Marilyn Lerner & Nicole Rampersaud - [second piece]

Although the local "jazz" festival is anticipated in some quarters, it seemed that too often there was no home there for adventurous and experimental creators. Thus, out of necessity, the TONE Festival was born to give these touring musicians a chance to connect with local audiences and artists. A collaboration between Burn Down the Capital's Tad Michalak, Ron Gaskin (a.k.a. Rough Idea) and Karen Ng and Daniel Pencer, the goal was to create shows that were rewarding for players and listeners alike. Local pianist Marilyn Lerner has had a lengthy working relationship with Dutch violist Ig Henneman, so it made sense for Lerner to provide the musical welcome for the visiting quartet. Accompanied by trumpeter Nicole Rampersaud, the pair ranged from clonk-notes and purp-toots to whisper-sputters and harplike plucks, each exploring the possibilities to be found on the inside and outside of their instruments.
