The Warhol welcomes the genre-defying saxophone quartet Battle Trance on a tour supporting their debut release, Palace of Wind. Performing primarily the music of member Travis Laplante, the quartet crosses boundaries and exists loosely within realms of contemporary classical music, avant-garde jazz, black metal, ambient, and world music. The new record challenges conventions of the saxophone as an ensemble instrument. The sonic vocabulary of the quartet has developed through techniques such as circular breathing, allowing them to build continuous, hypnotic waves of sound and intricate textures.
Battle Trance will perform at the Warhol on Saturday, February 7, at 8:00 pm. For more information, or to purchase tickets, visit the Sound Series event page.
