Firehouse Looks to the Sky + Bates/Douglas Podcasts
The trio call themselves Memorize the Sky and they will be performing this Friday May 24 at Firehouse 12, 45 Crown Street in New Haven. The music they play blends improvisation, electronics, and drones with a sense of dynamic variation that s rarely found in "free music." This is the saxophonist's 3rd trip to the Elm City performance space having appeared with Harris Eisenstadt's Canada Day (Dec. 2011) and Taylor Ho Bynum's Sextet (October 2005). The percussionist played in Braxton's Echo Echo Mirror House Septet in May of 2011.
Memorize the Sky will play 2 sets - 8:30 and 10 p.m. (separate admission charges) - for ticket information, go to firehouse12.com or call 203-785-0468.
