Expressionist Abstractions: Bay Area Modernism Then and Now in Art and Music
In honor of Richard Diebenkorn and his bold artistic independence, integrity, and exploration, composer and bass player Matt Small leads the Crushing Spiral Ensemble in Wilsey Court. The band features the Bay Area’s best multigenre players performing works from the vast repertoire of Small’s original compositions, which blend modern jazz and contemporary classical aesthetics. Small is one of the groundbreaking voices contributing to the vibrant local new music scene today, keeping modernism alive and well in the Bay Area.
The performance is sponsored in part by the Zellerbach Family Foundation. Matt Small is a member of Intersection for the Arts’ Incubator Program.
