Thursday April 24, Syrinx Effect, the “electronic chamber jazz” duo that is known for their experimental and skilled work with electronics as well as for their compositional pieces and features acclaimed musicians Kate Olson playing saxophone and Naomi Siegel playing trombone, will officially debut their new EP Snail Songs with a release party at Jaam Rek Studios in Seattle’s Central District. This performance caps off a two-week tour of the West Coast that begins in Arcata, CA, and includes stops in the Bay Area, Hollywood, and Portland.
Besides scheduled concert dates, including a collaborative performance with movement artist Paige Barnes, they will also lead clinics and workshops in Berkeley, Stanford, and at high schools and community colleges.
The official release date for the Snail Songs EP is April 11. It features five compositions that were recorded live by Doug Haire for Sonarchy Radio on KEXP in Seattle.
