Featuring original compositions by Stevie Ehrhardt

Stevie Ehrhardt (guitar), Art Lande (piano), Josh Reed (trumpet), Bill McCrossin (electric bass), Dru Heller (drums)

Art is very excited about this music, the band, and the chance for a hip Dazzle audience to step into the maze.

Stevie's compositions are really interesting offering shapes, puzzles, patterns and things to be found In The Corn Maze. It's fusion that offers a lot of written and improvised adventures. Funky and intricate with tension/release only by way of continuing to move in and through the maze. Art chuckles and says, " this music is nasty!" In the same way that something in the 70's was described as being bad to mean it was exceptionally good.

Come get lost, then found in the Corn Maze.

Boulder Improvisers Collective - BIC

The theme for the evening is Blurring the Division Between Audience and Performer.

The main techique will be Tag Team Orchestration.

Boulder improvisers collective is a loosely structured family of musicians that play in the Boulder area. To be completely honest, this organization doesn't really exist at all, even in name only. With that said, these musicians do play together, and when they do, they are reasonably capable and unquestionably inclined to listen to the sounds that arise. The players make the sounds with intention.

There is interest in forging a relationship with one's instrument, with each other, and with the piece that is emerging. The principles of this phantom organization might be that if one has inclination to play something, he or she is invited to play it, and if not, there is no need to play. There is no music or sound that is particularly encouraged or to be avoided, silence and sound are considered as equals, and the pieces reveal themselves as they do. The playing serves the piece; there is an interest in creating spontaneous communal compositions.

This concert is a tag team orchestration experience. If one musician is tagged by another, they must be silent for one chapter. Poetry, theater, movement and any inconceivable form of artistic or less artful expression may occur. Serious fun could take place. We invite you to join us in the spirit of friendship and adventure.

BIC memebers include:
    Drums: Dru Heller, Amy Shelley, Art Lande
    Sax: Mark Miller, Sam Williams, Anisha Rush
    Trumpet: Josh Reed, Shane Endsley
    Guitar: Ken Burnstein, Doug Khabu Young
