“Alt.Musica at Parallel Play” by Jeremy Sutton, iPad pro, Apple Pencil and Procreate app

This art was created live at the “Parallel Play: ENCORE” on Sunday, April 21, featuring the music of the Alt.Musica ensemble.

ART & MUSIC collided again in the rooftop studio of artist Peggy Gyulai, featuring fellow artist Jeremy Sutton. Peggy and Jeremy drew the splendid musicians of ALT.MUSICA featuring Elaine Alt on Soprano, Alto, Tenor & Baritone saxophones, Clarinet in A, and Voice, with the alt.musica string quartet and rhythm section, as they played ten songs composed by Elaine Alt as well as Oscar Moore, Johannes Brahms, Malcolm X, Aeion Solar, Miles Davis, Charles Mingus and Dave Brubeck. The music style incorporates contrasts and mashups of Swing, Latin Jazz, Funk, Afro-Cuban and Classical elements.
