Nasher Sculpture Center presents Soundings: Travis Laplante - In Residence at the Nasher
This Soundings season’s musician-in-residence is saxophonist, composer, and renaissance man, Travis Laplante, who divides his time between Brooklyn and southern Vermont. Laplante is an astonishing technician, extending possibilities of the tenor saxophone into new territories that encompass the avant-garde, contemporary jazz and classical, world music, and beyond, swirled into a transformative artistic experience. His mastery of circular breathing, multiphonics and harmonics is virtuosic, and he’s likely to produce dizzying torrents of sound, it’s music as primal therapy, musician as shaman. As a Pied Piper of improv and the moment, Laplante performances could lead audiences anywhere.
