IVAN CUNNINGHAM’S SHARK BATH

WITH LEE TRAN’S INFINITY TIGER

PRESENTED BY CHRIS BATES

Hosted by Katia Cardenas
$10 admission. $5 with student ID.

Ivan Cunningham’s Shark Bath will be playing a night mostly original music and covers of Henry Threadgill and Alex G. A night of skeletal templates of composed music that is made complete by interjecting spontaneous free improvisation in between more concretely composed reference points. The goal of the improvisation is often to reach the composed music naturally. This group aims to explore many different possibilities of sound in it’s most abstract as well as in it’s most natural and tuneful form.

Ivan Cunningham – Alto Saxophone
Riley Swain – Bariton Saxophone
Lee Tran – Guitar
Alma Engebretson – Cello
Nicholas Christenson – Bass
Tarek Adbelquadar – Drums
