About the Program
Sing House
Within Sing House, the score’s quintessential melodies, rhythms, harmonies and textures offer rooms in which musicians extemporaneously sing. In this dramatic architecture, the unique voice of each musician is empowered to individually interpret and also, transcend interpretation to become an originating spirit that is inextricably unified to the composition’s destiny. This is how music grows greater than the imagination of one to become a meta-language of memories, dreams and hope. This is how the compositions of Jason Kao Hwang house imagination, identity, and greater purpose. This is the jazz of Sing House.

Sing House
Andrew Drury – drum set
Ken Filiano – string bass
Chris Forbes – piano
Steve Swell – trombone
Jason Kao Hwang – composer/violin/viola

Amygdala
Amygdala explores cross-cultural language, timbre, and space within expressions focused within while projected outwards. The ensemble is named after the brain’s amgydala, which is a mass of nuclei that governs our emotional responses and memories faster and prior to intellectual interventions. The amygdala is where our survival instincts reside.

Amygdala
Rami Seo – gayageum
Michael Wimberly – djembe, percussion
Jason Kao Hwang – composer/violin/viola
