Much like the enigmatic musician, composer and artist herself, Elizabeth A. Baker eschews the collection of traditional titles that describe single elements of her body of work. As such, she refers to herself as a “New Renaissance Artist,” one that embraces a constant stream of change and rebirth in practice, which expands into a variety of media, chiefly an exploration of how the sonic world can be manipulated to personify a variety of philosophies and principles both tangible as well as intangible. A performer highly sought after for her unique concert presentation methods which break the fourth wall and draw the audience further into the music by asking them to listen beyond the surface through interactive dialogue, reminding them that there is no such thing as an incorrect interpretation of a work, Baker firmly believes that everyone encounters music in a unique manner coming different sets of cultural norms, Quadrivium is…an invitation to get focused, unplug from distractions, and take a lap around an extensive work of art. And hopefully learn a little bit about yourself when it’s all said and done.”
Baker is joined by local pianist John O’Leary, Tampa Bay native turned Oakland-based composer/improvisor Nathan Corder, Oakland-based saxophonist Tom Weeks, and Toronto-based saxophonist Robert Hess for an evening of spontaneous compositions, graphic scores, and interactive visual media.
