Colin Stetson, Saxophone
Seeing Colin Stetson play is like watching a frantic yet seamlessly choreographed dance. Stetson’s astounding physical engagement with his instruments (chiefly bass and alto saxophones) produces emotionally rich and polyphonic compositions that transcend expectations of what solo horn playing can sound like. He’s equally at home playing in the company of all-star musicians – Tom Waits, Feist, Laurie Anderson, Angelique Kidjo and more – as he is as a solo artist, where his work straddles dark metal, post-rock and contemporary electronic sound.
The Clarice's Visiting Artist Series brings you the Speed of Sound Sessions (S.O.S.), a celebration of musicians who support and promote composers whose work was created in the 21st century and who respond to the contemporary world in which we live. The S.O.S. Sessions are a fun, interactive way to engage with adventurers just like you.
