SORRY to announce this event has been CANCELLED due to the incoming nor’easter. We hope to reschedule this wonderful jazz event in the coming months.
Casey Thompson with Li Liu and Ben Holt present ‘In C’ + Anteater on Tuesday, March 13th at The Carleton. Show time is 8:30 PM and admission is $7 at the door.
‘In C’ is a modern minimalist piece of music. It consists of 53 musical phrases played sequentially, each repeated an arbitrary number of times before moving to the next. The piece typically lasts between 45 and 90 minutes. Terry Riley‘s performance notes for ‘In C’ say that the band should have around 35 musicians. Riley also says you can have fewer.
This performance also features international touring artists Li Liu (voice) and Ben Holt (guitar), making this event a special one. An ever evolving ensemble, on March 13 expect to hear a true cross-section of Halifax’s finest musicians: Gerald Coleman, Paul St. Amand, Kye Ehresman, Andrew MacKelvie, Liam Ring, Geordie Haley, Andrew Jackson, Adam Seto, Evan Cribb, Elizabeth O’Hanley, Evan Mahaney, Brendan Melchin, James Shaw, Casey Thompson and many more!
Following this musical tsunami will be a set by local modern jazz experiment ANTEATER.
