Ike Sturm

ENSEMBLE BIOGRAPHY - Integrating jazz and world rhythms in richly textured original music, the New York-based Ike Sturm Ensemble fuses diverse influences into a unified, contemporary style. The unique voices of each of its ten improvising members speak to audiences within a saturated environment of original artwork painted by artist and clarinetist Madeline Sturm to complement the sound and form of the music.

A grant from the Eastman School of Music in 2001 provided an opportunity for the group’s first multimedia performance of “Spirit,” a three-movement suite by Ike Sturm. “Reflect” (Live DVD” 2003) is a through-composed six-part suite using paintings, photographs and projected images to convey symmetry in God’s creation. Most recently, the group premiered a new work, entitled “Shape of Day,” a 7-part suite that traces the different perspectives of light encountered throughout a single day.
