Event Description

Come and listen to the exhilarating mix of tabla, viola and sitar!

Clear Light Ensemble:
john dubberstein, sitar
samuel claiborne, guitar, viola, voice electronics
tem noon, tabla
david 'dabman' bennett, bass
plus 'special guest', flute

John dubberstein has played sitar for 35 years.
a student of harihar rao, punita gupta, and manilal nag, he
in recent years has taken a tack away from a strictly classical presentation of indian music.
the current music will be featured in support of holographic laser dome projection works.
john also ( when not windsurfing the hudson) performs on vocals and guitar with the Bad Boys Blues Band.

Samuel Claiborne is a poet, novelist, photographer, video artist, essayist, a 2008 NYFA
Fellow in Music Composition, and a regular political commentator for Northeast Public Radio

He co-founded the 'avant-bizarro' electro-acoustic duo 'Loons in the Monastery', who have released several CDs under the Sonotrope label. His newest CD, The Annunciation, is a solo project of piano improvisations inspired by a post-feminist reinterpretation of the Biblical annunciation story. His solo piece 'Viola Breath' will be released as part of the 5 CD NYFA composers 25 year retrospective on Innova records.

He is currently at work on his 2nd novel, Jesusland, and a non-fiction book, Walking Through Snow, about his battle with spinal cord and brain injury.

Reception to follow.
Way fun to miss!
