Project One, in collaboration with Issue Project Room, presents The Aura Electric, Opus Three, featuring the Mat Maneri / Randy Petersen Duo—two of the most innovative and distinctive artists on the downtown improvised scene—and the Project One Ensemble performing works for electric string quartet (George Crumb’s Black Angels and a world premiere by Michael Spassov). Opus Three will take place on Saturday, November 19, 2005 at 7:00 pm at Issue Project Room in Brooklyn. The Aura Electric, Opus Three explores the sound worlds of amplified strings by juxtaposing different approaches to composed and improvised ‘electric chamber music’. The relationship between composed and improvised music as well as the role of technology in music will be expanded through a discussion with the artists and audience and in a program essay whose departure point is Walter Benjamin’s concept of the aura of a work of art.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
