Visiting Illinois as an Improvisers Exchange artist-in-residence, Jason Kao Hwang’s (composer/violin/viola) music explores the vibrations and language of his history.

In Human Rites Trio, longtime bandmates Ken Filiano (bass) and Andrew Drury (drums) embark upon extemporaneous, transformational sonic journeys stemming from the narrative landscapes of Jason’s compositions.

Jason Kao Hwang provides further insight,

Each composition is a progression of gestures, songs, movements and locations that bring participants into a state of discovery and compassion.

Within these Human Rites, individual voices are empowered to be fully expressive so that each moment is unpredictable and deeply intentional. 

This psychic intensity, both sacred and sacrificial, provokes a heightened awareness that unifies Listeners and Musicians within a spiritual entrainment.

As we hear ourselves within music we become Music, which is no longer a performance but an affirmation of justice and celebration of life.”
