Active Music Series presents:
- Jordan Glenn's BEAK
- A field folded (Widow & Wilson Shook)
- Usufruct (Polly Moller Springhorn & Tim Walters)

Jordan Glenn's BEAK is a percussion-heavy ensemble that blurs the line between dynamic/energetic grooves and chaos. The power of this electric ensemble is wheeled by Jordan Glenn’s curious baton, moving in and out of composed and spontaneous material. https://jordanglennbeak.bandcamp.com

A field folded: Widow (A. Vitacolonna, microphone, bells, movement) and Wilson Shook (woodwinds). Sound, movement, space. Listening and choice. Dissonance and pleasure. Grasping the contours of possibility in a hostile environment. A field folded.
"This stone is you, this fire is you, this departure is you." - G. Luca

Usufruct (YOO-zoo-fruckt) is the right of the people to harvest the fruits of common property. The duo Usufruct, consisting of flutist, composer, vocalist/improviser Polly Moller Springhorn and computer musician Tim Walters, deconstructs, lovingly reassembles, and improvises around found texts and musical materials in the public domain.
