Futureman - Silverman (concert series)

Baker Center Theatre

FUTUREMAN | SILVERMAN

FUTUREMAN | SILVERMAN is a wide-ranging musical conversation between two of the world’s most eclectic and adventurous musicians. Roy “Futureman” Wooten is a 5x Grammy-winning percussionist, founding member of Bela Fleck & the Flecktones, a composer, inventor, innovator, and a wildly engaging personality. His musical explorations continue to mine the furthest reaches of the musical world. Dubbed “the greatest living exponent of the electric violin" by the BBC, Tracy Silverman is the world’s foremost concert electric violinist. He went to The Juilliard School hoping to become the next Jascha Heifetz but left wanting to become the next Jimi Hendrix, and was recently designated by Juilliard as one of its Top 100 graduates. His groundbreaking work with the electric 6-string violin has led to collaborations with the world’s greatest composers and premiers at Carnegie Hall. The combination of the two is explosive. Utilizing electronics, live looping, and spontaneous musical interaction, they create soundscapes and grooves that will make you look for the other members of this duo. The journey spans Rock, Jazz, Latin and Asian grooves and includes “de-rangements” of electric violin concertos, original works, and celebrates everything from Bach to Hendrix.
