"Studies In Gravities": A Concert of New Music @ Current Space (Baltimore)

Join us for a night of playful new music and improvisation performed by a LOT of people.

Reedswarm
An ensemble of approximately 14 musicians on low reed instruments buzzing and rumbling and wailing on new compositions by James Young and Jessica Keyes.

Signal Towers
A large ensemble of directional instruments playing a new composition by Patrick McMinn.

Before, Beside, Within
An improvisational chamber quartet featuring Zack Branch (cello), Jamal Moore (bass clarinet), Derrick Michaels (tenor saxophone), and Derek Wiegmann (double bass). The music comes from exploring how the relationship we have with ourselves changes and evolves--whether we are aware of it or not.

Current Space
$5-$10, doors at 7:30pm
