October 26; 7PM: Ben Cosgrove //GlobeTrotting Ben Cosgrove is a composer-performer whose music explores themes of landscape, place, and ecology in North America. He has spent years intimately exploring every corner of the country and writing music in response to it. Ben is fascinated and inspired by the different ways people interact with their built and natural environments, and through songs with names like “Prairie Fire,” “Champlain,” “Little Rain,” “Nashua,” “Sigurd F. Olson,” “Kennebec,” and others, he seeks to explore those relationships and reflect them in sound. “I don’t necessarily think of my pieces as rendering places in music, but more just as a way for me to respond to places musically. Writing music just turns out to be a great way for me to process the world.” Cosgrove has held artist residencies and fellowships with institutions including the National Park Service, the National Forest Service, Harvard University, Middlebury College, the Schmidt Ocean Institute, and the Sitka Center for Art & Ecology. His live performances on solo piano are at once dazzling and intimate, the music both delicate and commanding. He performs regularly both as a solo artist and as a sideman, tours widely across the US and Canada, writes scores for films, plays, radio, and television, and has produced several well-received albums of original instrumental music. GlobeTrotting World/Jazz Fusion Grammy winner, and five-time Grammy nominee, Steve Gorn (bansuri flute, clarinet, and soprano sax), is creating a new idiom music that combines the essence of classical Indian tradition with a contemporary world music sensibility. His virtuoso mastery generates a vibrant fusion, alive and accessible to western ears. He has composed for film, television, dance, and theater, as well as performed in concerts and festivals throughout the world with luminaries such as with Paul Simon, Richie Havens, Jack DeJohnette, Paul Winter, and others. Drawing from Indian classical music, jazz, and world music, Gorn’s signature sound infuses a haunting, lyrical sweetness, bringing the healing breath of the sacred to our demanding contemporary lives. Drummer, hand percussionist, and educator Brian Melick has been a featured artist on over 400 commercially recorded works, and has played with many well-known musicians, including Kim and Reggie Harris, Pete Seeger, Jay Ungar & Molly Mason, Bela Fleck, Sloan Wainwright, Bruce Molsky, among others. Melick has created his own series of percussion educational curriculum for various ages and levels of experience, as well as also works with percussion-related companies in different capacities. He is especially known for his work with–and promotion of– the Nigerian Side Hole Pot Drum, affectionately known as the udu drum.
