The Ensemble at CalArts: 'MINIMALIST means' at REDCAT

April 7, 2016
Thursday, April 7, 2016 - 8:30pm

REDCAT: Charting an alternative path through minimalism and its legacy, The Ensemble at CalArts reaches beyond pulse-based patterns of harmonic accretion in search of the beating heart of “stripped-down,” “essential” music. Anchored by the ever-rewarding compositions of James Tenney — who stood as one of the most influential figures in the CalArts music community — the program looks overseas, to the work of Jo Kondo and Stephen Whittington, as well as close to home, with music made at, or through, CalArts by Harold Budd, Danny Clarke, Michael Jon Fink, Jordan Dykstra and Frederic Rzewski. The Ensemble, the resident professional group of CalArts’ Herb Alpert School of Music, is conducted by Mark Menzies, holder of the Hal Blaine Chair.

Jazz Bakery: All Star Trio - Bernstein - Goldings - Stewart at REDCAT

April 21, 2016
Thursday, April 21, 2016 - 8:30pm

REDCAT: Peter Bernstein -guitar: 
“He plays the best of them all for swing, logic, feel and taste.” —Jim Hall

“Some people just have it. Most of the time you have to teach someone what to do, but Peter knows it all.” —Lou Donaldson

Larry Goldings -organ:
“Goldings’ consistently brilliant playing proves the exception to the ‘Jack-of-all-trades’ adage…Larry is simply a master of all!” —JazzTimes 

Bill Stewart -drums:
“This guy’s a bottomless pit of ideas. He’s thrilling to be on the bandstand with. He’s not just one of the best drummers, but one of the best musicians I’ve ever been around.”
—Pat Metheny

The Bernstein - Goldings - Stewart  Trio has developed one of the most identifiable sounds in jazz today. Their recordings are phenomenal... and the trio gets even more hot and heavy in a live setting.

Tetsuya Umeda at REDCAT

April 27, 2016
Wednesday, April 27, 2016 - 8:30pm

REDCAT: “A delicate soundscape, something between theater and performance, with finely tuned pandemonium: thin electrical wires, plugs and switches, a dish with water, microphone stands, a box of eggs…”  — TheaterKrant, Holland

Osaka-based sound and installation artist Tetsuya Umeda creates surprising sound scores with an intriguing variety of found objects, inventions and environmental or architectural elements. Even places that at first glance seem nothing special, can have countless characteristics found above the ceiling, or behind the wall, in lightning systems and structures, the wall-material, the construction of the building, etc. Umeda creates his work through a dialogue with everyday tools and scraps, re-purposed machines and toy parts, creating elaborately related systems of cause-and-effect. Powered by gravity, wind, centrifugal force or falling objects, Umeda’s work often creates unpredictable, unstable sonic and visual environments.
