Ars Nova Workshop presents the all-star jazz-metal group Titan to Tachyons at Solar Myth on Wednesday, March 27.

Titan to Tachyons is an instrumental experimental jazz-metal group led by New Zealand/New York composer and guitarist Sally Gates (ex-Orbweaver), which features Kenny Grohowski (Secret Chiefs 3, John Zorn) on drums, and two bassists: Trevor Dunn (Mr. Bungle, Fantômas, Tomahawk) and Matt Hollenberg (Cleric, John Zorn). The quartet’s music depicts the realms of surrealism and science-fiction through eclectic and improvisational passages, juxtaposed by fluid grooves and metallic flurries. The band recently released their mind-blowing second album, Vonals, via John Zorn’s Tzadik Records. As alluring as it is unpredictable, the album features spaced-out free-flowing jams merged with explosive metallic outbursts, as if the listener was watching a time-lapse video of the cosmos forming from an ominous jazz lounge in a David Lynch film.
