patrick brennan's transparency kestra

Composer and saxophonist patrick brennan has pursued a contrarian and independent musical path for over 3 decades in pursuit of those yet unheard somethings just around the corner. He's collaborated and recorded with Gnawa musicians in Moroccco and has recorded numerous albums of his own original music.

Transparencies are an organizational strategy that overlays rhythmelodic patterns that can be recombined in a decentralized way though improvisation and conduction.  transparency kestra is a rotating community of musicians, a polyrhythmic drum ensemble (with or without drums) & an engine of multidirectional musical exploration.
