Artist of the day: The Brian Ransom Ceramic Art Ensemble
As Radiohead Week continues here on Soundcheck, let's check in on another artist who specializes in unique, experimental music: The Brian Ransom Ceramic Art Ensemble.
Ransom is a professor of ceramics at Eckerd College, and for decades, he has performed around the country on a series of ceramic woodwinds of his own creation. The result is a strange and beautiful blend of new age and world music. Click here for a 2006 story about Ransom's art.
On Thursday, Ransom's Ceramic Art Ensemble will perform at a fundraiser for Academy Prep's Building Without Borders. There will be a dinner, silent auction, music and more at 6:30 p.m. at Fox Hall on the Eckerd campus. Tickets are $35-$45. Click here for details.
