Featuring DBR (violin), Wynne Bennett (keyboards), and Elan Vytal, aka DJ Scientific (turntables, laptop)
Thursday, April 2, at the Exploratorium

Don’t miss elected solo and duet works from DBR’s recent album from Thirsty Ear Recording,
etudes4violin&electronix, and from the critically acclaimed Sonata for Violin and Turntables, conceived by DBR and co-written by DBR and his long-time collaborator and contemporary music remixer extraordinaire, Elan Vyta. A musical exploration between contrasting cultures and instruments of classical and pop music genres, the program speaks to the history and traditions of both, and the violin,the keyboards, the turntables and the laptop sing, battle and rhyme together, honoring a full spectrum of musical inventions.

Having carved a reputation for himself as an innovative composer, performer, violinist, and band leader, Haitian-American artist Daniel Bernard Roumain (DBR) melds his classical music roots with his own cultural references and vibrant musical imagination. As a composer, his works range from orchestral scores and chamber pieces to music for film, the theater, modern dance, and electronica. In 2007, DBR premiered One Loss Plus, the first of three works commissioned by the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) for their Next Wave Festival. Showcasing his wide-ranging eclecticism, One Loss Plus is DBR's evening-length, multimedia work for electric/acoustic violin, prepared/amplified piano, electronics, and video.
