A streamed screening of Rova's live-in-the-studio performances of the works included on our newest CD, The Circumference of Reason. The streaming event will premiere at 7PM Pacific time, and be available through the weekend, ending Sunday Oct 24 at midnight.
Join Rova members in Chat Room to comment, and to discuss and answer questions during and after the initial screening.
Steve Adam’s title track, "The Circumference of Reason", teasingly invokes minimalism, as expressed by a Rova composer. Other works in the set feature the Quartet in more jazz-charged worlds. Of special interest is a signature Rova group composition, "NC17", another in the series of the band’s structured improvisations. These collaborative works employ a seemingly endless set of visual and aural cues derived or adopted by the Quartet. A unique and palpable sonic architecture is intrinsic to each new performance of NC17.
