch Morris. Ms. Rabson is the newest composer/member of the Jazz Composers Alliance.
“…musician, critics and listeners see Haverstick as either a masterful contributor of new music or an abrasive and irritating noise that won’t go away.” Westword
"Formidable fretboard chops and an affinity for the blues." – International Musician
Tuning theory is vast and ancient, and its study and application has opened many areas of exploration for creative musicians. Haverstick has found a new freedom as a player and composer, because he has access to more subtle intervals and the new scales and chords which come from them.
