BHZ Sound and Video Improvisation
April 23, 2017
Studio Z: 275 East Fourth Street, Suite 200, St. Paul
Burke-Hall-Zanter (BHZ); a trio of improvisers who create music and video in performance. In listening to the music, once you relax, let down your guard, and turn your attention towards the minute details – the flux, the minimalist musings, the freeze-frames, the tasty timings – you can move deeper into this highly expressive and intriguing music. The Studio Z performance concludes a series of performances at various venues, Universities, and the Society for Electro-Acoustic Music National Conference. BHZ welcomes St. Paul composer/performer Todd Harper on the performance which is sure to be an eclectic, vibrant event.
