Gaël Mevel: piano & compositions
Michaël Attias: alto saxophone

In a rare New York appearance, pianist/cellist/composer Gaël Mevel will perform in duo with alto saxophonist Michaël Attias. After several tours and recordings made in France, this will be their first appearance together on this side of the Atlantic. Gaël Mevel’s music lives at the borders of improvised music, contemporary classical, and jazz. Through eight releases as leader of groups ranging from duo to quintet, he has developed a highly original approach to writing for improvisers and created a unique world of considerable poetry, pervaded by silence, calligraphic gestures and surreal humor. He also composes live film scores and music for theatre and dance. More info at this website: www.gaelmevel.com
