Drawing on the relationships between points in space and their quantum persistence, “Field
Theory” presents an electrified area of sound, or a “sonic-sphere.” The brainchild of composer and guitarist Matt Panayides in collaboration with the virtuoso EWI and saxophonist Matt Vashlishan, in this music the band explores the sonic texture of space in time mapping it onto the present moment. Joined by Mark Ferber on drums and Robert Sabin on double bass, the group will be performing new music.
Matt Panayides is a modern guitarist and composer. His compelling melodies, compositions and improvisations remain in the listener’s mind long after the gig, employing modern harmonies, free and structured improvisations, mixed-meter rhythms and straight-ahead swing. Matt has released two albums featuring his original compositions for quartet, Conduits (2015) and Tapestries of Song (2011). Matt has been performing as a leader in the NYC area and abroad for the past 15 years.
