2017 Festival Cancellation

We regret to announce that due to a medical emergency the Infrequent Seams Festival scheduled for June 19-22 is being canceled.

The S.E.M. Ensemble’s June 20 performance “Voices and Instruments: the Music of Petr Kotik & Friends” at Willow Place Auditorium will continue as scheduled. Information on that event is below.

Additionally, some other events will be rescheduled, including the CD release event for Ben Richter. Information on all rescheduled performances will be announced within a few days.

We will be rescheduling the festival. Infrequent Seams Festival 2017 will take place later this fall, and we hope to include as many of the original artists as possible, so stay tuned for updates.

Thank you to those interested and thank you to all the artists who agreed to perform. We look forward to remounting this project in the near future.

* Bassist/Composer James Ilgenfritz approaches the double bass as an archeologist, examining rarified aspects of the instrument's sonic palette to confound the status quo. His work has been praised in Time Out New York, Signal To Noise, All About Jazz –New York, and Downbeat Magazine. Recent performances include work with George Lewis, Pauline Oliveros, Robert Dick, John Zorn, Gary Lucas, Marilyn Crispell, Lukas Ligeti, and Dave Ballou. In 2007 James received a Subito grant from the American Composers Forum for a cross-country tour, performing new semi-improvisational notated works for bass by composers Jeffrey Treviño, Stephen Rush, and Gordon Beeferman. Notable venues where James has performed include The Kennedy Center in Washington DC, The World Financial Center Winter Garden, The Stone, Symphony Space, the New Museum in SoHo, and Edgefest in Ann Arbor, MI. James is Artist In Residence at Issue Project Room in 2011. Improvisation is central to James’s work, and he has written and lectured on the art of improvisation and its metaphorical relationship to the practical complexity of daily life. James is on faculty at Brooklyn College Prep Center and at Brooklyn Conservatory.
