The Julius Hemphill Sextet
Over the past thirty-five years Julius Hemphill has earned a reputation
as one who broke down boundaries and defied labels. A prodigious
composer, who wrote luscious and shimmering sonorities with the
ever-present tang of the blues, Hemphill was as comfortable writing for
full orchestra as he was for his Sextet or Big Band. THE LAST SUPPER AT
UNCLE TOM'S CABIN: THE PROMISED LAND, composed for choreographer Bill T.
Jones and featuring the Julius Hemphill Sextet, toured the United States
and Europe with the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Co. during the 1990-91
season to a chorus of raves. In 1991, Hemphill received a Bessie Award
for each of his dance compositions, LONG TONGUES: A SAXOPHONE OPERA and
of immense talent and saxophonist who could coax the best out of any
musical unit, Hemphill performed in almost every major jazz festival and
hall in North America and Europe, including Berlin, Montreal, Kool,
Rome, Paris, Den Haag (North Sea), and Warsaw. Julius Hemphill died on 2
April 1995.

Dave Douglas and Trisha Brown: An Evening of Improvisation
Two internationally renowned artists- Trisha Brown, the most widely
acclaimed choreographer to emerge from the postmodern era, and Dave
Douglas, composer/improviser/trumpeter who's committed to developing
music which places itself outside of the traditional language of jazz-
will craft an improvisational work for the second evening of the
festival.  Said of their previous collaboration, EL TRILOGY (2000):
"Brown and Douglas seem simpatico in their ability to use structure and
improvisation.  Both appear able to trust their imaginations so they're
not afraid to take risks."  Dave Douglas, musical talents Ikue Mori and
Erik Friedlander and former Trisha Brown Company members Kathleen Fisher
and Keith Thompson will perform the evening's work. www.davedouglas.com

Atsusuhi Nishijima
Atsushi Nishijima received his Bachelor's degree in Musical Technology
from the Osaka University of Art in 1989 and his Master's degree in
Media Art in 2001 from the International Academy of Media Arts and
Science in Gifu. Trained in experimental and contemporary music,
Nishijima creates sculptures and installations that emphasize the idea
that sound, and thereby music, is inherent in all objects and
environments. A particularly important resource for the artist is the
city as a gigantic synthesizer from which everyday sounds are selected
and transformed into a unique "sound" due to "space". Nishijima's work
has been exhibited and performed throughout Japan (solo exhibitions:
Osaka Contemporary Art Center/Ashiya City Museum of Art & History, Hyogo
1992; Dohjidai Gallery of Art, Kyoto, 1998), as well as Singapore, Paris
and NYC ("CITYCIRCUS," New Museum of Contemporary Art, 1994, an
exhibition curated by Laura Trippi).
