Artists-In-Residence 2014

Peter Evans

Fri, January 10, 2014 - 8:00pm

ISSUE Project Room: 22 Boerum Place, Brooklyn 11201 Map

Free ($10 suggested donation)

Peter Evans opens his 2014 residency with a solo trumpet performance, a format he has been working with for over a decade. Improvisation is used as a method of pressurizing and slowly refining materials from concert to concert; a process of using the known as a catapult to the unknown that is a central focus of Evans' residency and work in general.

Peter Evans is a trumpet player and composer based in New York City who works across a wide spectrum of contemporary music practices. Since moving to NYC in 2003 Evans has established several small ensembles (Quintet and Zebulon Trio), formed collaborative groups with other composers/improvisors (Pulverize the Sound, Rocket Science) and performed music by both new and established composers. As a trumpet player, Evans has been steadily working to broaden the expressive vocabulary of the instrument for both solo and group contexts. In 2011 he established his More is More label and has released several recordings of his music.

Established in 2006, ISSUE's annual Artist-in-Residence program provides 5 emerging artists each with a year-long residency including rehearsal space, production, curatorial, and pr/marketing support to create new works, reach the next stage in their artistic development, and gain exposure to a broad public audience.

ISSUE’s Artist-in-Residence program is made possible, in part, through generous support from the Jerome Foundation, with public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, and with the support of the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
