Contemporary Improvisation

June 26, 2011

During my time spent at Ball State University I performed several concerts with George Wolfe and Eric Edberg. The ensemble explored contemporary improvisation. The group consisted of saxophones, cello, vibraphone, and other percussion instruments. We gave concerts/demonstrations at Ball State University, the Greencastle Summer Music Festival, Dayton University, and the Chautauqua Institute. Each performance was different.

I have since moved on to Vancouver, BC to find new experiences in music, but old ideas still abound. Recently I’ve had the good fortune to meet Katie, a very talented percussionist who also takes part in this idea of contemporary improvisation.

Part of my idea for this blog is to include recordings of each step of my musical journey and showcase some great moments. Below is the first 6 minutes of the second meeting I had with Katie.
