Jerome Ellis, Solo

Co-Presented with Dismal Niche, the Left Field Series features adventurous musical moments that celebrate the avant-garde tradition of expression outside the confines of convention. Stretch your ears and try something new.

In his own words JJJJJerome Ellis is "a disabled Grenadian-Jamaican-American animal, artist, and person who stutters." Ellis's work includes contemplative soundscapes using saxophone, flute, dulcimer, electronics, and vocals combining spoken word with ambient and jazz textures. Through this interdisciplinary practice, with a focus on improvisation, and the interrelations between speech, silence, disability, and religion, his works are invitations to healing, transcendence, and deep listening. Ellis is a current writer in residence at the Lincoln Center in New York City and has seen his work presented by the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Sundance Institute Theatre Lab, MASS MoCA, and WKCR.
