Sunday, December 17, 2017 - 10:00pm to 11:00pm
Join us this Sunday from 10-11 pm on 89.9 FM as we kick off a new project of live-broadcast, first-time collaborations in the WKCR studio. In this ongoing series, we invite musicians who have never played together before to meet and improvise in real-time. This Sunday, December 17, we're inviting two musicians, Pascal Le Boeuf and Brandon Lopez, to collaborate on air.
Le Boeuf, a Grammy-nominated composer, pianist, and improviser, synthesizes the disparate idioms in his work with polyrhythmic chamber music, classical and electronics-based production, swinging jazz, R&B, classical modernism, and more. Le Boeuf will play piano and mallets.
Lopez, conservatory-trained bassist and composer, is known to play with bruising physicality and natural cohesion with his fellow collaborators, making him one of the most in-demand musicians of his generation. Lopez will join Le Boeuf on bass. Process-discussion and talk-back to follow.
