About The Event
RKIII, a live electronic trio from Winston-Salem, will be having an official album release on Saturday, September 8 at The Local.
RKIII is a former jazz trio pushing the bounds of what musicians can achieve with modern technology, utilizing computers as improvisational tools and incorporating electronic sounds into live performance. The three members are all seasoned veterans from the NC session player circuit, and have honed their instruments, as well as the electronic extensions of their instruments, to virtuosic levels.
Their new album, Modern Improv II, is their second full length album and shows further development along the path towards the style of music they’re creating. The band has a vision of being able to improvise as fluently and expressively with electronic music and sounds as they do with traditional jazz. Modern Improv II is a continuous adventure, exploring new rhythmic ideas, sounds and harmonies taken from a hugely diverse background in music.
