The Sound House Organisation Presents Symphronica + Artemis at La Belle Angele
Joining us for a very special night at La Belle Angele is Ron Davis and SymphRONica. This band has topped the charts, won international raves for their innovative electric/acoustic plus strings jazz sound, been critics’ choice performers at the Pan Am Games and finished a smashing run at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2016 – all while being a BBC Radio 3 regular.
SymphRONica is about the sound. Smart. Entertaining. Engaging. A genre-bending blend which audiences around the world have loved. Ron and SymphRONica are Toronto’s source of brilliant enjoyment. 2016 saw them wow New York City, London and Glasgow, and left them wanting more.
SymphRONica come to us direct from playing at the celebrations for Canada Day 150 in Trafalgar Square.
+ Special guests artephis
Since forming in 2014, artephis have been committed to realizing forward-looking ‘stretch music’ which directs the progressive energy of post-bop Miles Davis and Wynton Marsalis onto the contemporary plane of Christian Scott, Bill Laurance, Antonio Sanchez’ Migration Band and Brian Blade & The Fellowship, distilling an eclectic sound of their own. Imaginatively exploring the textural possibilities of electronics-charged trumpet, a harmonically immersive pairing of guitar and piano, and a rhythm section that doesn’t shy away from explosive grooves and light-footed nuance, artephis approach the spirited and sensitive as a mercurial improvising collective.
