The Resonance Residence is the unique and intriguing trio collaboration of vocalist Andrea Goodman, trumpeter Mark Tipton and flutist Carl Dimow. The music they create is primarily spontaneously improvised. It draws on a wide variety of influences: world music, folk music, avant garde classical composition and jazz. It’s rooted in deep listening and musical conversation, and inspired by the beautiful timbral combination of their three instruments.
The Resonance Residence did a series of concerts in the early 2000’s, then all moved on to other projects. They revisited their trio last summer, discovered the sound was as intriguing as ever, and decided it was time to do more public performances.
For this concert, the trio will be joined by the wonderfully creative percussionist, Beau Lisy.
