Program Description

This is an intense, five-day workshop intended to expand the source materials for use by improvisers and composers to extend outside the normal range of approaches, lead by American multi-instrumentalist, composer, and performer, Elliott Sharp. A central figure in the avant-garde and experimental music scene in New York City for over 30 years, Elliott has released over eighty-five recordings ranging from orchestral music to blues, jazz, noise, no wave rock, and techno. He leads the projects Carbon and Orchestra Carbon, Tectonics, and Terraplane and has pioneered ways of applying fractal geometry, chaos theory, and genetic metaphors to musical composition and interaction.
