“re-Source” – Christian Swenson & Friends play Human Jazz
A benefit for AS220 Youth Programs
This is not a dance performance, a sacred ritual or a play, nor a musical concert or a comedy show, yet it is in part all of these. It is also homage to the human medium and the spirit that connects us.
Join Christian & his friends as they co-create an evening of spontaneous performance.

“Human Jazz” is about playing the body, voice and imagination simultaneously; no set pieces, special costumes, recorded music, just humans playing. As a soloist Christian “disappears” into songs, animals, characters, body music, aliens, etc. The ensemble will play all together and in smaller groupings. The show will conclude with a participatory Balinese Kecak/Monkey Chant.

I’m excited to connect with a wide variety of improvising musicians at this annual event!
If you’d like to try singing improv with us, this is a very informal gathering of vocalists, singers, players, etc. We like to play with tones, rhythms, spontaneous songs, gibberish, etc. It happens first and third Saturday afternoons.
Here is a Meet-up Group and a Face Book page for more info:
