Together since 1984, Susan Mazer and Dallas Smith have merged their
individual expertise to create a new sound and musical experience
for contemporary instrumental music -- blending the electro acoustic concert grand harp and woodwinds.
Both in composition and expression, their music offers a depth and
richness that crosses boundaries of genres and expression.
Melodies are rich; rhythms are distinct; and the dialogue between
them is enticing, challenging, and sophisticated. As a listener,
you will hear a freshness in each listening, as they venture into
new musical arenas in each performance and recording. Each CD is
a journey into the musical and personal expressions of their dialogue
as soloists and as musical collaborators.
Their live performances have awed audiences at major jazz and arts
events, including the Peter Britt Festival, the Arts Festival of
Atlanta, the UNR Performing Arts Series, and other well known music
More than two musicians, their combined sound is symphonic and rich
in musical expression and sonority. In many recordings, they are
joined by virtuoso percussionist and drummers such as Moyes Lucas,
Rayford Griffin, Eric Middleton, Andy Heglund, and others -- adding
still another rich musical element.
