7/14/10 SARAH WEAVER ENSEMBLE: S/P(L)ACE - THE STONE, NYC

s/p(l)ace is written on notions of "space" "place", their composite emerging realities within the physical and virtual worlds, expansions of real-time into real-space, and the complex dynamics and depths of potentials in these new paradigms on personal and collective levels. The title is also a reference to Sun Ra's "Space is the Place" released in 1973, adapted to the present. The music properties of s/p(l)ace incorporate nodality, spectrum, intercultural dialogue, polyphony, multiplicity, generation, and synthesis.

Musicians: Jane Ira Bloom, soprano saxophone, Ned Rothenberg, alto saxophone, Dave Taylor, bass trombone, Kenta Nagai, shamisen, Jin Hi Kim, komungo, Doug Van Nort, greis/laptop, Gerry Hemingway, percussion, Sarah Weaver, composer/conductor

6/13/10 INSPIRALING: TELEMATIC JAZZ EXPLORATIONS - NEW YORK UNIVERSITY AND UC SAN DIEGO VIA INTERNET

An unprecedented concert of new jazz works with renowned composers and performers for the telematic music medium. Performers were located in New York and San Diego, playing together as one trans-continental ensemble in real-time and "real-space". There were local audiences as well as a world-wide webcast. The music explores elements of jazz fused with artistic properties of telematic technology including multiplicity, heterophony, swing, polyphony, synchronicity, and nodality. The transparent densities and intensities are manifested to create this new music reality of telematic jazz.
