CONCERT: Patrick Battstone

Through an Open Door
Observations and Conversations with
Patrick Battstone and Richard Poole.

Pianist Patrick Battstone will be joined with percussionist Richard Poole on vibes, creating a musical odyssey that they term "spontaneous musical conversations". This music is free in form and follows only the instincts and intuitions of both performers. Ethereal in nature, it is both pacifying as well as frightening, minimal as well as profound. Their latest recording, "Through an Open Door", will be available between sets and after the performance.
