Jeff Kaiser, razor, and clown
Join us! The video premieres 7:30 EST, I will be in the live chat enjoying a cocktail….

Originally scheduled for April 1, 2020, the pandemic interrupted, but the concert will now be virtual!

Free, wild, entertainment. A 30 minute extended improvisation with trumpet and electronics…plus, as a coda, a new piece called: “Music for Electronics, Electric Razor, and Hairy Object.” Score and patch available!

From the website:

“Composer, technologist, trumpet player, shaver, Jeff Kaiser premieres his new work for trumpet, flugelhorn, voice, and electronics: ZEITNOT V, and; Music for Electronics, Electric Razor, and Hairy Object. This music was all performed live, meaning no prerecorded elements and no post-processing: everything you hear is what Jeff was hearing through his headphones performing live at his home studio. Sometimes the signal processing does not pass any of the direct sound of the instruments, so all you hear is the way they are changed by his software.

All software authored by Jeff Kaiser in Max, much of it is available on his website for free: https://jeffkaiser.com/

With the support of the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners, the City of Miami Beach, and the Kimberly Green Latin American and Caribbean Center at FIU. The Betsy Hotel is the official host hotel for the festival.”
