With an astounding repertoire of traditional and contemporary works at her disposal, Nishi is one of Japan's most sought after koto players. Stone is one of the pioneers of live computer music, and has worked extensively with musicians from Japan, where he splits his time. Over the past decade, bass clarinetist Gene Coleman has developed an international reputation as a composer and performer. In 2002 -2003 Coleman organized the Transonic Festival in Berlin around the theme of intercultural exchange in the field of new music. Both Nishi and Stone were featured performers, making the first evening something of a reunion. The second concert, Tuesday, February 21, 8:00, will feature works by contemporary Japanese composers performed by this trio as well as members of Ensemble Noamnesia.
