In the workshop:
artifacts, the first ‘e l e m e n t s’ edition in several years, explores the mashing of the experimental, classical & ether-jazz genres. The individual songs themselves are experimental in that they combine avant-garde melodies with the human voice.
Contributions from Gidon Kremer, Anders Jormin, Max Roach, Pat Metheny, Reto Bieri, Nels Cline-Tim Berne-Jim Black, Bill Frisell, Ornette Coleman, Jan Garbarerk, Medeski-Martin & Wood, Steve Tibbetts & the Kronos Quartet (amongst others) are being considered for this agglomerative mashup.
