Feed Your Senses: Bent Frequency
80 Forsyth St.
Come have lunch on us and enjoy Bent Frequency, a professional contemporary chamber music ensemble based in Atlanta. Founded in 2003, the group brings the avant-garde music tradition to life through adventurous programming, the promotion of New Music, and a creative synthesis of music and media. www.bentfrequency.com
Percussionist Stuart Gerber and saxophonist Jan Berry Baker are Co-Artistic Directors of BF and also represent The Bent Frequency Duo Project: a subset of the larger group designed primarily as a touring ensemble. The BF Duo has premiered nearly 20 new works for this instrumentation since 2013. They have presented performances in multiple tours on the East Coast, across the Midwest, in Texas, Colorado, the Southeast and internationally in Nuremberg, Germany.
In 2015/16 the BF Duo Project will be heard at multiple venues in North and South Carolina, including the New Music Greensboro Festival in the fall, and in Pennsylvania and New York in the spring, including a performance in the famed Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall in March. In January 2016 they will present a tour in France funded by the French American Cultural Exchange (FACE) program. Premieres this season include works by Laurent Durupt (commission funded by FACE) and Dorothy Hindman.
The BF Duo will release their first CD on Centaur records in early 2016.
