{SET 1}

 

Jack Grassel & Steve Nelson-Raney Duo

 

Jack Grassel and Steve Nelson-Raney have spontaneously composed music together for 37 years.  At this point in their history there is deep communication in the sound that appears from their relationship of sustained dedication.

 


{SET 2}

 

PaVda + Amanda Schoofs

 

PaVda (Linda Binder and Hal Rammel) formed early in 2015 as an exploration of the shared sonorities of viola d’amore (Vda) and amplified palette (Pa). For this Formations performance they will be joined by special guest Amanda Schoofs (voice and electronics).

 

Amanda Schoofs’ work with voice and electronics, both composed and improvised, create visceral musical experiences that emphasize timbre, presence, and ritual while exposing the raw, brilliant, and intimate qualities of the human spirit. Schoofs is on the composition faculty at University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s Peck School of the Arts, where she directs Contemporary Music Ensemble and teaches composition, theory, and experimental improvisation.
