Changing Tides: A Telematic Translocational Concert Series: Concert 2 San Diego/Zurich

Mark DresserOnTour

Changing Tides: A Telematic Translocational Concert Series is a dynamic musical collaboration among world-renowned improvisers that will bring attention to the powerful role of intercultural collaboration in addressing global environmental concerns. 

Telematic music is live performance via the Internet by musicians in different geographic locations. This year-long project will feature a core ensemble in San Diego, CA performing three concerts, each a month apart. For each concert, a different ensemble in a remote location will perform live with the California musicians via high-bandwidth, Internet2 networks. Culminating many years of immersion in telematics and jazz-inspired traditions, this project will set a new artistic precedent by establishing innovative connections among collective, improvisatory performance practices, cutting-edge internet technologies, and our shared dependence on the environment.

in Zurich: Matthias Ziegler-flutes, Gerry Hemingway-drums/percussion

In San Diego: Nicole Mitchell, Stephanie Richards, Michael Dessen, Myra Melford, Mark Dresser
