AUDACIOUS, ONE-NIGHT-ONLY PRESENTATIONS OF SURPRISING MUSICAL COLLABORATIONS
“No series has better instincts in fomenting post-genre alchemy than the Ecstatic Music Festival.” (Steve Smith, The New Yorker)
Get up close and personal with trailblazing artists stretching their wings and diving into collaborations that take their work in bold new directions. The only music festival that exclusively presents new work resulting from collaborations, the EMF has been hailed as “a who’s who of the music scene” (WQXR) and “audacious combinations and post-genre hybrids” (The New Yorker).
From Copenhagen to Brooklyn, the “revolutionary” (Shadowproof.com) free jazz collective Irreversible Entanglements has shared its message of liberation, starting with its first appearance at a Musicians March Against Police Brutality in New York City in early 2015. Comprised of mesmerizing vocalist Camae Ayewa (a.k.a. Moor Mother) – whose searing poetic narrations of Black trauma, survival and power drive each work, alto saxophonist Keir Neuringer, trumpeter Aquiles Navarro, double bassist Luke Stewart and Tcheser Holmes on drums, this quintet will join forces for a unique evening of music-making with two equally powerful artists: Legendary pianist/vocalist/improviser Amina Claudine Myers, a member of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM) since 1966; and the “furiously inventive” (Los Angeles Times) composer/flutist Nicole Mitchell. A member of the AACM since 1965, her influences are multi-dimensional, across generations and genres. She received a 2011 Herb Alpert Award in the Arts, and has been named “the most important jazz flutist of her generation” (Allaboutjazz.com).
