Come out for a short, sweet set and then join us for drinks at the Bukowski! We know it's late on a Thursday in Boston, but that doesn't mean you can't put some music in your ears and some beers in your body! 

Tyler Futrell: Technology of Muses (2016) 
Aaron Holloway-Nahum: It Is Important to Be Able To Return (2015)
Bethany Younge: waterswaterwaters (2015)

Tyler Futrell's "Technology of Muses" is the fruit of one of Chartreuse's longest relationships: his "String Trio for Bill" was the first trio we played! Aaron Holloway-Nahum's "It Is Important to Be Able To Return" explores form and repetition by systematically using contours and patterns found in nature to create familiarity without monotony. Chicago-based Bethany Younge’s "waterswaterwaters" (subtitled “sinking flowing drifting”) is a dark reflecting pool, ranging from totally still to a roiling vortex. The three musicians shout, hum, and murmur, and their instruments mimic those vocal gestures in a twisted reflection. It is up to the listener to tell which version is above the water and which exists only below the enigmatic surface...

Tickets are $10 at the door!

This concert is supported by the Norske Komponistfond and the Sons of Norway.
