Atlas Maior: Palindrome

Atlas Maior creates original music that combines elements of Progressive Jazz, Middle Eastern, Latin American, and Indian music traditions. Their set in NMASS2019 is based off concepts they employed when making their 2014 album, Palindrome, exploring different methods of improvisation and cosmologies of sound. Many of these exercises utilized themes of symmetries in sound through different instrumental arrangements. The players will be Joshua Thomson (alto saxophone, flutes), Jonathan Horne (guitar), Josh Peters (oud), Gary Calhoun James (bass), and Aaron Parks (drums).
