  • The Registry Theatre 122 Frederick Street Kitchener, ON Canada (map)

All the way from Vienna, Austria, Open Ears is proud to present Studio Dan. The name is derived from Frank Zappa's Studio Tan, recorded in 1978. The show has evolved beyond simply playing Zappa repertoire, and the ensemble strives to define its own approach to his music, as well as create musical references. The setlist contains music by the celebrated composer as well as music by Fred Firth, Edgard Varese, Karlheinz Stockhauzen and members of the band. A special feature of the night includes a performance of Zappa's Improvised Concerto for Bicycle, Prerecorded Tape and Instrumental Ensemble.
