The acclaimed instrumentalist and composer Tyshawn Sorey presents three evenings of performances offering the fullest overview of his various working methods to date—including intergenerational collaborations and ritual works, as well as pieces featuring his percussion cage, modern jazz comprising highly-detailed forms that contain harmonic chromaticism and varying degrees of ensemble interplay, and a newly-formed ensemble that integrates spoken word, turntablism, and spontaneous composition. Organized by Tim Griffin.

$20 General / $15 Members. 

Sunday, October 21, 6pm: a very special duo with pianist Marilyn Crispell, with whom Sorey has collaborated on and off during the past five years.

Monday, October 22, 8pm: the world premiere of seven pieces for sextet composed during a Rauschenberg Foundation residency this past summer, featuring Sorey with Sasha Berliner (vibraphone), Nick Dunston (bass), Morgan Guerin (saxophone), Lex Korten (piano), and Nathan Reising (saxophone).

Tuesday, October 23, 8pm: a newly-formed ensemble that integrates spontaneous composition with elements of freestyle, turntablism, and electronics, featuring Sorey with High Priest / HPrizm (electronics and vocals), Graham Haynes (trumpet), Val-Inc (electronics, percussion, and turntables), and Brandon Ross (guitar).
