    www.clairo.com A musician since childhood, the Bay Area-based Garren Sean played the violin until he was 10 years old, when creative restlessness took hold. After quitting formal lessons, he taught himself how to play guitar and experimented with recording equipment provided by his father, who worked in music production; while his mother introduced him to classic soul and R&B, his father turned him on to classic rock and 80s funk. From there, he studied the techniques of Eddie Van Halen and Jimi Hendrix, who Garren counts as formative influences. That sense of diversity and exploration shines through Garren's music, from his work with others (producing the Future-assisted standout "Smoke Break" from the Chicago rapper's Grammy Award-winning album, Coloring Book) to the sounds heard throughout the artist's debut offering, GARREN, LP. From the glistening, open-skies synths of opening track "Found" to the limber funk of "Lift Off" to the tricky sense of melody (check out the warped tones and elastic vocals of "There She Go"), GARREN, LP is sure to gain the notice of anyone looking for fresh sounds that feel utterly classic.

    New Music. New Jazz. Curated by John Zorn. The John Zorn Commissioning Series celebrates Zorn’s revolutionary venue, The Stone, a non-profit venue that was “dedicated to the experimental and avant-garde,” and served as a vital spot for new-music in Manhattan’s Alphabet City for over a decade. Held on the last Wednesday of every month, National Sawdust honors the spirit of the Stone, hosting the world premiere of new works. A wealth of talent from Indigenous America takes the stage, as celebrated White Mountain Apache violinist Laura Ortman performs in collaboration with multi-instrumentalists Raven Chacon (Navajo) and Timothy Long (Choctaw). As a long-time performer and master of indigenous tradition, Ortman has performed and educated audiences around the United Stated and beyond, from the Whitney Museum to the San Francisco MoMA to France’s Centre Georges Pompidou. Ortman and Chacon are long time collaborators of improvised recordings and have performed together in New York, New Mexico, Toronto, Vancouver, Berlin and California. Timothy Long was the conductor and co-producer of the Coast Orchestra, an all-Native American music ensemble founded in 2008 by Laura Ortman.

    Jen Shyu — Voice Kiera Duffy — Voice Caroline Shaw — Voice $50 Festival Pass! See all three nights for $50 The second night of the Resonant Bodies Festival opens with composer/performer Jen Shyu presenting her solo work Nine Doors; operatic superstar Kiera Duffy will make her RBF debut, presenting a variety of pieces curated for the Festival; and Pulitzer Prize-winner Caroline Shaw (of Roomful of Teeth) will perform works of her own composition. Resonant Bodies Festival was founded to catalyze the creation of new vocal music, to expand the audience for new vocal music, and to challenge and transform the role of the vocal recitalist. Since its inception in 2013, RBF has been greeted with sustained critical acclaim and the delight of audiences and vocalists alike. For three nights every September in New York City, nine vocalists are given curatorial carte blanche over a forty-five minute set. This freedom—rarely granted to vocalists in the contemporary music world—gives each show a “happy zealousness, where the singers’ enthusiasm for their repertoire [is] contagious” (Sequenza 21). Thanks to a generous grant from the Ellis L. Phillips Foundation, RBF had its Australian debut at the Melbourne Recital Centre on May 17, 2017, which was greeted with much enthusiasm from the international vocal music community. Since then, RBF has expanded to include festivals in Chicago and Sydney, with an LA festival slated for 2019. In addition to the festivals, RBF reaches 25,000+ listeners around the globe through MRMR, the Festival’s extensive collection of online resources. MRMR includes: professional audio, video, and photo documentation of each Festival; Resonant Bodies Podcast, which features in-depth interviews with vocalists year-round; and the Contemporary Vocal Music Database, an open, crowdsourced, searchable index of 20th and 21st century vocal works with links to musical scores, as well as audio and video recordings. The Database aids composers in promoting their works to a larger audience, and assists vocalists in their search for new and meaningful repertoire. Jen Shyu is a groundbreaking, multilingual vocalist, composer, producer, multi-instrumentalist, dancer, 2016 Doris Duke Artist, and was voted 2017 Downbeat Critics Poll Rising Star Female Vocalist. Born in Peoria, Illinois, to Taiwanese and East Timorese immigrant parents, Shyu is widely regarded for her virtuosic singing and riveting stage presence, carving out her own beyond-category space in the art world. She has performed with saxophonist and 2014 MacArthur Fellow Steve Coleman since 2003 and has...
