Formations is a monthly music series dedicated to fostering the growth of new and improvised music in Milwaukee.


 

Steve Nelson-Raney will debut his Tripolar Soprano Saxophone Improvisations.

After many years of studying, playing and composing, saxophonist and pianist Steve Nelson-Raney has only guarded optimism regarding the future of acoustic music though he continues to be (oddly) excited about practicing daily.

 

Codename: Magenta

Linda Binder - violin
Pat Reinholz - cello
Rick Ollman - guitar, winds, percussion

Codename: Magenta is an all-acoustic trio designed for closely listening audiences in intimate settings. Although their music can take many paths, their major influences are classical chamber music and free jazz improvisation—and of course both of those have been influenced by everything else.

"Our approach: we keep our ears, hearts, and minds open."
