Of California Ecology features new works based on different facets of California’s natural world. The trio (Eika Oba: flute, Stephanie Neumann: saxophones, and Jacob Lane: piano) will perform compositions by ensemble members, Julie Herndon, and call-for-scores winner Kian Ravaei. Drawing on the artists’ distinct backgrounds in jazz, band, and chamber music, the program is inspired by seismic activity, fungal biomes, waterways, and social ecology, among other natural phenomena. The result is a diverse set of works all created with the aim of bringing appreciation to California’s beautiful and delicate environment.
