Andrew McInnis + Ray Larsen Ensemble

Andrew McInnis will be presenting a series of tone poems for solo guitar, mixing through and spontaneous composition borrowing from 12-tone and Lydian Chromaticism. He is utilizing touch guitar technique which allows for strange otherworldly chord voicing. This music is inspired by recent travels through the high Andes of Peru, as well lucid dreaming, and lunar cycle meditations. A summation of the past 5 years of work, reaching for a new sound, tonal bridge connecting dream to waking.

Raymond Larsen is a Seattle-based trumpeter / composer known for his unique and spirited approach to the instrument. He works currently with Chemical Clock, Wayne Horvitz, and the Jacob Zimmerman Quintet to name a few. He will be presenting new material on this night with a surprise cast.
