Composer Adam Rudolph returns with another series of Go: Organic Orchestra at Roulette. In concert he will conduct between 20 – 35 musicians in a spontaneous way, using a newly created score of music/letter grids, language themes, tone rows, traditional and synthetic scales, diadic and intervalic harmonies, The compositions will also utilize Rudolph’s rhythm concept of “Cyclic Verticalism” to generate form and weave what he calls an “audio syncretic music fabric”. The music is “organic” in the sense that the compositions and conducting exist as an inspiration and context for the musicians to express themselves by using their instruments as an amplifier for their inner voice.

Forging a new acoustic sound that defies categorization while striking universal chords, Tin Hat from San Francisco makes freewheeling chamber music for the 21st century. Garnering widespread critical acclaim for its six CDs, the group has also earned high marks for their captivating performances. Tin Hat’s international audiences have grown over the years through its many concert tours in the United States and Europe. Hailed by the press for “interweaving Old World Europe with post- modern America, south-of-the-border sensuality with concert-hall propriety, and odd-metered syncopation with deeply soulful grooves” (The New York Press), the ensemble has created an original American ethnic music of its own device.
