Several current composition graduate students and recent alumni will be featured on an upcoming performance by Patchwork, a sax and drums duo comprising Noa Even and Stephen Klunk. Sharing the stage with Patchwork are Aaron Myers-Brooks (PhD ’14) performing original compositions for electric guitar, and How Things are Made, the improvisational/conceptual trio featuring Matt Aelmore (PhD ’15), doctoral candidate Brian Riordan, and multidisciplinary innovator David Bernabo. Filling out the bill is Radon Chong, frequently described as Pittsburgh’s answer to Captain Beefheart.
Cleveland-based Patchwork collaborates with composers to build an eclectic body of new music. Since forming the group in 2013, Even and Klunk have commissioned over a dozen works for their unique instrumentation. Their Pittsburgh show takes place November 30 at brillobox beginning at 9 p.m. The 21+ show is $7 at the door.
