Lung power and laptop legend in this Jazz Junktion. Two solo sets and a duo.
A thrilling hook-up between Evan Parker (jazz hero to all) and Ikue Mori (NY downtown laptop genius, ex-DNA drummer, John Zorn and Sonic Youth collaborator). Sure to be a compelling and breathtaking show.
Ikue Mori is a trailblazer. As a pivotal No Wave drummer her distinct style became a big influence, she was an early practitioner of the drum machine and she is also a well-respected graphic designer. In DNA, with fellow noise pioneers Arto Lindsay and Tim Wright, she created a brand-new form of rock. Now she tends to deal mainly in ravishing and abstract laptop electro-acoustics that fizz with intricate textures and strange DSP contortions.
Over the last 40 years saxophonist Evan Parker has stretched the boundaries of what is possible, creating a world of sound where space and time become elastic and the distinction between music and tone is playfully, physically and joyfully blurred. His experiments with plastic reeds, circular breathing and rapid tonguing is something to behold. He has played at The Cube a few times and we are pleased to have him back, pushing the boundaries. http://www.myspace.com/ikuemorimusic
