Third Stream

CAMA Event!
Tom Hamilton
Fifty (or More)
Saturday, May 2, 2009 – 7:30 p.m.
Kranzberg Arts Center (Big Brothers, Big Sisters Building)
501 N. Grand Blvd.
Unless otherwise noted, tickets to all shows are $15 regular admission, $7 for students with a valid ID.

Descriptive terms like “multi-media”, “eclectic” and “experimental” come to mind when I think about the work of electronic composer and longtime NMC performer, Tom Hamilton. Aside from his own solo compositions and improvisations,  his collaborations have enhanced the work of opera composer, Robert Ashley, the paintings of Bill Kohn, the videos of Van McElwee; and he has enjoyed a close musical rapport with instrumentalists as diverse as classical flutist, Jacqueline Martelle, new music improviser, J.D. Parran, and experimental percussionist, Rich O’Donnell.

Saturday’s performance (5/2) will be sure to follow right in line with any expectations you might have that music should always contain the unexpected. In a very brief description: Pre-recorded musical excerpts will be processed and manipulated spontaneously by Tom Hamilton in a collaborative interaction with a widely diverse group of “live” performers (Tom Brady – performance artist; Robert Fishbone – tape & voice; Rich O’Donnell – percussion; Dave Stone – saxophones; Scott Bryan – percussion & guitar; Zimbabwe Nkenya – bass & kalimba; Tony Renner – guitar.)

Don’t miss this one!
