The Museum of Making Music presents International Guitar night (IGN) on January 28, 2014. International Guitar Night is an annual musical event brings together the world's foremost acoustic guitarists to perform their latest compositions and exchange musical ideas in a public concert setting. This will be the sixth year the Museum has hosted the event, which travels across the U.S and Canada. Each tour, IGN founder Brian Gore invites a new cast of guitar luminaries to join him for special evenings of solos, duets and quartets that highlight the virtuosity and diversity within the world of acoustic guitar.
For the January/February 2014 U.S. tour, IGN founder Brian Gore will be joined by Italy's Pino Forastiere, Mike Dawes from England, and Quique Sinesi from Argentina.
Pino and Mike are revered in contemporary steel string guitar circles for their unique mix of melody, improvisation and hand percussion using the strings, the fretboard and the body of the guitar. Quique is a master of many South American melodies and rhythms on both guitar and charango. We are looking forward to a particularly inventive evening of contemporary guitar music.
This concert is presented by the Museum of Making Music in partnership with the City of Carlsbad Cultural Arts Office and is made possible by the Carlsbad Library and Arts Foundation's Robert H. Gartner Cultural Endowment Fund.
San Francisco guitar poet BRIAN GORE has a reputation as one of the most interesting and influential performers of "the next generation" in acoustic guitar. His style offers strikingly beautiful tone and dynamics, and he draws much of his inspiration from myth and modern literature. His recent project, Santa Cruz in Song and Image, is a remarkable multimedia collaboration with illustrator Bill Russell built around 10 songs inspired by Santa Cruz, CA. There's an iBook with text and images designed to enhance the listening experience, and the album includes illustrated postcards, also evoking Santa Cruz.
Since MIKE DAWES released his debut single with Candyrat records in June 2012, his international profile has exploded. The young performers' virtuoso style, littered with subtle nuances and micro-techniques has earned the 24 year old Brit massive international critical acclaim.
Mike's stage show has to be seen to be described, a youthful energy and charisma that blows the lid off the traditional guitar concert. His videos gain hundreds of thousands, if not millions of views in as little as one week online. Mike is extremely excited to bring his solo, and collaborative show to North America as part of the acclaimed International Guitar Night.
The music of Italian guitarist PINO FORASTIRE comes from a solid background in classical, contemporary and rock music, evolving into a style that 's hard to define. He "employes a dazzling blend of slapping, tapping, strumming, altered tunings and harmonics, combined with classical phrasing and a focus on distinct and addictive melodies" (Anil Prasad, Guitar Player).
His music is "something like a mix of Steve Reich's interlocking rhythmic patterns meet Michael Hedges's techniques, all while admiring Eddie van Halen" (John Schaefer, WNYC).
QUIQUE SINESI, born in 1960, is considered one of the most important guitarists in Argentina for his personal style. His music is based in elements of Tango and Folklore from his country, and rhythms from "Rio de la Plata" like Candombe, incorporating elements of jazz, improvisation, classical and world music. He plays a 7 string Spanish Guitar, Piccolo Guitar and Charango.
Over his career, Quique has played and recorded with an amazing array of musicians. He has played for years with the bandoneonist Dino Saluzzi and founded the group Mágic Carpet with Matias Gonzalez and Horacio López. Other noted musicians with whom he has played or recorded include Enrico Rava, Pedro Aznar, Ruben Rada, Paquito de Rivera, Joe Lovano, Markus Stockhausen, Erling Kroner, Wolfgang Haffner, Marcelo Moguilevsky, Michael Forman, Carlos Aguirre, Juan Falú, Karnataka College of Percusion, Dieter Ilg, Jasper Van Hof, Nazim, Daniel Messina, and the Pablo Ziegler Quintet.
The Ruby G. Schulman Auditorium is a multiple-use facility designed for a wide range of programs and presentations. The facility is used predominantly for individual speakers and panel presentations. Although not designed as a performing arts theater, the space is used for small-scale performances such as play readings, concerts and author lectures.
