Catching up with David Fiuczynski after his recent performance at BAM Cafe was really a treat, since I remember catching his shows at the Knitting Factory and Tonic years ago (before they shut down). I was even more excited to hear that his signature exploration of sound through effects and the jazz-funk idiom was still intact after all these years.

Composer Adam Rudolph returns with another series of Go: Organic Orchestraat Roulette. In concert he will conduct between 20 – 35 musicians in a spontaneous way, using a newly created score of music/letter grids, language themes, tone rows, traditional and synthetic scales, diadic and intervalic harmonies, The compositions will also utilize Rudolph’s rhythm concept of “Cyclic Verticalism” to generate form and weave what he calls an “audio syncretic music fabric”. The music is “organic” in the sense that the compositions and conducting exist as an inspiration and context for the musicians to express themselves by using their instruments as an amplifier for their inner voice.
