Rhys Chatham at Hunter's Moon Festival

Rhys will be playing the new MAXIMALIST solo on trumpet,
transverse flute and electric guitar
at the Hunter's Moon Festival.

Sunday - October 27, 2013
at THE DOCK ARTS CENTER (Main Theatre)
Carrick on Shannon, Leitrim, Ireland

A genuine New York legend, Rhys Chatham studied under Morton Subotnick and La Monte Young, and played in the drone ensemble The Dream Syndicate with Tony Conrad, before emerging as a minimalist composer. The impact of Punk and No Wave inspired his seminal “Guitar Trio” and other pieces for large guitar ensembles, sometimes involving hundreds of players. In recent years, he has been exploring the trumpet as a medium of improvisation and minimalism. We are delighted to be able to walk the halls of the Dream House again as we did the first year of Hunters Moon with Tony Conrad! Please welcome Rhys Chatham on his first ever trip to Ireland.
