Since 2007, Ben Tyree has released recordings of his original work on his own Sonic Architectures label. Sonic Architectures LIVE represents Tyree’s concepts of visual forms in music & vice versa. Creating music in a space where an audience can seethe construction of sonic forms is key in this next step of communicating the overall mission of the label. The residency platform will provide an entryway for collaborations that will result in spontaneous compositions as well as improvisation within a given musical framework. This setting will ideally take collaborators (as well as composer) out of their comfort zone as well as provide a gestation platform for new ideas and projects.

Guitarist Ben Tyree is a performer and composer of virtuosic ability, infectious groove, and eclectic tastes. All of those elements are placed on stunning display on his latest release, Burn It! LIVE, a blistering live set from the Brooklyn Academy of Music’s prestigious BAMcafé Live series. That versatility has led to work with artists as diverse as Vernon Reid, Kyp Malone (TV On The Radio), Valerie June, Elliott Sharp, and Burnt Sugar: The Arkestra Chamber.

The Village @ Gureje is home to Art Café & Bar and Art Collective at The Village. Artists and entrepreneurs are encouraged through shared space and resources to provide a diverse spectrum of workshops, classes, gatherings, and events that serve the general community that work, play, create, and grow together. We expand possibilities into greater realities through the spirit of community and the arts.

Admission for each evening (both sets included) is $10. All shows are all ages welcomed. For more information regarding this event, please visit:
