Performance | The Last Detail: Joe Rozler
Friday, April 13, 2018, 5:30–7:30 pm
Joe Rozler's decades-long musical career started like many others. Born into a musical family, Joe grew up listening to Dave Brubeck, The Beatles and Stockhausen. He studied piano and voice at Fredonia School of Music. In 2008, he was inducted into the Buffalo Music Hall of Fame [several years ahead of Morton Feldman].
Rozler continues to be active as a recording artist and performer in jazz, rock, pop and less classifiable music. In recent years, he has created music for soap operas, video games and TV commercials, played and sang a lead role in Jonathan Golove's chamber opera "Mental Radio," and written string arrangements for 10,000 Maniacs.
For his performance at BPAC, Joe will bring an extensive collection of vintage synthesizers and processors. Using these instruments and his voice, and guided by a lifelong pursuit of harmony and lyricism, Rozler will create an ambient soundscape, a sort of "audio aquarium" which will throb and shimmer in the atrium space.
