Musicians Patrick Crossland and Alexander Frangenheim present a program of new music for the rarely heard combination of trombone and bass.
Trombonist Patrick Crossland has worked with prominent composers and conductors including Pierre Boulez, Vinko Globokar, and Lorin Maazel. Notable solo performances include the Walker Art Center’s “Festival Dancing In Your Head”, the Darmstadt Course for New Music, where he was awarded a Solo Performance Prize, the “Utopia Jetzt!” Festival, UMBC’s Livewire Festival, and the High Zero Festival. He has performed with orchestras and ensembles across Europe and the United States. He teaches in UMBC’s Department of Music.
Alexander Frangenheim, a classically trained bassist, has worked as an improvisor since the late 1980s. He has played with many leading musicians from around the world and has also been a key figure in the field of collaboration with dance, working with Julyen Hamilton, Nigel Charnock, Benoit Lachambre, Fine Kwiatkowski, and Jose Luis Sultan. Frangenheim was member of the ensemble Zeitkratzer, performing Metal Machine Music by and with Lou Reed as well as music by alva noto, Merzbow, Lee Ronaldo and Elliott Sharp. He can be heard on 10 of the ensemble’s CDs.
