New York saxophonist Bonnie Kane/W.O.O. (Whole Other Orbit) in a quartet with Blaise Siwula, Ray Sage and Will Redmond.

Within the moment of creation
is a clarity of space/time
where the self is immersed with the other
and as a true being and soul
you are the purity and truth of the infinite
    come hang with us in the energymindmeld

Artist Biographies:

"Blaise Siwula. Born 02-19-1950 in Detroit, MI.

I have been involved with the arts for most of my life. I began studying the alto sax at the age of 14 in middle school and have been playing/ studying in varying capacities since.

After periodic explorations of drama, poetry, architecture, visual art, a B.F.A. and a M.F.A. and a stint in Europe, I arrived in NYC in 1989 with my family and an alto sax.In the past 26 years I have been actively involved with the NYC Improv Scene: Amica Bunker, the Improvisers Collective and most recently the C.O.M.A. series at ABC No-Rio since 1998.

As a composer I have incorporated traditional musical scoring techniques with visual/graphical and performance oriented presentations and a simple philosophy- sound and vision are inter-related in life and art resulting in communication.

As a performer I have been honored to perform in a number of states in the USA and Canada as well countries such as Great Britain, Holland, Switzerland, Germany, Romania, Poland, Croatia, Morocco, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, The Philippines, Portugal, Mexico, Slovenia, Denmark, South Korea and Austria.

Although primarily an alto saxophonist I play a number of reed, flute, percussion and string instruments at varying degrees of competency per composition requirements and recently began including computer altered sound files in performance as background for improvisation.Currently my instruments of choice are:Alto, Tenor & Soprano SaxophonesBb Clarinet, Eb Alto Cl & Bb Bass Cl

This has resulted in my performing and collaborating with an extreme variety of types of improvised musicians including...
