Dear Friends …
For the day of Monsieur Jacques de Molay, I’d like to invite you all for some music for our well being played on the beautiful grand piano at the Miners Foundry, 6 till 9 PM. We all can use some balancing energy these days, at least I feel that.
Come on over, it’s happening next to the remodeled bar in the Upper Gallery, as it’s called. I’ll be doing some new pieces tuned to who is there, some classic jazz and favorites from the world of pop (with a twist, of course!)
Press Release: Ludi Hinrichs Concert at Miners Foundry, 12/5/19
Ludi Hinrichs will perform on Thursday, December 5th, 2019 at 7:30 PM in the Miners Foundry Stone Hall, with special guest Joe Fajen on tabla. The theme will be “DISSONANCE, RESONANCE, AND AWAKING”
Hinrichs says, “I’ll be exploring in a musical context, dissonance and it’s elements, including the friction that arises within us to possibly move to a new awareness (resonance). This process happens all the time in our lives, artistically, and in everyday matters. The recent power shutoffs are a clear example of this process.
I have new material for this concert written for grand piano, trombone, and voice; Joe Fajen will join me on several numbers. It is a great pleasure to have him as a friend and masterful tabla player.
My musical exemplars in the ’60s were those experimenting with dissonant structures, and it was Harry Partch, Terry Riley, Theolonius Monk, and a few others of that era that caught my attention. I‘d like to give a nod to these pioneers. Two pieces I’m preparing for the evening are worth mentioning, as to their influence: A piece on the 5G and wireless phenomena, and a suite dedicated to those incredible little creatures, bees!”
