6PM-8PM Soundpainting Masterclass and Workshop by EVAN MAZUNIK (NCY) $10

Chagall Performance Art Collaborative Presents

Soundpainting with Evan Mazunik and Eight Foot Manchild

Enjoy some well-trained Soundpainting and highly electrified sounds with Evan Mazunik, Eight Foot Manchild, and drop-in special guests of the Boston Soundpainting Ensemble. Nothing unusual for the roster of a ChagallPAC show, but nothing usual for the real world!

Evan Mazunik

Evan is a composer/performer raised on the prairies of Iowa and rooted in Queens, NY. Fluent in Soundpainting, a sign language for live composition, Mazunik is artistic director of ZAHA, his experimental chamber music ensemble. His commissions include works for jazz band, chorus, theater, dance, and film, and his work was featured in a documentary for the Finnish Broadcasting Company. Mazunik has performed with Anthony Braxton, Walter Thompson, Carla Bley, Robin Eubanks, Danielson, and Sufjan Stevens, and he received a Bachelors degree in piano performance and a Masters in jazz studies from the University of Iowa. Mazunik currently serves as music director at Resurrection Presbyterian in Brooklyn, NY, where he infuses ancient liturgy with contemporary innovation.

Eight Foot Manchild

Eight Foot Manchild was once an improv/noise ensemble that has recently evolved into a mash-up power trio whose only attitude toward music is "if it feels good, play it". No genre is safe from us. We play medleys consisting of surf rock, thrash metal, Saturday morning cartoon and British sci-fi themes, film scores, video game music and everything in between, in all original arrangements.
