For City Maps, clarinetist and drummer Steven Kamperman wrote a series of compositions that form a portrait of a city. Titles like Grand Boulevard, Cathedral, Dance Hall, Central Station and The Bridge can all be found on city maps. The ensemble takes the audience on a journey through an imaginary place, with colorful and poetic visuals by young filmmaker Henrietta Müller.
City Maps is a project full of contrasts. Influences vary widely from modern dance to Gregorian chant, and from swing jazz to contemporary composed music. All these roots come together in a compositional journey and a shared approach to intense improvisation. The result is a sound of abrasive beauty, in which old and new merge naturally, as they do in the cities around us.
