JOSHUA ABRAMS with LISA ALVARADO
Natural Information Society is the name of Abrams’ group that formed in the wake of his records for Eremite. Live, the music centers around the sound of the guimbri (a Gnawan lute), integrating composition and improvisation to create hypnotic, highly rhythmic, psychedelic environments with an orientation towards uplift. This incarnation of Natural Information Society will also feature Lisa Alvarado on harmonium.

Seattle composers Jessika Kenney and Eyvind Kang meet Korean electro-acoustic artist Hyeonhee Park for an innovative distillation of traditional and experimental musics.

Jessika Kenney is a vocalist and composer known for her haunting timbral sense, as well as her profound interpretation of vocal traditions; Eyvind Kang is an acclaimed composer and violist. As a duo they have released several recordings, including The Face of the Earth (Ideologic Organ 2012), described as “serious, refined music” by the New York Times.

Hyeonhee Park majored in percussion at Korea National University of Arts, and studied electroacoustic music at Tokyo University of the Arts. She has performed multiple times in the US, Japan, China, and India, presenting her pieces “N-ary” and “H2O”, along with traditional repertoire.

Its a project based on the poem by Antonin Artaud: Faites le Mal

Met Faites le Mal, naar het gelijknamige gedicht van de Franse avant-gardistische toneelschrijver- en criticus, dichter, acteur en regisseur Antonin Artaud, betonen Eyvind Kang, Jessika Kenney en Hyeonhee Park een intens, bevreemdend, bloedmooi, dreigend en zalvend auditief eerbetoon. Met de bijdragen van de Koreaanse danseres Hyeonmi Park voegen ze tijdens deze A/V CLUB, een bijzonder ruimtelijk en lichamelijk element toe.
