Gamelan Genta Kasturi and Blackhouse Improvisors Collective Concert May 18

Gamelan Genta Kasturi and Blackhouse Improvisors Collective have been hard at work since March working on material for our collaborative concert this Friday evening at 8pm on the 5th floor of City Center Square as part of Charlotte Street Foundation/Urban Culture Project Biannual Open Studios.  The program includes new compositions by Hunter Long, Russell Thorpe, Patrick Alonzo Conway, Teri Ann Quinn, Mary Huntimer and Chris Robinson that fuse the traditional Balinese Gamelan orchestra with a large ensemble of winds that includes Tuba, Euphonium, Trombone, Trumpet, Saxophones and Clarinets.  All this plus a rhythm section of Bass, Drums and Organ!  It is quite a sound.  We have had a great time bringing this show to life.  Additionally, Justin Hundley and Xochitl Rodriguez will improv dance to the Gamelan only composition “Masked Dance” from “Angels & Demons at Play” by Patrick Alonzo Conway.Image
