Dave Fiuczynski's Planet MicroJam w/ Special Guest Rudresh Mahanthappa
David Fiuczynski's FLAM! Pan-Asian MicroJam for J Dilla and Olivier Messiaen is the result of a 2011 Guggenheim Fellowship. This composition incorporates microtonal birdsong-based melodies; J Dilla-inspired hip-hop beats; and traditional Chinese, Indian, and Turkish melodic and rhythmic elements. At the concert, audience members will see various birds on a video screen, hear their birdcalls, and listen as those sounds are interwoven into the music.
