Ben Neill (mutantrumpet/electronics,) with John Conte (bass) & Jim Mussen (drums,) presents XIX, a concert of music and interactive video (in collaboration with artist Bill Jones) based on samples of 19th century music and art. Short fragments from works by Beethoven, Berlioz, Chopin and others are digitally expanded and reworked into new compositions for Neill’s ensemble. As a composer, performer and inventor of the mutantrumpet, Neill has recorded seven CDs of his music and has collaborated with Page Hamilton, David Behrman, John Cale and Coil, among others.
