Peter Evans

Saturday, December 20, 2014 - 8:00pm

Peter Evans closes his 2014 residency with a solo trumpet performance. 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.

The fourth-annual Swedish Energies celebrates 50 years of Stockholm's EMS with Maria w Horn, Ellen Arkbro, Jenny Sunesson, The Sons of God, Stephen O’Malley, Kristina Matousch, Frederikke Hoffmeier, Carl Michael von Hausswolff, Daniel Rozenhall & Sten Backman, Christine Abdelnour & Joachim Nordwall, & more.
