A graduate of New England Conservatory's Contemporary Improvisation program (formerly Third Stream)...he has spent the last 20 years forging a unique path fusing an array of influences into his flamenco-based vocabulary.

Tim Berne/Snakeoil

Snakeoil, Tim Berne's new touring band, is a potent blend of new voices and new ideas. Oscar Noriega (woodwinds), Matt Mitchell (keyboards) and Ches Smith (percussion) bring fresh sounds and vibrant energy. Berne responds with a stunning book of new pieces balancing compositional rigor with fluid group improvisation. Hypnotic rhythms and long, seductive melodies collide with jagged dissonances and surprising textural shifts. A lush, organic blend of saxophones and clarinets is layered with electronic and acoustic keyboards and an ever-changing tapestry of percussion.
