New Haven Improvisers Collective at Firehouse 12
The New Haven Improvisers Collective returns to Firehouse 12 for its 10th year in a row for a showcase of new music.
This year’s edition celebrates the eponymous release of a new CD by ELECTRONHIC. Listen here: http://music.nhic-records.com/
ELECTRONHIC is driven by Chapman Stick and Drums, with comments, noise, electronics, saxophones, whistles and guitars.
The group started with a directive to keep still and leave space. The music was allowed to present itself and breathe without being forced. Motion gradually crept in and flourished with rhythms and energetic counterpoint, but open space remained. On the recording and as the group continues to move, space is especially evident in certain pieces, but it remains an important element even in the pieces that veer towards avant-rock.
This performance will feature mostly new music, highlighting the further evolution of the group.
