Patrick Brennan

Open rehearsal starts at 6:00 PM

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 Morocco and has recorded numerous albums of his own original music. Patrick Brennan's transparency kestra is a rotating community of musicians, a polyrhythmic drum ensemble without drums and an engine of multidirectional musical exploration. Transparencies are an organizational strategy that overlays rhythmelodic patterns that can be recombined in a decentralized way through improvisation and conduction.
