In a year of unique solo performances, cornetist Rob Mazurek’s stands out with this uniquely conceived tribute to trumpeter/composer Bill Dixon (1925-2010). Based in Chicago, Mazurek was last heard in Guelph with Pharoah and the Undergrounds featuring Pharoah Sanders. His solo endeavors reflect his interest in musique concrete and electronic sound manipulation, with his cornet playing augmented by computer programming, electronic effects and keyboards. Like Dixon himself, Mazurek’s brass playing provides a centre of gravity to the shifting soundscape around him, in a music he calls “projections of sound + vision using technology and non-technology to push the limits of universal love wave correspondence.”
