John Berndt, of Baltimore, is best known as an experimental extended-technique saxophonist, electronic musician, and philosopher. He organizes the Red Room collective and the High Zero foundation.

Tuesday, 9/18

A collaboration of musicians from three continents: Tatsuya Nakatani, percussionist from Japan and now living in the US; Michel Doneda, saxophonist from France; and Jack Wright, saxophonist from the US. The trio has evolved through their touring efforts and their search for new musical experience. This is no ad hoc group, but a story of each player finding those others who will create just the right musical challenge and chemistry, then taking it further.
