Ultra World X-tet – June 13, 2014

Hailed as an “extraordinary world class ensemble” by, Ultra World X-tet combines jazz, world, experimental and contemporary concert styles in a pioneering fusion of East and West. San Francisco Classical Voice says “these formerly exotic elements can become quite familiar and entertaining when theyre so successfully and imaginatively integrated.” Dont miss this exciting cross-cultural experience featuring brand new material, as well as a few favorites from the X-tet repertoire. A highlight of the evening will be the world premiere of Wise Dreams and Fables of the Sky, composed by Gary Schwantes with 16mm film projections by experimental filmmaker Craig Baldwin. The piece is a multisensory experience that reimagines The Odyssey from a global perspective.
