Oceans And

  • Tim Berne – saxophone
  • Hank Roberts – cello
  • Aurora Nealand – clarinet, accordion, voice

Ars Nova Workshop presents Tim Berne’s newly formed trio Oceans And, with accordionist and multi-instrumentalist Aurora Nealand and cellist Hank Roberts, at Solar Myth on November 2.

Tim Berne’s work is characterized by tireless artistic dedication and creativity. His newly formed trio Oceans And takes the listener on a sonically adventurous journey, and delights with much imagination and amazing musical diversity. The co-composed pieces are all open doors to infinite interpretation and development. “The breathtaking music, created by Tim Berne, Aurora Nealand, and Hank Roberts can be deservedly and on all accounts deemed: profound, probing, intriguing, distinct, intricate, raw, courageous, mysterious, and thoughtful. The group’s concerted effort to achieve a cohesive blend is a refreshing relief. An honest crusade of in-depth imagination, this music is a beacon of light in an unsettling world,” writes Baikida Carroll in the liner notes and adds: “It stimulates the brain, animates the imagination, and charms the heart.”
