Earshot: 2nd Century Savage

Presented by Earshot Jazz.

2nd Century Savage is saxophonist, flutist, and composer John C. Savage with electronica artist, Vusac (aka Isaac Peachin). Together they merge contemporary jazz improvisation with electronic instruments and live production techniques. Using interactive software sampling, effect processors, and virtuosic instrumental technique, they have the potential to suspend a single note in space, or to summon the power of an orchestral wall of sound. The results are haunting, transporting, and strikingly novel.

These guys were amazing! Where were you Seattle? I know, I know the HEAT, but, seriously, it was a swirling, intense dose of improvisational magic. Catch them next time.
