8:30 PM The Lost Shapes
A composer's collective of the Bay Area's finest creative musicians. The lost Shapes play mind-blowing original compositions lead by drummer Jason Levis.
The music of composer, drummer, and percussionist Jason Levis lives in the rich spaces where styles intersect and musical languages merge. His career began playing guitar in a high school reggae band, and he has since broadened his artistic scope to include jazz, contemporary improvisation, and modern classical composition. His wide-ranging creative efforts are skillfully bound by his innate sense of timbre, sonic space, rhythmic force, and his insatiable interest in discovery. Over the years his passion and curiosity have led him to search out the intersections of musical paths less traveled, and the resulting unique perspective is reflected in his music. Levis holds a Ph.D. in composition from the University of California, Berkeley and currently teaches at the California Jazz Conservatory. He is active as a performer and composer in the United States and Europe.
Beth Schneck - alto saxophone, Max Miller-Loran - trumpet, Mark Clifford - vibes, Safa Shokrai - double bass, Jason Levis - drums
