Uncharted: Oran Etkin Duo with Sasha Berliner
Greenwich House Music School is pleased to present Oran Etkin in its annual Uncharted Concert Series, part of the Baisley Powell Elebash Artists in Residence Program.
Doors open at 7:30
Oran Etkin’s constantly evolving practice originates from his openness to collaboration and to forging deep musical connections that transcend traditional boundaries. For his 2023 Uncharted concert, Etkin has enlisted the young vibraphonist Sasha Berliner (Downbeat Magazine’s 2020 Critics Poll “Rising Star”) to join him in the premiere of their new and as-yet-unnamed duo, employing electronics and mixers to accentuate the merger of Oran on multiple woodwinds – including clarinet, bass clarinet, and tenor saxophone – with Sasha on vibraphone. Etkin and Berliner first performed together in the summer of 2021 at the Hamptons Jazz Festival, laying the groundwork for this project. Now, through their Uncharted residency, they will delve even deeper into the unique sounds their instruments can create in tandem. Their bold compositions, intended for eventual recording, will take inspiration from the natural cycles of decomposition and regeneration, explicitly riffing off motivic and textural development and disintegration. Etkin and Berliner will transform the Greenwich House Music School’s Recital Hall into a custom-built laboratory, aiming to build something absolutely original and truly “uncharted”. Don’t miss this chance to see their experiment come to life for the first time!
