John O'Keefe (language) Benjamin Kreith (violin) Phillip Greenlief (saxophone) with Pamela Z (voice & electronics)
Pamela Z Arts' intimate avant chamber series is proud to present an evening with playwright John O'Keefe, violinist Benjamin Kreith, and saxophonist Phillip Greenlief. The artists will perform solos and works in various ensemble configurations, and Pamela Z will join them for some duo and tutti moments.
John O'Keefe delivers his prose with such nuance and kinetic energy that his speech becomes a music in and of itself. Benjamin Kreith's violin sings contemporary music with startling range from searing bites to warm fluidity. Phillip Greenlief's saxophone speaks with an expansive sound vocabulary and disarming wit. Together and separately, they will fill the ROOM with sonic surprises and infuse each other's sets with audible interventions and excited utterances.
