For the last 35 years Australian violin extraordinaire Jon Rose has challenged and confronted our conditioned notion of what music should be. He has been an absolute soldier in the improvisational music scene, traveling, playing and recording with artists from around the world. He has also been a strong advocate of technology and it’s use for creative projects, inventing and performing with many unique instruments.

His involvement with STEIM goes back 20 years 25 years. You can read about it here in a post that he wrote for the project blog. Jon returns to STEIM next week to work with our technical staff for two of his projects and also to play two exciting concerts.

Concert one will be on April 7th, with Jon playing a duo with bassist Kato Hideki who is one of the founding member of legendary Japanese noise band Ground Zero. An ad hoc local trio of Alfredo Genovesi, Michael Vatcher and One Man Nation will open the night.

Concert two will be on April 14th, this time with composer/ musician Richard Barrett and a special local guest (UPDATE: It’s Cor Fuhler!). San Francisco based computer artist Barry Threw will also demonstrate the very impressive K-Bow violin sensor bow by Keith McMillen Instruments.
