FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23rd 7:30PM: From Finland: ESA PIETILÄ - solo saxophone and electronica concert
Esa Pietilä's multifaceted work on the saxophone is firmly rooted in jazz but touches on many different musical genres while continuously striving for new forms of creative expression.
Pietilä’s solo saxophone expression is heavily influenced by visual arts and poetry, which gives him the platform to shape up the dynamic structure and form of his improvisations. With his inner dialogue of musical thinking regarding improvisation, he combines a musical fantasy world with reality. PIETILÄ explores new improvisational fields of Scandinavian free jazz / avantgarde, ranging from straightforward energetic free playing to colorful ambient sceneries and soundscapes.
Part of 2016-2017 THE INTERNATIONAL JAZZ SERIES, a partnership of the University of Louisville Jamey Abersold Jazz Studies Program and the Clifton Center.
Tickets may be purchased online or at Carmichael's Bookstore (896-6950).
