The New Haven Improvisers Collective returns to Firehouse12 to celebrate the release of its new CD, Inflection, bringing two new groups.
Set 1 features the Erasmus Quintet. Electro-chamber-minimalists focusing on eternal rhythms. Intense, Interlocking, hypnotic. Searching for that everlasting ONE.
Set 2 features Mayhem Circus Electric. Extravagant improv lowdown jazz with more expressive rhythms, a nod to the deep groove of electric miles, and a fresh look at the limits and joys of tonality.
NHIC is a far-reaching collective of creative musicians forming into a particular group to play particular music in a particular moment. NHIC holds monthly workshops, sponsors performances of various ad-hoc combinations of NHIC members and hosts visiting jazz and new music ensembles. A growing number of musicians and composers pass through the group bringing insights and enthusiasm from distant corners of the music world. Monthly open workshops welcome new members, new instruments and new ideas. The annual visit to Firehouse 12 showcases a core of the group, presents major new works, and holds a few surprises.
