Mary Halvorson + Colin Marston

When: Thu., Dec. 3, 8 p.m. 2015

The outermost edges of Brooklyn’s experimental jazz and metal underground scenes collide at this enticing evening at EMPAC. Guitarist Mary Halvorson is perhaps the most distinctively adventurous New York jazz guitarist to come along since her mentor Marc Ribot. Called “NYC’s least-predictable improviser” and “the future of jazz guitar” by DownBeat, she studied and worked with saxophonist and educator Anthony Braxton. Bassist Marston is known for his tenure with the death metal bands Behold…The Arctopus, Dysrhythmia, Krallice, and Gorguts and his challenging work in the extreme metal, progressive/experimental rock, avant-garde improvisation, free jazz, new music/modern classical, and ambient genres. (EMPAC’s On Screen/Sound series presents Cally Spooner and Meryn Le Roy December 2.)
