Sarah Hughes and Nate Scheible are two mainstays within the Baltimore and DC improvised music communities working within and against a variety of genres, from dense, untethered free jazz to delicate, stark minimalism. Hughes and Scheible have been collaborating for the past two years, eschewing the expectations of the typical saxophone and drums duo, and utilizing it as a jumping off point to explore deeper possibilities of sound. This oftentimes involves integrating text, movement, and other non-idiomatic approaches, while still maintaining a sense of self-awareness and humor.
