by Aakash Mittal & Tatyana Tenenbaum

Hailed as “A fiery alto saxophonist and prolific composer” by the Star Tribune (Minneapolis), Aakash Mittal is sculpting a dynamic voice that mines the intersection of improvisation, composition, sonified movement, and noise. Mittal’s work explores universal designs while being rooted in both South Asian and American musical traditions. His latest project is a series of nocturnes written for his Awaz Trio that abstract and deconstruct five Hindustani evening and night ragas. 

Tatyana Tenenbaum creates action through voice and body. She is increasingly interested in channeling ancestral knowledge--rhythm, timbre, and story, through her bones and fascia. She regularly collaborates with Emily Moore, Marisa Clementi, Jules Skloot and Pareena Lim. They are cooking up something new this fall. Thanks to Aakash for this invitation to improvise lineages together.
