ATHICA Music Night: Points Along the Vectors with Josh Sinton and Shane Parish

December 13, 2022 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Points Along the Vectors
Tuesday, December 13, 2022, 7PM
Josh Sinton (woodwinds) and Shane Parish (guitar) present an evening of real-time creative research and development.
Free – donations to musicians appreciated.
Creative artist and instrumentalist Josh Sinton makes a sojourn from Brooklyn, NY to perform solo compositions and improvisations on baritone saxophone. To cap off a productive year of recording (two solo albums and two ensemble documents), Sinton makes his debut at the Red Room. He’ll be performing a selection of improvisations as well as compositions by Steve Lacy, Dan Penn and Ornette Coleman. Local guitar artist Shane Parish will perform a solo set as well, and to end the evening, Sinton and Parish will perform improvised duos in a first-time, inter-generational meeting.
About Josh Sinton

He’s studied at the AACM and with Ken Vandermark in Chicago, Steve Lacy in Boston and performed with Anthony Braxton, Nate Wooley and Ingrid Laubrock in New York. His primary point of focus has been the baritone saxophone and the intersection(s) of improvisation and composition but can also be heard on bass clarinet and alto flute. His music can be heard at https://joshsinton.bandcamp.com/
About Shane Parish
Shane Parish (Athens, GA) is a self-taught guitarist. He learns on the gig, from friends, from books, from freely exploring, and from teaching. When he improvises in standard tuning, he finds it difficult to not impose conceptual frameworks onto the instrument. So, when he plays free, he prefers to be in unfamiliar alternate tunings so that he is surprised by his “choices” and must relearn the instrument on the fly in order to respond to and develop spontaneous compositions out of the contexts which emerge. Preparations make the adventures even more colorful; he applies paperclips, Nerf darts, clothespins, bells, strips of plastic, etc. to the strings to enlarge the timbral palette of the instrument.
Supported in part by the Classic Center Cultural Foundation, the Georgia Council for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the James E. and Betty J. Huffer Foundation.
