Special Chapel Breaks Traditional Labels of Jazz and Classical Music as Musicians Offer Afternoon of Improvisation, Reflection
SoulScapes, an improvisational presentation by national ministry Music Serving the Word, features Bob Ravenscroft’s keyboards, Dwight Kilian’s upright bass, and Rob Moore’s drums in breaking the traditional labels of "jazz" and "classical" music. Their improvisational artistry creates a contemplative soundscape for the spoken word of Rev. Richard Parrish.
Mario Barnabe completes the experience with visuals that complement the musical score and bring focus to Scripture and Christian spirituality. He projects video clips during the performance that create a contemplative space surrounding the music and spoken word.
This is the premise of SoulScapes, a free event that immerses participants in a deeply moving and unforgettable artistic experience, engaging the mind and heart. Hosted by Claremont School of Theology, 1325 North College Ave, Claremont, CA. All are welcome.
"Music is an expression of the soul," explains bassist Dwight Kilian. "Rather than focusing on a specific style of music, SoulScapes puts the emphasis on improvisation. As artists, we musically express the hopes and longings of the soul in a way that transcends musical genres. It’s a unique experience that connects with a wide variety of people. And for us as musicians, it’s a joy to play across traditional musical labels, exploring and connecting the audience to deeper matters of the soul."
