The first six performances in this seven-month series will serve two functions. The first function is the immediate context of the live performance, which showcases a range of innovative pianists who have emerged from various corners of the jazz idiom while exploring the elemental pairing of piano and drums. The second function of these performances is to provide raw material for a final project that weaves together recordings of these performances through sampling, compositional editing, and other performance and production techniques. For the duration of these performances, The Jazz Gallery will become part of the production studio itself; the audience experience will be re-contextualized both as listening to a live performance and observing the production of raw material that is intended to create something entirely new at a later date. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=348437 The Jazz Gallery The Jazz Gallery
