Battle Trance

An unusual combination of four tenor saxophones, Battle Trance mesmerizes with “a floating tapestry of fascinating textures made up of tiny musical motifs, and a music that throbs with tension between stillness and agitation, density and light,” (New York Times).

Tickets are $10/$5 for members. Student admission is $7.

"If you're already acquainted with Evan Parker, John Butcher, Colin Stetson, and Mats Gustafsson, you'll want to put Travis Laplante's name on your list of must-see saxophonists."

Georgia Straight

"There's tremendous technical control behind what [Travis] Laplante does... splintering notes as if through a prism, using circular breathing for purposes of hypnotism."

New York Times

"...a floating tapestry of fascinating textures made up of tiny musical motifs, and a music that throbs with tension between stillness and agitation, density and light."

New York Times

"Battle Trance makes music that soars, glides, and dives to realms that few musicians have dreamt about, let alone touched."
