Mark Dresser and Raz Mesinai

Raz Mesinai’s music is a unique synthesis of modern composition, cinematic sensibility, freeform electronics and a contemporary take on ancient shamanic and trance traditions.

Mark Dresser is a Grammy nominated, internationally renowned bass player, improviser, composer, and interdisciplinary collaborator. At the core of his music is an artistic obsession and commitment to expanding the sonic, musical, and expressive possibilities of the contrabass.

Editor’s Note: Originally listed as: Mesinai explores the human voice through a microscopic lens, premiering a new piece inspired by the enigmatic book “Seth Speaks,” in which author Jane Roberts experiences a prolonged conversation with the disembodied spirit “Seth.” Composed of scrupulously edited text from their conversations, Mesinai’s work creates a tapestry of otherworldly communication. Featuring the versatile vocalists Jessika Kenney and Haleh Abghari.
