On the occasion of the finissage of “Underground and Improvisation”, saxophonist and clarinettist Ken Vandermark and music curator Louis Rastig initiated a workshop octet that presents a veritable who’s who of the contemporary young improvised music scene. Vibrafonist Emilio Gordoa is also part of the ensemble, as are real-time music pianist Magda Mayas and trombonist Mats Äleklint, who together with world-renowned avant-garde trumpeter Nate Wooley form the brass section. Shooting star Mette Rasmussen on the alto saxophone, drummer Steve Heather and internationally renowned e-guitarist Jasper Stadhouders complete the octet. Exclusively for this finissage concert, Vandermark will of his own accord be preparing new arrangements of compositions from the “FMP/Globe Unity” catalogue and creating new compositions for the ensemble in the workshop context.
