About the Event
Glenn Dickson's music has been described as "ineffably beautiful" and as "an ever-evolving sound-sculpture." Glenn has had a varied career playing klezmer, jazz, rock, Balkan, and ambient music on his clarinet. His klezmer band, Shirim Klezmer Orchestra, has performed concerts and festivals across the US, Canada and Europe, with recordings including the “Klezmer Nutcracker” and a collaboration with Maurice Sendak, "Pincus and the Pig." Glenn's klezmer-fusion band, Naftule’s Dream, has recorded for John Zorn’s Tzadik label and played major jazz festivals in the US, Canada and Europe, including the Berlin, Montreal and New York Jazz Festivals. His music has been used by Woody Allen (Deconstructing Harry soundtrack), and Glenn was a klezmer soloist on the soundtrack of Sidney Lumet’s film “A Stranger Among Us.” Glenn has been awarded a Massachusetts Cultural Council Fellowship Award in music Composition.
"At a time when so much seems to divide us, the spiritual impact of this music seems to pull people together, to invite not just listening to our own heartbeats, but to the world around us. If only for that, this is a wonderful antidote to divisiveness, and a wonderful accompaniment to being." -Ari Davidow, KlezmerShack
“Dickson essentially meditates through his instrument, creating an hour of sacred ambience that seems to be setting a table for a meeting between the corporeal and spirit worlds.” - Michael Toland -The Big Takeover
“I’m often reminded of elements of Fripp and Eno’s Evening Star, except for solo clarinet instead of electric guitar, as many similar structures follow their own paths and eventually just fall into place magically.” - Peter Telen,-Exposé
Post Moves is the Avant-Americana project of composer and multi-instrumentalist Sam Wenc combining pedal steel guitar, vibraphone, synths and field recordings for an endlessly inventive combination of curiosity, wonderment and reflection. Soundscapes rooted within "folk"music, but also free to drift beyond the periphery. Wenc has released music on labels such as Noumenal Loom, Obsolete Staircases, Where to Now (UK), Moone Records, his own label, Lobby Art, and is currently pursuing an MFA in Music & Sound at the Milton Avery Graduate School of the Arts at Bard College
"New Avant-Americana horizons from Sam Wenc’s Post Moves, meshing folk music with aspects of spiritual jazz, post-rock and avant minimalism in a way that beautifully transcends the sum of its parts." - Boomkat
"Transcendence sits at the centre of Heart Music. It is present both in the intention to move beyond traditional conceptions of folk music, and the meditative, almost spiritual form of deep listening such a style encourages. An invitation to sit with conflicts and inconsistencies in order to understand more fully” - Various Small Flames
“Scratchy sonic reveries are broken down into haunting visages, remembrances of another time translated into whispered codes. Sam Wenc’s Post Moves project uses a timeless palette to explore the furthest reaches of folk music and concoct an alien dialect that uses resonant shapes to share messages across time” - Foxy Digitalis
