Graham Reynolds and the Golden Arm Trio
Trinity University's Jazz 91.7 FM and Blue Star Contemporary Art Museum will create a unique performance art event featuring composer/pianist Graham Reynolds and the Golden Arm Trio. Following the citywide collaborations during the Year of Jazz, this event will be part of KRTU's Jazz for Art's Sake series, which reaffirms the importance of creative synergy within the San Antonio arts community through innovative programming drawing on art, music and performance art forms. This event centers on building appreciation for all three art forms.
Called "the quintessential modern composer" by the London Independent, Austin-based composer/bandleader Graham Reynolds creates, performs and records music for film, theater, dance, rock clubs and concert halls with collaborators ranging from Richard Linklater and Jack Black to DJ Spooky and Ballet Austin. Heard throughout the world in films, on TV, on stage and on radio from HBO to Showtime, Cannes Film Festival to the Kennedy Center, and BBC to NPR, he recently scored "Bernie" featuring Jack Black as well as the Hulu TV series "Up To Speed" and his score to the Robert Downey, Jr. feature "A Scanner Darkly" was named 'Best Soundtrack of the Decade' by Cinema Retro magazine. With Golden Arm Trio, Reynolds has repeatedly toured the country and released five critically acclaimed albums including the simultaneous release of "The Difference Engine: A Triple Concerto" and "DUKE! Three Portraits of Ellington" on Innova Records with distribution by Naxos, the world's biggest classical label. As Co-Artistic Director of the 501(c)3 Golden Hornet Project with Peter Stopschinski, Reynolds has produced more than fifty concerts of world premiere alt-classical music by more than sixty composers, as well as five symphonies, two concertos and countless chamber pieces of his own. Graham is an active company member, sound designer, and composer with the internationally acclaimed Rude Mechanicals and resident composer with Salvage Vanguard Theater.
