The UNCERTAINTY MUSIC SERIES, curated by composer and instrumentalist Carl Testa, has presented concerts of improvised, electronic, and experimental music in the New Haven area since 2007. The goal of the series is to provide a venue for local and regional artists who aren’t being actively presented in other venues in the area and to encourage creative exchange amongst artists in New Haven and the region.
BROADCLOTH performs improvised music with a nod to various compositional outlets. Using a unique instrumentation of voice, cello and accordion/recorders, the trio plays from notated, graphic, embroidered, and textual scores in addition to completely spontaneous pieces. Without shying away from virtuosity, Broadcloth creates music that reflects the order of composition and the risk of unpredictable musical interactions. Emphasis lies on establishing a holistic sound that favors cooperation over hierarchy.
The trio of Bontrager, Ludwig, and Wiegand perform improvised music on a collection of early music instruments and homemade electronics.
