Flam! Pan-Asian MicroJam for J Dilla and Olivier Messiaen

"Flam! Pan-Asian MicroJam for J Dilla & Olivier Messiaen" is Berklee Professor David Fiuczynski's Guggenheim composition premiere.

New musical ideas are on the horizon at the crossroads of unusual beats, microtonal harmonies, and Eastern melodic inflections and improv concepts. The aim is to create music that sounds like a Gauguin painting—a raw, powerful, extremely colorful mix of Eastern and Western elements.

"Flam!" is a melodic silk road continuum, a musical journey from the East colliding with rhythms and microtonal harmonies from the West.

"I'm playing with Ehud Ettun in my group for more than a year now and I really love his playing on my music and also his original compositions.We toured with my trio nationally and internationally but I always love to come back playing at the Lily Pad, so together with the Lily Pad we decided to dedicate an evening for both of our bands (mine and Ehud's) and to do it once a month that people can closely follow the bands regularly and enjoy a monthly evening at the Lily Pad." For us, the Lily Pad is a great home for our music." Assaf Kehati
