Battle Trance Concert


From Dylan Awalt-Conley ’15:

Battle Trance is a tenor saxophone quartet (all tenors!) started by
Travis Laplante of Little Women. With a single shared tonal range,
individual instruments and instrumentalists dissolve into cascades of
disembodied, fluttering melodies. Think a hydra-headed Colin Stetson,
filling the Chapel with walls of sound, flighty shrieks, and
barely-there ambient textures.

You can take a listen here.

The student group Cosmos will be opening with the creative musics of
Eriq Robinson, Matt Chilton, Sean Winnik, and Dylan Awalt-Conley. We
also have a couple of saxophones.

See you there!

Alex Donesky ’15 sends the invitation!

Did this past weekend’s festivities leave you exhausted, agnostic and a lil bit nauseous… and yet eager for more triptastic spiritual journeys? This Thursday night you can relive all of those highs and none of those lows all while resting your still weary body in the cozy seats of Memorial Chapel. Alum’s Ishmael and their friends Slim Charles will be kickin’ things off with some math-rock insanity. And then Dawn of Midi will proceed to blow your mind and help you piece everything back together.

Come check it out.

The Sound of Nostalgia

From Romance Languages and Literatures Department:

Nostalgia could be said to be the insuppressible desire to stay in contact with one’s homeland: the need to maintain one’s identity and memories, while avoiding the transformation that every journey inevitably presents. In this sense, music can represent a very important link to the past. The concert will explore the emotive side of the emigration experience through the performance of pieces associated with immigration to the Americas, and through the narration of texts by the great, 20th-century Italian author Cesare Pavese among others.

Flute: Sara Bondi
Piano: David Revuelta
Music by Martín y Soler, Lovreglio, De Lorenzo, Casella, Rota and Piazzolla

Date: Today, Thursday, February 20
Time: 8 P.M.
Place: Memorial Chapel
Cost: Free
