Ken Field Alto Sax 4tet + Drums: Animated Films of Karen Aqua

Field brought a unique program of live music and animated film to the ICA/Boston for a single special performance on Friday March 22nd, 2019 for a sold-out performance.  The performing ensemble consisted of Field, Stan Strickland, Lihi Haruvi, & Neil Leonard on alto saxes, with Savannah Marshall on drums.

Field teamed with his wife, award-winning independent animator Karen Aqua, to create soundtracks for her animated films for several decades until her untimely passing in 2011. In 2017 Field was invited by the Animator Festival (Poland) to perform live for a program of Aqua's films and assembled an unusual instrumentation of four alto saxophones and a drummer. The resultant performance was celebrated as the highlight of the festival.
