Over the weekend I sat down with Colin Sorgi, a superb violinist and artistic director of the Sonar New Ensemble. Sonar is Baltimore based new music ensemble that was founded in 2007 to promote modern chamber music of note that is otherwise lacking a consistent advocate in the concert hall. Our conversation centered around Sonar's upcoming concert entitled Darkness at the Baltimore Theatre Project this coming Friday, January 18th at 8:00 pm. The featured repertoire will be George Crumb's Black Angels as well as In Iij Noct. by George Friedrich Haas.
In the interview you will also hear how Sonar is expanding the normative concert program in order to showcase Baltimore's theatre talent, the work of local artist and MICA professor Trudi Ludwig-Johnson, as well as spatial disorientation of the quartet to amplify the emotional experience of the concert. Tickets are available in advance here or at the door for ten dollars. You can also find Sonar via Facebook and Twitter.

Hey Dig-nation, the episodic Digcast is back and this month's topic is Baltimore based MC Mickey Free and his co-producer Secret Weapon Dave. They have previously been featured on TWD on both Digcast Episode V and an album review for their release Last of the Tight Wiggers.
In the interview we discuss their history of collaboration, their views on being a working class artist in Baltimore, the Wire, the myriad of collaborations on their album, Flock of Dimes, as well as their plans for the future.
Give it a listen, pick up their album for the low price of five dollars, and then spread the love. You dig?
