Join Studio Soto in the Fort Point Arts Community space for a special concert featuring artists from Boston, New York, Providence and Baltimore as they come together for a mini-tour with this stop in Boston. Graham and Moore are well-known in the Boston scene, and it is always an engaging and unexpected surprise to encounter their music. For this event, there will be four 15-20 minute solos and then the musicians will form a quartet for the finale.  Here are their essential bios:

rhythm, and noise. Festival appearances include High Zero, Festival of New Trumpet,
Vision Festival, and The Wire’s Adventures in Modern Music.

Stephan Moore is a composer, performer, audio artist, sound designer
