About This Event

Wayne Horvitz-Piano and KeyboardsSkerik Tenor SaxAlex Guy ViolinGeoff Harper BassIvn Galvez- PercussionAndy Roth-DrumsThe Royal We began informally playing the late-night set at the Royal Room in Seattle every Wednesday night. The music is highly improvised, working from motifs and compositions by Wayne Horvitz, with an emphasis on grooves influenced by African pop music, 60s modal jazz and open improvisations. The music ranges from almost experimental to almost folkish, but with a singular sound. Originally a quarter with Dave Abramson and Evan Flory-Barnes, the updated version is a sextet with the double percussion and violin added to the mix.Wayne Horvitz is a composer, pianist and electronic musicians. He is the 2016 recipient of the Doris Duke Performing Artist Award, the NEA American Masterpieces Award and three MAP Fund awards. He has been commissioned by the Kronos Quartet, The icicle Creek Trio, The Seattle Symphony, BAM and The Kitchen among others. He is collaborated with, among others, Bill Frisell, Robin Holcomb, Gus Van Sant, John Zorn, and Butch Morris. He appears on over 300 CDs, 30 as a leader.
