Theo Bleckmann & Ben Monder Duo

For over 15 years, the Theo Bleckmann & Ben Monder Duo has frequently toured the U.S., Europe and Asia creating a unique approach to what might be called “jazz art song”, blurring the boundaries between jazz, classical, ambient and rock. Bleckmann’s vocal style is based on a thorough understanding of the jazz vocal tradition as well as “extended vocal techniques” (he has been a principal in Meredith Monk’s Vocal Ensemble since 1994) and also uses electronic looping and processing in order to create choral and textural soundscapes. Bleckmann was recently interviewed by Terry Gross for Fresh Air on NPR and received a GRAMMY™ nomination in 2010 for his CD of Ives songs with Kneebody. Monder, a regular with the Maria Schneider Orchestra and Paul Motian’s band, has developed a compositional style to exploit the full textural potential of the guitar; his playing is influenced as much by classical technique as jazz. The duo’s continued collaborations on both Bleckmann’s “Origami” and Monder’s “Excavation” and “Oceana” have garnered great critical acclaim world-wide.
