Amy Rubin & Friends in Motion
Nonsequitur presents pianist, composer, and photographer Amy Rubin & Friends in Motion, featuring Matthew Weiss, violin; Jacques Willis, vibes and percussion; and Alex Sprout Guy, viola. VJ Hugo Solis joins the ensemble in the premiere of Rubin's new work The Hidden Life of Flowers, in which he uses a computer to manipulate and transform Amy's photographs in real time. The rest of the evening is devoted to music by the late, great Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla, who almost single-handedly reinvented the tango with his bold mixture of jazz and classical elements.
