Uncertainty Music Series Says Farewell At Firehouse 12

Special To The Courant

Celebrate a 10-year run of the monthly Uncertainty Music Series, an event that has featured experimental, electronic and improvised music in the New Haven area since 2007. This is the blowout finale of the series, a two-night festival to commemorate the past 10 years of creative music.

The first night features New York avant-garde reed dude, metal head, occasional podcaster, record-label guy and all-around musical omnivore Jeremiah Cymerman's clarinet quartet, also on the bill are experimental vocalist Anne Rhodes, wide-ranging guitarist Chris Cretella, bassist/composer James Ilgenfritz (who's written an opera based on the work of William S. Burroughs), trumpet player/composer Forbes Graham, and accordionist/vocalist Adam Matlock.

The second night will include cellist Junko Fujiwara, collaborating with violinist/improviser Erica Dicker, trumpet player Louis Guarino Jr., multi-instrumentalist percussionist Andria Nicodemou, and electronic composer Carl Testa; and Haitian-born composer/turntablist/percussionist Val Inc. playing solo. Expect a range of experimental and improvised sounds that cover the sonic spectrum with plenty of dynamism, texture and extended technique on display.
