as part of the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra's experimental Liquid Music series.
Jazz musician Reid Anderson (The Bad Plus) goes electronic with The Rough Mixes, a 65 minute piece for strings, percussion and electronics. For the world premier this June 18 and 19, Reid Anderson, performing the electronics live, will be joined by a mélange of high-class strings (including SPCO concertmaster Steven Copes on violin, Sunmi Chang and cellist Anthony Ross) and the percussionist Jeff Ballard. The show will be supported by a multimedia video installation performed in real time by visual artist Cristina Guadalupe and inspired by the fencing match between the analog and electronic worlds in the music. Here: The Music Room at SPCO Center, Downtown St. Paul, Minnesota, USA.
