Passengers perform Parameters at Space 4 Art

Vibraphonist Nathan Hubbard enlists an ensemble from San Diego and Tijuana to perform conceptual series

For the last several years, vibraphonist Nathan Hubbard has been presenting concerts under the moniker Passengers, usually as a five piece group playing “post-post-post-minimalist/rock/etc.”

For Hubbard, this was a move away from the multi-section compositions of his groups Return To One and Skeleton Key Orchestra into a different but related space revolving around the notation vs. improvisation dilemma and his continuing interest in slowing down music.

Passengers music is written in groups, with multiple pieces focusing on a connected idea.

For example: Where the Pattern Field series dealt with cell notation, the Sanctuary series added a large wind ensemble to the mix.

The recent Parameters series deals with antiphonal melodic presentation, in which Hubbard makes use of an ensemble to bring the pieces to fullness.

From the first complete performance in Arizona, the ensemble has featured an extended lineup (15-18 performers) of guitarists, keyboards, bassists and drummers, with Hubbard both conducting and playing vibraphone.

On Saturday, June 1 at Space 4 Art (325 15th Street – East Village), Passages will perform three extended pieces to form a complete picture of Parameters.

Parameters I focuses on the antiphonal presentation of long melodic phrases.

Parameters II, which uses a pulse instrument and four antiphonal ensembles, focusses on asymmetrical overlapping melodic material.

Parameters III is based around the slow development of two contrasting phrases.

This concert will be the third (and possibly last) concert performing these pieces.

Please also note that several performers will be joining the ensemble from Arizona, the first in what Hubbard promises to be many more San Diego/Phoenix collaborations.
