Solo Sets!

Adam Goodwin is a Texan double bassist, composer and visual artist, currently living and working as a freelance musician in Berlin, Germany. He engages in a wide spectrum of creative activity that involves frequent collaboration with performers, composers, sound artists, choreographers, dancers, film makers and visual artists.

He has performed extensively throughout Europe, North America and Asia, playing contemporary chamber music and symphonic works as well as free improvisation, original compositions and a vast range of pieces written for solo contrabass.

Goodwin’s musical approach places a heavy emphasis on physical gesture and spontaneity, along with a conscious consideration of the particular space and context in which the music is taking place. As composer and interpreter, he strives to return to a primordial mode of expression which places the highest priority on the individuality of the performer and the spontaneity of each unique moment.

Tom Boram aka Borax is a Baltimore native, musician and multimedia artist.  His music is focused on improvisations on modular synth and harpsichord.  He has been working over the past 20 years on making the stubborn modular synthesizer into an expressive performance instrument, capable of the dynamics and gestures of acoustic horns, strings or drums.  He uses his all-analogue self-built instrument to make colorful and often humorous sounds that evoke wild animals, machines, and sci-fi nightmares..
