Raised and steeped in the tradition of bebop, Aaron also had the experience of performing with Anthony Braxton and studying with Jimmy Lyons, two icons of avant-garde saxophone. An activist and organizer, Martin is determined to instill his music with the radical and revolutionary message that he developed through his experiences in the movements of the 1960s and ’70s. Performing with Luke Stewart (bass) / Sam Lohman (drums) as Trio 000.

Throughout the month we will present artworks, performances, and discussions dealing with topics like: performance as it is constrained by health challenges; the political power of sound as it relates to feminism, refugee experiences, and social hierarchies; sound as a means of coping with loss; listening as meditative practice; and more.
