Opus 40
50 Fite Road, Saugerties, New York

Event Type

Chosen Family Presents Colin Stetson, a Montreal based musician known for his astounding physical engagement with his instruments and his idiosyncratic style, experimenting with multi/polyphonics, vocalisations, valve-work and his instrument’s percussive sounds. A saxophonist, multireedist, and composer with a sprawling list of collaborations with musicians and diverse contributions to film, TV and game scores.
Stetson’s nature is defiantly single-minded, and his dogged focus is always evident in his work, his swooping, circling and soaring motifs displaying as much sensitivity as strength. Even the very body of his instrument – not to mention his own body – provides a source of vital sounds which defy the imagination.
