NOTE : SUNDAY LIFE DRAWING WITH DAVID LEE is back! Contact: dleeway1116@hotmaildotcom
OUTPOST now hosts life drawing classes, Sunday mornings 10am - 1pm

Each and every Sunday Mick Goodrick and I host a meeting of the art worlds. 3 hours of drawing and our live improvisational music. We call it right brain sanctuary. It's quite amazing and indescribable how these sessions, with a live model, great friendly artists, musicians, music and chocolate all combine to offer the deepest insights into the creative process, how art and music inform one another.
If you're free, Outpost Gallery 186 1/2 Hampshire Street, Inman Sq Cambridge from 10 AM to 1 in the afternoon. We collect $15 for the model. All are welcome, bring your own drawing materials.

Michael K. Harrist - contrabass


Tev Stevig and Michael Harrist continue their investigations into Turkish makam music with this (mostly) monthly series. This latest installment will include new compositions and instruments and Michael will be freshly back from Turkey!

Tev and Mike first met by happenstance in Istanbul in 2010. Back home in Boston, MA they found themselves playing and studying Ottoman art music with Orkestra Marhaba. A modal tradition, Ottoman art music has a history of over 500 years and includes a wide range of repertoire, composers, and practitioners.

This project is a creative outlet for original composition and improvisation within the style, as well as an investigation into the polyphonic possibilities of makam music.
