Alabaster Museum Presents: Hypercolor Nick Millevoi/Scott Verrastro duo Bonnie Kane Sunday, March 8th 8:00 PM The First Banana 2152 E. Dauphin Street Philadelphia, PA $7-10 sliding scale Hypercolor (NYC): Eyal Maoz, James Ilgenfritz, and Lukas Ligeti make up Hypercolor, the NYC- based spastic jazz-rock hybrid whose ridiculous artsong craftsmanship alternately revels in complexity or brazen simplicity, favoring entropy and near-disaster over order or tidiness Like experimental grafting surgery gone horribly awry, Hypercolor bears limbs borrowed from 80s NYC No-Wave, and early jazz/rock, and orchestral rock textures. Eyal Maoz is a guitarist, composer, Tzadik and Ayler Records artist and a guest member of John Zorn's Cobra. "There's no doubt Eyal Maoz is in an exclusive club of post-Jimi Hendrix guitarists who include Nels Cline, Hilmar Jensson, Scott Fields, David Torn, and the legendary Terje Rypdal."- Michael G. Nastos - All Music Guide. September 2009. Transcending the boundaries of genre, composer and percussionist Lukas Ligeti has developed a musical style of his own that draws upon downtown NY experimentalism, contemporary classical music, jazz, electronica, and world music, particularly from Africa. Brooklyn composer, bassist, and educator James Ilgenfritz has been active in creative music since the late 90s. His work has been praised in Time Out New York, All About Jazz, and Downbeat Magazine. Recent performances include work with Lukas Ligeti, Pauline Oliveros, John Zorn, and Anthony Braxton. Nick Millevoi/Scott Verrastro (Philadelphia): Nick Millevoi is a Philadelphia-based guitarist who explores and expands upon the sound of the electric guitar through frequent use of non-traditional tunings, feedback, and raw noise. On his most recent solo-guitar releases, Numbers on the Side (Ivory Antler, 2014) and In White Sky (Flenser Records, 2012), Millevoi combines his 6- and 12-string electric guitars with drones and extreme volume to create a startling new sound. Nick is a member of the noise-rock-free jazz trio Many Arms, who have two releases on John Zorn's Tzadik label. Nick makes one half of the duo Archer Spade with trombonist Dan Blacksberg, who have performed music by composers Mick Barr, Gene Coleman, Dave Soldier, and Johnny DeBlase. Drummer/percussionist Scott Verrastro utilizes a plethora of sticks, brushes, bells, shakers, cymbals and gongs, metal, contact mics, and household items -- in addition to a traditional drum kit -- to coax a wide palette of sounds. Verrastro received a degree in music literature from Northeastern University in Boston and continues to examine many forms of music, including all styles of improvisation and traditional folk. His improv psych band Kohoutek veers from drony Krautrock-inspired psych to abstract noise freak-outs and everything in between. Verrastro also plays in an all-percussion duo with Nathan Bowles (of Pelt/Black Twigs/Spiral Joy Band) and the Philly ensemble Curanderos (an improv collaboration between Bardo Pond and Kohoutek), and often accompanies multi-instrumentalist John Stanton in Kuschty Rye Ergot and guitarist Jeff Barsky in Insect Factory. Verrastro has also collaborated with saxophonists Marshall Allen (of Sun Ra Arkestra), Peter Brotzmann, Elliott Levin, Paul Flaherty, and John Dikeman, and has performed with JANDEK, vibraphonist Khan Jamal, George Kinney (of Golden Dawn), Damo Suzuki (of Can), Richard Pinhas (of Heldon), multi-instrumentalists Mike Tamburo and Little Howlin' Wolf, and bands such as Bardo Pond, Fern Knight, and United Bible Studies. Bonnie Kane/Dave Miller (Philadelphia/NYC): From the beginning of the band W.O.O., to the development of the W.hole O.ther O.rbit network, which includes her legendary projects: W.O.O.Revelator, WORLD OF TOMORROW, and Mambo Mantis, to her duet recordings with Kevin Shea, Federico Ughi, Jeffrey Hayden Shurdut, and Ernesto Diaz- Infante, to her guest recordings with the John Spencer Blues Explosion and The Brian Wilson Shock Treatment, Bonnie Kane has always sought the magic of the moment, bringing her Fresh Sound Guarantee to every performance. Her dedication to improvisation was influenced by an unusually early and continuous exposure to Sun Ra (she grew up in Philadelphia, and was blessed by June Tyson), a background of equal parts: Hendrix, Ayler, and Zappa - and studies with Sonny Simmons, Paul McCandless, Glenn Moore, Ralph Towner (Oregon), and Jon Raskin (ROVA Saxophone Quartet). A stint in the original Club Foot Orchestra (whose members included Snakefinger (The Residents) and Eric Drew Feldman (Captain Beefheart), introduced her to electronic processing for horns, and a brief study at Mills College under Anthony Braxton solidified her direction. Bonnie terms her work in the area of feedback and extended saxophone technique, as avant-core, a music she defines as mixing the extremes of psychedelic rock and hard core with the energies of avant garde jazz. Dave Miller is a drummer, improviser, educator and composer residing in New York City. His musical projects include Fire Maidens From Outer Space (with Bonnie Kane), Pet Bottle Ningen, Guiseppi Logan Quartet, Carter/Niggenkemper/Miller (with Daniel Carter) & others. Collaborations include Martin Bisi, Jonas Labhart, Chuck Bettis, Rob Duguay, Blaise Siwula, John Zorn, Matsumoto Kenichi, Noah Preminger, Natsuki Tamura, Chris DiMeglio, Valerie Kuehne, Bern Nix, David Moss, Steve Swell, Karl Berger, Demian Richardson, Dave Burrell, Koh Ohteru and many others. links at http://www.museumfire.com/events
