"A multiracial jam army that freestyles with cool telekinesis between the lustrous menace of Miles Davis' On The Corner, the slash-and-om of 1970s King Crimson, and Jimi Hendrix' moonwalk across side three of Electric Ladyland."
- David Fricke, Rolling Stone

Hallwalls is ecstatic to announce a week-long artist residency with the inimitable, transdimensional music entity best known as Burnt Sugar the Arkestra Chamber. The residency will culminate in two evenings of music - the first night will feature music generated from Lawrence D. "Butch" Morris' Conduction system for collective improvisation. The second night will feature the groups' repertoire of re-invented sonic resources culled from the depths of James Brown, Miles Davis, David Bowie, Sun Ra, Jimi Hendrix, Steely Dan, Melvin Van Peebles and beyond. Our city will be transformed as the Burnt Sugar Mothership lands in Buffalo for a rare cosmic convergence with the Outer Spaceways...
