Consilience and Altruism: Of the Other Way of Thinking and Stephanie Stone
Herb Robertson (trumpet) Marty Erhlich (clarinet, saxophone, flute) David Taylor (bass trombone) Terry McManus (guitar) Mark Helias (bass) Jay Rosen (drums)
“A Bio-Musical Imaginative Theoretical Tribute” written and created by Ana Isabel Ordonez. Improvisational patterns and concepts by Herb Robertson. Design created by Claude Marc Bourget. Performed by The Herb Robertson Sextet. The sense of exhilaration that characterize Herb Robertson’s experiences under improvisational patterns is heightened for his new sextet as storytellers by his complicated and sincere intellectual and emotional active exertion, and by the intensity of struggling with a creative process under the pressure of a steady beat. From the outset of this performance the improvisers will enter into an artificial world of time in which reactions to the unfolding events of Stephanie must be immediate. The consequence of their music and action will be irreversible.
