Universal Language Project Presents: The Elements
An event with visual artist Scott Kolbo and the iconoclast band TORCH. The four classical elements of earth, fire, wind, and water will be depicted through music and brought to life with moving canvas imagery. We will engage the audience in our depiction of a fifth element, Aether.
Poised between progressive jazz, post-rock, and contemporary classical music, the quartet’s original compositions are a playful juxtaposition amidst our heady intellects and our groove craving souls.
Torch is a reference to Tomas Mann where he proclaimed the aesthetic mantra, “Art is the sacred torch that must shed its merciful light into all life’s terrible depths."
