Burnt DotLos Angeles, CA
Burnt Dot is an LA-based noise and experimental jazz ensemble founded by Sarah Belle Reid (trumpet) and Ryan Gaston (modular synthesizer).
Reid and Gaston started Burnt Dot to explore open forms of spontaneous creation. The group is a fluid ensemble of sound and visual artists who are committed to creating work that is as quirky, fiery, and thought-provoking as the world that inspires it.
Burnt Dot’s performances range in scope from art museums and concert halls tointermedia installations and site-specific improvisations. Equally committed to outreach and education, Burnt Dot frequently presents workshops and lectures to students inmusic, improvisation, and creative technology at universities such as California Institute of the Arts, University of Oregon, Hendrix College, and UC Irvine, among others.
