Wet Ink teams up with renowned trumpeter/composer and longtime collaborator Peter Evans for an evening of sonic adventure for large ensemble.
The concert features a new set of music by Peter Evans with a lineup that Evans describes as “an unholy amalgam of his current and closest collaborators in a holiday season blow-out”: 12 musicians from Wet Ink and Being & Becoming (Joel Ross, vibes; Nick Jozwiack, bass and cello; Savannah Grace Harris, drums; Peter Evans, trumpet), with special guests Mazz Swift (violin) and Levy Lorenzo (percussion). Evans writes, “this evening will represent an ongoing process of discovery and collaborative creativity with these players - it is not a culmination of anything. Old and new compositions will be combined together with the improvisational talents of all the musicians, creating an hour-long work tailored specifically for this concert.”
The evening also features Wet Ink flutist Erin Lesser in two intricately virtuosic works: Sam Pluta's Delay Line for solo flute and electronics, and Bryn Jacobs’ Dis Un Il Im Ir, for flute, piano, and midi keyboard. Wet Ink will also perform sextet works including Alex Mincek’s Thread (premiere of the sextet version) and a new work by Danish-American saxophonist, vocalist, and composer Louise D.E. Jensen.
