Daren Burns, bassist, composer, and improviser, has been playing and composing music for over twenty years and has played with many notables such as, Wadada Leo Smith, John 'Drumbo' French, Mike Keneally, and Famoudou Don Moye. Much of his musical interest lies in the area of improvisation and how to make new systems for developing improvisation in new ways. In the last few years he has also become interested in Indian rhyth...mic and melodic systems.
Created at CalArts by Daren Burns in 2007, Here No Evol synthesizes its sound by using elements of the Chicago avant-garde, jazz, rock, world, techno, and noise and is committed to the use of live video images to expand the ensemble from sound to sight and to create a multi-sensory experience. Daren's projects have been selected as Brick's Picks of the week in the LA Weekly on numerous occasions.
Jerome Wilson at Cadence Magazine says: Daren Burns is one of the few younger electric bass players I've heard who owes more to Steve Swallow than Stanley Clarke or Jaco Pastorius."
The concert will start promptly at 8PM, with two sets being played, and will end at 11PM.
