The Creative Music Guild Confluence Series presents Sun Of Goldfinger, a group where all three musicians are renowned bandleaders in their own right, with recordings on the ECM label.

The Sun of Goldfinger are saxophonist Tim Berne, drummer Ches Smith and guitarist David Torn.

Berne has forged a singular path across dozens of diverse albums of intricate harmony-driven works.

Torn’s influence as a guitarist, composer and music technologist is epic. He’s recorded and toured with Bowie, Jeff Beck, kd laing and many others. His soaring liquid loops have reinvented definitions of guitar.

Smith has established himself as one of the world’s premier percussionists, combining invention with electronics to propel and extend his musical surroundings.

The improvisation based group shifts from atmospheres into shattering mayhem and the audience becomes part of the soundscape.

The show is at Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison St. on Thursday, March 14 at 8 pm. Tickets are $15 at and the event is for 21+ and over. Portland trio Teton opens.
