Nationally recognized jazz saxophonists Richard Oppenheim and Rene Saenz return to URBAN-15 as the second installment of our Sonic Provocation series, which provides a setting for sound artists to showcase original material, taking it out of the laboratory and into the ears of the public.

Taking full advantage of the creative freedom offered by the Sonic Provocation series, Oppenheim and Saenz’s performance eschews easy listening or covers of jazz standards for experimentation, with the jazz duo at times playing in parallel and at times in conversation—the simultaneous monologues/spontaneous dialogues of the title—in an exploration into the nature of improvisation.

A highly abstract performance with 20 minutes of improv followed by intermission, drinks, and audience interaction followed by another 20 minute set, Oppenheim and Saenz are sure to challenge and provoke listeners, but also reward their intellectual curiosity.
