Neil Leonard making
electronic music


Neil Leonard
Cloud Foundation (Back Bay) May 5
free|handicap access
Neil Leonard's electronic music uses the computer to redefine jazz performance. He has created a number of custom software-based systems to extract thematic material from his improvisations to allow a computer to respond and jam with him in real-time. His latest solo work includes a melodic counterpoint between saxophone and computer where both live and virtual players ‘listen’ to each other and improvise responses in real-time. Leonard’s performance at Cloud Place will be followed by a question-and-answer session.
