Making Noise: Angela On The Arts

Join us in the Music Library for our final Making Noise event of the semester featuring Angela On The Arts. The performance is free and open to all. Light refreshments will be served. 

Angela On The Arts plays freely improvised music. The band includes John D’earth on Trumpet, flugelhorn on percussion, Bonnie Gordon on viola and Michelle Oliva on Bass clarinet and loops.  Their jazz-and-chamber-music-inflected sound  vibrates with  a sonic archive early jazz, Miles Davis, Eric Dolphy, Ornette Coleman, early modern modal music, Arnold Schoenberg, John Cage, rock & roll, Charles Ives. All three explore improvisation as a musical practice, an intellectual engagement, and a way to move through the world.  Improvisation is personal, local, mysterious, ephemeral and co-creative. D’earth and Gordon teach in the Music department and Oliva is currently a visiting scholar at the Institute for Environmental Negotiation.  The band looks forward to making noise in the library.
