featuring

Christophe Rocher - clarinet, bass clarinet

 

We welcome the return of Nicole Mitchell and David Boykin to Alternating Currents Live at Woodland Pattern, for this adventure joined by new friends Christophe Rocher, Christian Pruvost, and Lionel Garcin.

 

“Five times over, for this twelfth Transatlantic Bridge: Nicole Mitchell and her flute arrows, the bubbling lava of Christophe Rocher’s clarinets, David Boykin’s avalanche saxophones and Lionel Garcin’s cascading ones, Christian Pruvost and the hydra of his trumpets. This will be a wind ensemble, a swarm intelligence, five funambulists inevitably. Together, they will compose (improvise) a bouquet wrinkled by blows suddenly tempestuous, suddenly becalmed. It’s obvious, their breaths will draw as many Rose of Winds, their wind instruments will also be music compasses. It will take one shift of air, a thousand and one shifts of air. A wind ensemble. And with the blown air moving, with this distillation of breaths, an imperceptible shift of the world’s axis, of its positions, of its dispositions, of its orientations. One may dream.”  —Alexandre Pierrepont, 2016
