Friday May 12, 2023, 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm$20.00
“One of the moment’s most adventurous and relevant musicians” – New York
“A deeply rational improviser drawn to the unknown” – The New York Times
Innovative pianist and improviser Dan Tepfer brings an updated live performance of his acclaimed album Natural Machines to our newly renovated Buttenwieser Hall. In Natural Machines, Tepfer explores – in music – the intersection between natural and mechanical processes, improvising at the piano and interacting both musically and visually in real time with computer-written programs. Tepfer is deeply rooted in jazz improvisation, and has worked with artists from Lee Konitz to Pharoah Sanders to Paul Motian. Sample his dynamic reimagining of “All the Things You Are” from Natural Machines here.
Concert available for viewing online for 72 hours from time of broadcast.
