Concert

Alvin Curran and the AGAM String Quartet

Location: The Renaissance Society
Admission: free
 

Alvin Curran is an American composer who has lived in Rome since the 1960's. He became well known for his work with MEV (Musica Electronica Viva, with Richard Titelbaum and Fredrick Rzewski) and new jazz musicians such as Steve Lacy, Evan Parker and Anthony Braxton. His compositions follow their own path, mixing many genres of music together with noise and electronic sounds. A very important voice in American music who is rarely heard in his own country. The program will feature his compositions performed by himself and the AGAM Quartet (Guy Figer and Carmel Raz, violins; Ai Ishida, viola; Ashley Garritson, cello.)
This event will take place in the gallery.
