About

For saxophonist Steve Coleman, music is not a separate discipline from any other activity created by people, but a form of energy, a holistic part of the entire vibratory spectrum, from micro to macro. This MacArthur Foundation “Genius” Award-winner’s unconstrained and preconceived compositional techniques start with the great African American spontaneous composers, and his global exploration of how humans, animals, and plants communicate gives his refined tonal progressions and disciplined rhythmic structures a distinctive conversational flow. With Five Elements, Steve Coleman takes the expressive possibilities of improvisation to uncharted, intriguing new territory.
