Ned Rothenberg and Hubert Zemler will participate in the 4th edition of the "Supersam +1" project. The artists will perform together on 14 November 2019 at 8 p.m. in the DZiK Club (44A Belwederska St., Warsaw).
“Supersam + 1” is a series of master performances. The project focuses mainly on music, however, it also includes other forms of expression such as: performance, multimedia, monodrama. “Supersam + 1” will present respected Polish and foreign artists whose work is original, experimental and innovative. “SUPER” in the title means that the programme will be based on renowned artists – masters. “SAM” (from Polish, means „alone”, "by himself/herself") refers to the solo performances as well as the creative loneliness. “+ 1” in the title means that each evening will be crowned with a duo performance. In most cases, the artists will meet on stage for the first time.
Ned Rothenberg is a composer and performer. He has been internationally acclaimed for both solo and ensemble works, presented for the past 33 years on 5 continents. He performs primarily on alto saxophone, clarinet, bass clarinet, and the shakuhachi – an end-blown Japanese bamboo flute. His solo work utilizes an expanded palette of sonic language, creating a kind of personal idiom on its own. In an ensemble setting, he leads the trio Sync, with Jerome Harris (guitars) and Samir Chatterjee (tabla), works with the Mivos string quartet playing his Quintet for Clarinet and Strings and collaborates around the world with fellow improvisors. Recent recordings include this Quintet, The World of Odd Harmonics, Ryu Nashi (new music for shakuhachi), and Inner Diaspora, all on John Zorn's Tzadik label, as well as Live at Roulette with Evan Parker, and The Fell Clutch, on Rothenberg’s Animul label.
