Professor David Fiuczynski will perform microtonal "grooveJamz" with the Planet MicroJam Institute ensemble. "We live in an increasingly connected global village where 75-80 percent of the world's music is microtonal. At the crossroads of new beats, microtonal harmonies, Eastern melodic inflections, and improvisation concepts, new musical ideas are on the horizon. Planet MicroJam collides sonic aesthetics from our increasingly connected global village to create music that sounds like a Gauguin painting—a raw, powerful, and extremely colorful mix of Eastern and Western elements." The Institute will perform three pieces with Rudresh Mahanthappa from his latest CD Gamak, all of which overlap with the Planet MicroJam Concept.
