Giardullo’s G2 ensemble performs TRIANGLE / CIRCLE / SQUARE: New G2 Compositions in Open Music. G2 is the result of “years of investigations” into George Russell’s Lydian Chromatic Theory of Tonal Organization, creating an ensemble that explores large group dynamics and creativity via diverse instrumentation and improvisation. G2’s music is made of “independent ideas that, collectively, let emergent ensemble properties reveal themselves.

“Giardullo is willing into existence a music that occurs beyond his control. Giardullo is finding a way for musicians to be themselves while serving a larger cause.” – John Szwed, Signal To Noise
