Friday, February 8, 8pm *$10

Abram Mamet is a composer and horn player born in Denver, CO and based in Washington, DC. He is lucky to count among his many teachers John Clark (NYC, Gil Evans Big Band), Vincent Chancey (NYC, Sun Ra Arkestra), Morris Kliphuis (Amsterdam, Kapok), Manuel Collazzo (Colorado Springs, Air Force Band), and Franz Sollner (Austria, Vienna Philharmonic). He plays jazz, avant-garde, classical, and popular music.

Daniel O’Connor is a composer and percussionist from Virginia. Their work confronts questions of musical form, perception, and embodiment, ranging from extended chamber works to anarchic free improvisation. Daniel studies composition and percussion at Bennington College and maintains a busy schedule as an improviser/performer.

Aaron Leitko is the co-founder of Washington, D.C. duo Protect-U, who have released records on Future Times, Planet Mu, 1432R. Solo, he performs using a modular synthesizer, improvising dense and percussive compositions meant to evoke the alien energy of electro and the occult of nature.
