FILM : Jekyll and Hyde (79min.)

Live Music: The Ghost
The Ghost is an improvising trio with Michael Foster on saxophones, samples, electronics, Henry Fraser on double bass and tapes, and Connor Baker on percussion. The group operates in the space between Free Jazz and Noise, moving seamlessly from high energy squawk to dense or minimalist noise textures. 

Michael Foster bio
Michael Foster is a saxophonist and multi-instrumentalist working in the fields of free improvisation, noise, free jazz, graphic & video notation, performance art, and other forms of weird music.
Foster utilizes extensive preparations of his saxophone, augmenting it with amplification, objects, balloons, drum heads, vibrators, tapes, and samples as a method of subverting and queering the instrument’s history and traditional roles.
His current ensembles include duos with cellist Leila Bordreuil, percussionist Ben Bennett, vocalist Anais Maviel, Richard Kamerman, The Ghost (with Henry Fraser & Connor Baker), Barker Trio (with Tim Dahl, James Ilgenfritz, & Andrew Barker), While We Still Have Bodies (with Sean AliBen Gerstein, & Flin van Hemmen), Weasel Walter Large Ensemble, and BDM (with Ben Bennett and David Grollman).
Selected notable venues he's performed at include Bowling Green State University (Ohio), The Stone (NYC), BimHuis (NL), Jazzfestival Groningen (NL), Fabrica Braço de Prata (PT), Death By Audio (NYC), Studio Loos (NL), Betalevel (Los Angeles), Webster Hall (NYC), XI20 (LT), Jazzclub Erfurt (DE), and many more. 

Henry Fraser bio
Born in Boston, MA, Henry Fraser received his B.F.A. from New England Conservatory of Music in the spring of 2014, where he studied with Cecil McBee, John McNeil, Anthony Coleman, & Ted Reichman. He has recorded and/or performed with such artists as Anthony Coleman, Joe Morris, and Tony Malaby, and has performed at notable festivals, including the Panama Jazz Fest and the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.
