NHIC Atlas

by nathanbontrager

Tomorrow night, Saturday November 19, I’ll be playing with an ensemble called Atlas that was formed out of the New Haven Improvisers Collective.  We’ll be playing at 8:30 at Firehouse 12 and immediately following will be another NHIC ensemble, Mayhem Circus Electric.  Atlas is cello, sax (Steve Asetta), clarinet (Adam Matlock), guitar (Bob Gorry), bass (Jaime Lamb), and drums (Steve Zieminski).   The show consists of mostly improvised pieces which have been written by various members of the ensemble.  The uncommon instrumentation has produced some very interesting timbrel outcomes in rehearsal and with each member coming to the world of improvised music from a different starting point there is sure to be great stylistic variety as evidenced by the scope of the compositions.  One ticket gets you into both sets, come support the experimental music scene in New Haven.
