Grace Goudy Distinguished Artists Series: The Theo Bleckmann- Ben Monder Duo
Start Date: 4/12/2016Start Time: 7:30 PM
End Date: 4/12/2016

Event Description
The Grace Goudy Distinguished Artists Series is proud to present on its last concert of the season two fixtures of the New York City music scene.

    Theo Bleckmann and Ben Monder have frequently toured internationally, creating a unique approach to what might be called “jazz art song,” fusing jazz, classical, ambient music and rock. The duo’s collaborations on their CDs No Boat and At Night as well as on Bleckmann’s Origami and Monder’s Excavation, Oceana and Hydra have garnered great critical acclaim worldwide. DownBeat writes “rarely have such individual musicians sounded so single-minded.”

    Grammy nominated Theo Bleckmann is a jazz singer and new music composer of eclectic tastes and prodigious gifts who makes music that has been described as “from another planet” (New York Times) and “magical-futuristic” (All About Jazz).

    Ben Monder has conducted clinics and workshops around the world and also has served on the New England Conservatory faculty, 2002-05. He has played on a staggering 130 CDs; he has released six solo CDs, including Dust (1997) and Excavation (2000), and his most recent Amorphae (2015). Monder recorded with the late David Bowie on his already legendary album Blackstar (2016).

    All About Jazz writes “A searing interplay between Theo Bleckmann and Ben Monder — either they rehearsed this passage for months, or they have developed a familial telepathy from their years of collaboration.”

      Please join us for an evening of consummate musicianship and enormous fun. The imaginative aural landscapes and collaborative artistry which emerge when the Theo Bleckmann & Ben Monder Duo perform proves that music can defy categorization.
