Victor Haskins' "Skein"

A “skein" has two definitions:

1) a tangled or complicated arrangement, state, or situation.
2) a flock of wild geese or swans in flight, typically in a V-shaped formation.

 

 

The members of Victor Haskins’ “Skein” bring these definitions to life through the highly interactive interplay in which they engage with each other, clearly exhibiting a dynamic chemistry that concertgoers will immediately recognize and feel. The collective of musicians in the Skein all explore the possibilities of collective improvisation through the forum of original compositions crafted by Haskins for this specific configuration of players and personalities. The most recent documented recording of the “Skein” is on Victor’ latest album--Showing Up. This album of all-original music is available now.  The most recent project for Victor Haskins' “Skein” involves a series of compositions he has composed based on his interpretations of rhythms from the Afro-Brazilian religion, Candomblé.
