Clarke Robinson is a Bay Area musician and improviser who has spent the last year exploring the possibilities of the modular synthesizer as a performance instrument. Solo sets are unpredictable, ranging from lush ambience to potent noise, sometimes at the same time.

Trouble Ensemble is dedicated to the tradition of invigorating conversation known as improvised music. With west African-inspired sounds of jazz and gospel music, and new sounds innovated from a tradition of experimentation, players use their own musical voices to share stories and truths.
They present arrangements by pianist, composer and arranger Andrew Jamieson, expanded from his solo album Heard the Voice. This album is itself in dialogue with the tradition of African American spirituals and the voices that emerge in rendering them.

Cost: $6-15 sliding
