Sudden Sound concerts feature leading artists in improvised music and the jazz avant-garde.

Renée Baker's Quadtych—Renée Baker (violin, viola), Karl E. H. Siegfried (bass), William Porter (cello), and Bruce Nelson (vibes, percussion)—expresses the polystylistic stylings of Picasso, the moody brooding of Rothko, the impatience of Pollock, and the sensuous passion of Anaïs Nin.

For this event, award-winning composer Renée Baker presents ICHOR BLACK for violin, cello, bass, and percussion, a comprovisation of composed structures, painted and graphic scores, and improvisation based on the opera THE BALDWIN CHRONICLES: NEGRO IDEOLOGIES.
