DOORS: 7:30 PM
SHOW: 8:00 PM

This three-part series excavates spontaneous sonic combustion and delves into the unknown through Conduction, an artistic process created by Butch Morris to enable "an improvised duet for ensemble and conductor" without words or musical notation. Through a process of ideographic physical signs and gestures, Prof. Stephanie Richards conducts the ensemble Phantom Station to create a communion of multiple intelligences and a bravely vulnerable creative journey into the unknown.

Phantom Station is a collective of artists and graduate students of the UCSD Department of Music, performing January 30, February 27 and March 13. Each concert to feature a special guest.

Stephanie Richards Bio:

Exploring spaces between jazz and experimental music, trumpeter and composer Stephanie Richards has become a unique voice in the NYC experimental scene, collaborating with improvisational pioneers Henry Threadgill, Butch Morris, John Zorn and Anthony Braxton along with performance artists Mike Kelly, Laurie Anderson and Yoko Ono. Celebrated as an adventurous performer, Stephanie’s theatrical tendencies often include multi-disciplinary collaborations of sight, sound and movement. An avid collaborator and supporter of new music, Stephanie has premiered new works throughout North America and Europe, while having her own compositions premiered at venues such as Carnegie Hall, the Blue-note and Lincoln Center. Stephanie is a founding member of the Asphalt Orchestra, created the collective Bang On a Can, where she has worked with David Byrne, St. Vincent, Susan Marshall and has also performed alongside Kronos Quartet, The Pixies, Kanye West, A-Trak and Common. Stephanie holds degrees from the Eastman School of Music, McGill University and the California Institute of the Arts and has held residency at Stanford University. A recent addition to the faculty at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), Stephanie also encourages the performance and commissioning of jazz and new music as Vice-President of the Festival of New Trumpet (FONT). Richards is currently working towards the release of a Tricentric Foundation grant for commissioned scents and sounds.
