Event Details


A splendid Texan double-bill of genre-defying fusion groove and jazz-informed global soundscape excursions. You’ll be immersed in streams of rhythmic ideas melted into contemporary and elegant languages, your body will shake while your mind gets lifted. Aurum Son are coming back from Houston to our backyard, and Brianne Sargent is bringing once more an outstanding trio!


AURUM SON (Houston)

Aurum Son is a genre-busting electroacoustic multi-cultural ensemble from Houston, Tx. The group tightly blends global sounds with jazz, folk, improvised music, and experimental soundscapes. Taking notes from Sun Ra and Avant Garde Jazz, therefore, experimenting with new perspectives of old musical patterns, the group is committed to themes of outer space, spiritual alchemy, the spirit-warrior journey, and transformation. Aurum Son is the recipient of Houston’s Fringe Festival 2020, “Best in Show” award, and they can be heard on all major streaming platforms with their latest releases,  “Thistle” and “Red Clover”.

James Murphy (flute), Danielle Gibson (synth), Mark Medina (percussion), Adam Carman (percussion), Andrew Martinez (guitar) …and of course,  Sonia Flores (bass & vocals)

Sonia Flores is an upright bassist and vocalist raised in Houston, TX. Flores is active in a diverse range of Houston artistic communities. To some, she is known for her intensely emotional and autobiographical songs, accompanied by her own double bass playing, and as a bass player, for her free jazz improvisational style, but also for her original songwriting.



Brianne Sargent (cellist, bass player, synths/keys, vocals) is the co-leader of Skinny Cooks and plays with Polyphonic Spree, Alejandro Escovedo, Mattie Michelle, and many others. She is also a composer, arranger, and producer. She graduated from Interlochen Arts Academy in 2006, attended Booker T Washington High School for the Performing and Visual Arts from 2002-2005, and graduated from Baldwin-Wallace Music Conservatory in 2010. She has appeared in multiple articles written by KXT Radio, KERA, the Dallas Observer, and Voyage Dallas and has appeared on PBS for the Austin City Music Hall Of Fame induction in 2022—while sharing the stage with Sheila E—playing cello for Alejandro Escovedo. Her bass playing has made it to the Billboard charts with local rapper phenomenon FloZilla on the Truth to Power Project and her cello playing has made it to Billboard charts on the Todd Dulaney song Revelation 4.

An active educator, bandleader, and sideman for various DFW projects, Wes Case can be found performing in traditional jazz settings, exploring his playful arrangements of classic pop tunes, and original modern jazz projects Wes recorded and released his debut album, E Fado, during a trip back home in 2018. Upon graduation from UNT’s jazz program in 2015, he began performing and traveling throughout Latin America, studying Uruguay’s folk music Candombe in Montevideo, Quechua (an Andean language) while in Peru, as well the rich world of rhythm with Filó Machado(of Djavan) in Brazil.
