Birds On A Wire

Thursday, January 18 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

As French ConéXion, Bernard Kunz and Jeremy Spindler have been playing together since 2016 with the intention of creating high-quality music in a jazz format. As a duo in “Birds on a Wire”, they weave improvised intuitive interactions based on long internalized melodies which are given new life at every performance by two of western New York’s most adventurous improvisers. 

Bernard and Jeremy create music that catches the imagination, whether it’s traditional standards or original compositions. The small format of the duo allows for intuitive interaction, interpretation and improvisation at every turn of their performance. They are both inspired by folk music from Indian, Klezmer, Manouche, Musette, Flamenco, Fado, Tango, Forro, to Choro and Blues.

The repertoire includes their own compositions and improvisations & interpretations of tunes by Erik Satie, Edith Piaf, Hermeto Pascoal, Astor Piazzolla, Django Reinhardt and jazz standards. Inspiring musicians are accordionist Vincent Peirani, violinist Patricia Kopatchinskaja, saxophonist Emile Parisien, guitarists Jim Hall, Paco de Lucia and Julian Lage, pianist Bill Evans, composers Bela Bartok and Hermeto Pascoal and of course many more.
