Ensemble Bio:

The Lanman Martinez duo first formed in the spring of 2017 to explore a reworked version of Lanman's original work for saxophone and harp for a performance at the Society of Composers National Conference at the University of Western Michigan in 2017. The duo continues exploring this unique formation and proposes another performance of this work for electric guitar and saxophone along with Dorothy Chang's In Quite Light for the 2018 NASA biannual conference.
