About this Event

Bobby Previte is a composer and performer whose work explores the nexus between notated and improvised music. One of the seminal figures of the 1980s New York ‘Downtown’ scene, Previte is the recipient of the 2015 Greenfield Prize for Music and a Guggenheim Fellowship in 2012, as well as multiple awards for composition from the NEA, NYFA, NYSCA, NY State Music Fund, and the American Music Center. Mr. Previte has been an artist-in-residence at the Rockefeller Foundation in Bellagio, Italy, Civitella Ranieri, The Montalvo Arts Center, The Hermitage Artist Retreat, and nine times at the MacDowell Colony. He has given masterclasses at Princeton University, Eastman School of Music, The New School, New York University, SUNY Buffalo, the Walker Art Center, Art and Music Omi, Cornish University, Istanbul University, University of Washington, and Perth University.His original compositions have been recorded and released on Sony, Elektra, Rykodisc, Palmetto, New World, Ropeadope, Tzadik, Thirsty Ear, Cantaloupe and Rarenoise.

Leading a plethora of diverse ensembles from his instrument, the drums, he has stood on stages and collaborated with an unlikely array of leading lights in and beyond the music world, including master composer John Adams, Terry Adams of NRBQ, pantheon filmmaker Robert Altman, country music star Jessi Colter, blues great Johnny Copeland, composer and thinker Lukas Foss, computer music pioneer Lejaren Hiller, seven-string guitar wizard Charlie Hunter, recently re-discovered genius Julius Eastman, Rock author and ambassador Lenny Kaye, Lounge Lizards leader John Lurie, jazz/noise shredder Sonny Sharrock, folk hero Victoria Williams, “Captain Kirk,” William Shatner on Saturday Night Live, maestro Michael Tilson-Thomas, the legendary Tom Waits, and, most recently, rock icon Iggy Pop.

For tonight's performance Previte will be in duo with one of his favorite musicians: organist and saxophone virtuoso KEITH PRAY. Sparks will fly!
