GUELPH The Burnt Sugar Arkestra Chamber, a New York-based improvisational music ensemble, brings its pan-stylistic sound to the University Centre Courtyard at the University of Guelph, on Friday March 28 at 12:00 PM. This noon hour concert event is open to the public, is free of charge, and will be a live-to-air event, broadcast simultaneously on CFRU 93.3 FM.
Burnt Sugar forges its own musical hybrid by combining various styles, eras, and genres with the use of cutting-edge music technology to explore the connective tissue binding jazz, rock, funk, 20th century composition, and African music in a lyrical, seductive, exploratory, improvisational manner.
Noted author, music writer, and Burnt Sugar founder Greg Tate uses conduction an interpretative system developed by Lawrence "Butch" Morris to guide the band through improvisations on each of its song forms. As a result, each performance is an original mutation in tune with the collective personality of the audience, as well as the individual character and talents of the players.
The event is co-sponsored by the Guelph Jazz Festival, CFRU 93.3 FM, and the University of Guelph's Central Student Association.
