Sound Horizon: Elliott Sharp

“Whether he plays jazz, rock or free improvisation, Elliott Sharp’s guitar can rip flesh, thanks to his astounding fretwork skills and an inventive musical vocabulary.” —JazzTimes

Equal parts multi-instrumentalist, extended guitar hero, and mad scientist, Elliott Sharp has been a pivotal experimenter in the downtown New York music scene for more than 30 years. This sure-to-be jaw-dropping performance of acrobatic dexterity and visceral composition will feature his Octal for eight-string guitar/bass.

Exploring the interstitial spaces of live sound and visual art, the in-gallery music series Sound Horizon continues this spring with three of the country’s most respected composers and solo sonic adventurers. Free performances take place within the Perlman Gallery, which features the exhibition Dance Works II: Merce Cunningham/Ernesto Neto. Explore the Walker galleries for free from 5–9 pm. Presented in association with American Composers Forum.
