Music at Large is a performance series dedicated to interdisciplinary and multicultural productions. Lewis Jordan has collaborated with musicians, poets, dancers and actors for over 30 years, focusing on creative structures for improvisation.

Jordan states "My motivation for the series/group is to introduce a context where performers (and audience) can open themselves to seemingly incongruous elements. The joy is in discovering for ourselves the cultural syntheses that we have previously barely imagined." On February 24th, "Improvisation will be the word of the day. Other words for the day will include freedom, spiritual, homage. While we may not perfect the moment, we will certainly practice it."

This performance of Music at Large will feature Lewis Jordan (saxophone, poetry), India Cooke (violin), Karl Evangelista (electric guitar) and Marshall Trammell (drums).

Addleds -- the quartet of Kyle Bruckmann (oboe/English horn), Tony Dryer (double bass), Jacob Felix Heule (percussion) and Kanoko Nishi (koto) -- explore timbral and textural extremes of distended instrumental technique via improvisation and open-ended compositional strategies. Their music tends towards a brutalist minimalism as informed by the noise underground as by recent developments in the field of free improvisation.

Individually, the members have performed with other groups and regular collaborators across the gamut of new music both local (Basshaters, Ettrick, Ghost in the House, Jacob Lindsay, Pink Mountain, Jon Raskin, Gino Robair, Aram Shelton, Shudder, sfSound) and elsewhere (Michel Doneda, EKG, Boris Hauf, Giuseppe Ielasi, Lozenge, Polwechsel, Jack Wright, C Spencer Yeh). Together, they began developing their collective sound in 2010.
