Lawrence D. "Butch" Morris & Conduction, part 2 of 6
host: Andy Hosch /// This evening we bring you the second in a six part series on the music of composer and conductor Lawrence D. “Butch” Morris, recognized internationally as the principal theorist and practitioner in the evolution of Conduction, and a leading innovator in the confluence of jazz, new music, improvisation and contemporary classical music. Butch’s work redefines the role of composer, conductor, arranger and performer and bridges the gap between the composer, interpreter and improviser. Over the last 25 years Morris has led over 180 Conductions in cities around the world. In this second installment, we will hear conductions which feature traditional instruments from Turkey, China, and West Africa, along with Western instruments and electronics
