FREE CONCERT on Friday, at 6 PM , at Bryant Park !!
Friday at 6:00PM, Forum for Electronic Acoustic Research (FFEAR) will kick off CMA’s New Music in Bryant Park concert series with a performance of the New Jazz Works-commission Mirage. The series—which continues every Friday evening at 6PM through August 30—is presented in partnership with New York City’s Bryant Park Corporation. Admission is free.
FFEAR - Forum for Electro-Acoustic Research, is an improvising quartet co-led by acclaimed soloists and frequent collaborators Ole Mathisen and Chris Washburne. "A QUARTET THAT SEEKS A SPACE BETWEEN JAZZ AND CHAMBER MUSIC," according to The New York Times, FFEAR’s objective is to explore new sonic possibilities by adopting contemporary classical compositional techniques into an improvisational setting. Conventional uses of meter, tonality, and harmony are replaced with multiple meters, microtonality, and open templates of form to create a fresh approach to improvised music.
