~Nois and Kinds of Kings: Afterimage
Afterimage is a brand new program for the Chicago’s award-winning saxophone quartet ~Nois featuring saxophone works written by each member of the Kinds of Kings composer collective. Exploring themes of contemporary life including riotous nights out, street harassment, displacement and isolation, and living through moments of darkness, “this different blue space” is the first collaboration between Kinds of Kings and ~Nois. The concert will include two world premieres, and Kinds of Kings member Shelley Washington will join ~Nois member János Csontos on her baritone saxophone duet Big Talk. The pieces performed in this program will be recorded and released on ~Nois’s sophomore album. ~Nois’s debut album is set to be released later in 2019.
