Accidental Orchestra | Qabbala::Entanglement—Twelve Compositions Inspired by the Kaballah and Quantum Physics
Michael Moss’ Accidental Orchestra performs the second of three installments of Qabbala::Entanglement on the autumnal equinox, September 20, 2019.
Qabbala::Entanglement is a 12-movement suite inspired by Michael Moss’s long study of Eastern mythology, physics, and Jungian analytic psychology. Using improvisation over an extended compositional structure Moss uses each of the 12 movements to express a sephira or “limb” of the Tree of Life.
The Accidental Orchestra is a cross between a big band and an orchestra. It is jazz from the 21st century standing on and extending the tradition. “Moss’ astute penchant for melding the outside parameters of jazz with imaginative compositions and a wide-ranging improvisational platform delivers the knockout punch (Glenn Astarita, All About Jazz, June 7, 2018).”
The Accidental Orchestra is comprised of a pool of the most exciting improvising artists on the New York scene: Jason Kao Hwang, Rosi Hertlein, Melanie Dyer, Leonor Falcon, Carol Buck, Lenny Mims, Brian Groder, Waldron Mahdi Ricks, Libby Schwartz, Peter Zummo, Steve Swell, JD Parran, Elliot Levin, Michael Lytle, Ras Moshe Burnett, Dave Sewelson, Steve Cohn, Dom Minasi, Chien Chien Lu, Ken Filiano, Bob Meyer, Warren Smith, Michael Wimberly.
