Guitarist Brandon Ross presents Immortal Obsolescence, a composition series for improvisation inspired by photographic images of Venezuelan artist Carolina Muñoz, performed by For Living Lovers.
For Living Lovers is the acoustic duo of guitarist Brandon Ross and acoustic bass guitarist Stomu Takeishi. Founded in 2002, For Living Lovers developed out of the discovery of a shared musical sensibility and influence of instruments designed by legendary luthier Steve Klein. The duo has recorded and toured the film music of Toru Takemitsu, played the prestigious Saito-Kinen Festival in Nagano, Japan, and released Revealing Essence on Sunnyside Records (2014) to superlative reviews.
Brandon Ross is a guitarist, composer, vocalist, and songwriter based in New York City. He has performed and recorded with jazz luminaries such as Henry Threadgill, Cassandra Wilson, Lawrence D. “Butch” Morris, Oliver Lake, Leroy Jenkins, Wadada Leo Smith, Bill Frisell and many others, crafting a personal approach to guitar and improvisation that has taken him all over the world. A co-founder of the avant power trio, Harriet Tubman, and the nuanced acoustic duo, For Living Lovers, Ross moves freely between sonic terroirs of bombast and intimate subtlety. In addition to composing for documentary films and television, Ross leads the experimental music ensemble Brandon Ross Pendulum. He is a 2014 CMA New Jazz Works grantee.
Immortal Obsolescence by Brandon Ross and For Living Lovers has been made possible with support from Chamber Music America’s 2014 New Jazz Works: Commissioning and Ensemble Development program funded through the generosity of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation.
