Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

In his attempt to compose a soundtrack to a novel — Lair Hunt's The Impossibly — Roger Green, with the help of Mark Harris on saxophone and bass clarinet, Janet Feder on prepared acoustic guitar and James Han on piano, delivers an emotionally complex, sonically inverted collection of instrumentals. By way of painfully slow, stretched-out compositions, much of the music achieves the disorienting anxiety of a well-plotted story, leaving listeners unsure if they want to know what's around the corner. Reminiscent of tense film scores like those of Jon Hassell for Million Dollar Hotel and György Ligeti for Eyes Wide Shut, the score for The Impossibly reveals Green's incredible patience and vision. It'll leave you clothed in goosebumps and awash in unsettling memories

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
