Milwaukee-based composer Jason Seed regularly collaborates with Chicago Symphony bassist Dan Armstrong in the Jason Seed Elixir Ensemble. Dan describes this ensemble as a “jazz-rock-folk-classical-world-new music group” (whew!), and we’ve featured this group previously on the blog.
The following video features Dan Armstrong playing all four parts (overdubbed) to Jason Seed’s Bass Quartet, with images from the Chicago Symphony’s 2009 tour of Europe serving as visuals for the music. Enjoy, and be sure to check out the Jason Seed Elixir Ensemble on MySpace as well:
