Our February Experimental Coffee House
NOELL DORSEY / STEVE NORTON DUO
1642 Beacon Street (Washington Square)
Brookline, MA 02445
NOELL DORSEY is a classical trained soprano who sings with various opera, choral and chamber ensembles around Boston. She also is the lead singer of rock band Guillermo sexo and is a member of the minimalist duo Beautiful Weekend. New to the Boston noise-improv scene, she began collaborating with experimental trio Eat Flaming Death and most recently with Boston improv veterans James Coleman and Jules Vasylenko. Her voice can be heard on Boston death metal ensemble, Ehnahre’s new album.
Boston-based saxophonist STEVE NORTON has been performing and recording for over 30 years, with a bunch of folks to whom he is deeply and forever in debt. His recent work has taken a turn toward more sound-based concerns and investigations into performance gestalt. His focus is on improvisation, which is filtered through a strongly compositional sensibility. Current projects include Duck That, Grizzler, Symptomatic, Kilter, Metal & Glass Ensemble, Spam, and solo performance, as well as various ad hoc groupings.
This program is supported in part by a grant from the Brookline Commission for the Arts, a local agency supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
