In the spring of 2015 Wayne Horvitz, with long time collaborators Eric Eagle (drums) and Geoff Harper (bass), spent a week in residence at Snowghost Studios in Whitefish, Montana.
The trio will perform selections from the Snowghost Sessions live. The concert is presented as a partnership with the Department of Music and Bellingham’s Jazz Project.
“I’ve never felt so free of expectations in the recording studio in my life” says Mr. Horvitz. “The sessions were relaxed, creative, and without a specific goal. We didn’t set out to make a record, we just set out to enjoy the process. I brought in a pile of tunes and sketches, and started making music. The only thing I knew was, I wanted to work with Eric and Geoff, and I wanted find an organic marriage between the idea of a piano trio, and some ideas I’d been exploring with amplified and processed piano.”
Wayne Horvitz is a composer, pianist and electronic musician who has performed extensively throughout Europe, Asia, Australia, and North America.
