FREEJack Straw is pleased to present an evening of new music and conversation with resident artists Peter Vukmirovic Stevens and Tom Baker.Peter Vukmirovic Stevens is in the studio at Jack Straw this month with a quartet featuring members of Tom Baker Saint Helens String Quartet and the Seattle Symphony Orchestra, recording three string quartets for his current Artist Support Program project. On July 21st he will discuss the quartets, as well as his 2014 Artist Support Program project, the solo viola release Feral Icons. Violist Mara Gearman will play selections from the album.

Tom Baker will play recorded excerpts from his recent Jack Straw Artist Support Program project Deeply Lodged, and discuss the compositional process and intention behind the piece. Deeply Lodged explores our relationship to memory: its powerful hold on us; how it changes and warps as it deceives us; the ways in which we share our memories with others; and the fear that our own memory ultimately disintegrates even as we cling desperately to it.

We are about half way through the album production. We have recorded all the music, and what have is simply gorgeous — and at times transcendent.

This album is going to be something very special.

I can’t wait to share our work with you.
