Imaginary chamber music from an alternate universe. 

Friday March 17, doors 8:30 music at 9PM, $5-15

  • Evan Courtin: violin, voice
  • Megan Kyle: oboe, English horn
  • Michael McNeill: piano, organ
  • Katie Weissman: cello, electronics

An unconventional quartet drawing on collective experience in classical, jazz, noise, theater music, and beyond, The Evolution of the Arm combines the subtle precision of notated concert music performance with the wild spontaneity of free improvisation, superimposing or moving seamlessly between these extremes in their original compositions. The instrumentation of oboe, piano, violin, and cello allows unique timbral amalgamations, while their heterodox approach to counterpoint and form manifest as a kind of doppelgänger of classical music—built from the flotsam and jetsam of Baroque intricacy and Romantic lyricism.
