CoMAP Presents Ben Van Winkle And The Figment Chamber Ensemble Oct. 19

Tuesday, October 9, 2018

Contemporary, Collaborative, Community Musical Arts Project will present a concert of new music from Ben Van Winkle and the Figment Chamber Ensemble on Friday, Oct. 19, at 7:30 p.m. at Barking Legs Theater. Tickets are $15.   

“Our current project, Ben Van Winkle and the Figment Chamber Ensemble features the highest caliber classical musicians in our area playing the delightful contemporary compositions of Ben Van Winkle,” said Bryony Stroud-Watson, CoMAP artistic director.  

Review for Ben Van Winkle and the Figment Chamber Ensemble:

A Chattanooga native, Mr. Van Winkle has performed with the Chattanooga Symphony and as front man of the popular local band, Masseuse. Mr. Van Winkle is a cellist, singer, beat boxer, and composer. In his solo shows he uses looping—recording short sequences on stage and then playing live while these recordings play back—to layer these elements into a uniquely personal sound that ranges from upbeat, feel good music to serene, heartfelt, and moving. 

For this show, Mr. Van Winkle has arranged his layered, solo compositions as chamber music for a bespoke chamber ensemble featuring strings, winds, performers with the Chattanooga and Mobile Symphonies and teaching faculty at Cleveland State, Lee University, and UT Knoxville. 

"It should be one of the most unusual chamber music events in Chattanooga in some time and one that will leave you wondering if it was all a figment of your imagination!” said Bryony Stroud-Watson.

Roy Exum: The Loving Hands

For a great part of my life that I spent with my family at the former Chattanooga News-Free Press, we were in a lockjaw fight with the family who owned the Chattanooga Times. Up until the 1970s the two newspapers existed under the same roof, splitting expenses, but that got sour when the Times had a lot more “expenses” than we were duty-bound to share. So then my grandfather ... (click for more)
