Borderlands = Wonderlands

Words seldom do wonderlands justice; what you will see in the South West is a leather-jacket geology in mirrored shades, high heels and deep red lipsticks…

Studebaker: The Great Independent


From the speedway comes their stamina . . . from the skyway comes their style

You’re out of date without an eight

Smart to be seen in . . . smarter to buy

Your thrifty one in ’51

Studebaker-the great independent

The common sense cars

Craftsmanship with Flair

First by far with a post-war car

From The Hat Trio = flandrew fleisenberg + Clara Kebabian + Joshua Jefferson

The trio performed at Mobius in Central Square under the auspices of OpenSound series….

From The Hat Duo = Henrik Munkeby Nørstebø + Jesse Kenas-Collins

Spending the past couple of years playing in improvised groups around Boston, Jesse Kenas-Collins has come to value both the sonic and social importance of such work. Improvising with others functions both as art and on some level as a form of group therapy. Exploring improvisation as a soloist is an even more fragile experience and one that Jesse has kept relatively private, focusing his solo efforts towards recordings and a handful of public performances. The opportunity to perform as a soloist here is quite a joy.

Henrik Munkeby Nørstebø (born 1986 in Trondheim, Norway) is a trombonist working mostly within contemporary fields of music. Educated in improvised music and jazz from the music academies in Gothenburg (BA) and Oslo (MA), he is now based in the Norwegian capital.

Beam splitter = Audrey Chen + Henrik Munkeby Nørstebø

AUDREY CHEN is a Chinese-American musician who was born into a family of material scientists, doctors and engineers, outside of Chicago in 1976. Parting ways with the family convention, she turned to the cello at age 8 and voice at 11. After years of classical and conservatory training in both instruments, with a resulting specialization in early and new music, she parted ways again in 2003 to begin new negotiations with sound in order to discover a more individually honest aesthetic.
