About the Artist
Noa Even presents atomic, a multimedia program for solo saxophonist that addresses themes of human connection. Premiered in 2019, this long-term collaborative project continues with the addition of Nasim Khorassani’s theatrical work InContact@Zero for baritone saxophone, electronics, and video. Khorassani explores the many emotional layers of grief after experiencing the untimely death of her beloved brother. The concert also features music by Emily Koh, Chris Biggs, and José Martínez.
Based in Philadelphia, Noa Even is a versatile saxophonist dedicated to the creation of new music through close collaboration with composers, improvisation, and most recently, composition. Ongoing projects include atomic, a multimedia solo program exploring themes of human connection; an interview series called Talking Free Music; her duos, Ogni Suono and Patchwork; and The Saxophone Repository, a collection of resources and music for saxophonists that focuses on living, historically excluded composers, musicians, and authors. Noa recently joined New Thread Quartet, a NYC-based saxophone quartet. In 2017, she co-founded Cleveland Uncommon Sound Project (CUSP), a non-profit organization that champions new and experimental music. Noa is Lecturer and Head of Woodwinds at Rowan University in New Jersey, a Conn-Selmer Artist-Clinician, a Vandoren Artist, and Treasurer of the North American Saxophone Alliance.
