8PM at Roulette

20 Greene Street (between Canal and Grand)

“Alchemies between music and theater, text, movement, and ritual”

- Benjamin Frandzel, San Francisco Classical Voice

The 21st Season of Thomas Buckner’s innovative series of new music continues on November 12, 2009, featuring work by two American masters of integrating composition, electronics, and live performance: Earl Howard and Edmund Campion.

Saxophonist, composer and electronic sound constructionist Earl Howard’s work seamlessly integrates meticulously sculpted electroacoustic textures with the visceral immediacy of  live improvisation. Howard presents Strasser 60 for synthesizer solo, 2455 for saxophone solo, and Crupper, an electroacoustic duet w/ Koto player Miya Masaoka.

Howard successfully moves his composition[s] through different zones of rhythm and harmony without diminishing the buoyant ‘presentness’ which characterizes freely improvised music”- Ben Watson, The Wire
