Experimental Voice in 3 Acts

Saturday, October 1st 8:30 PM $10 Suggested Donation

Gelsey Bell – voice/piano
Odeya Nini – voice
Maria Stankova – voice
Gelsey Bell is a singer, songwriter, and scholar. She has released two studio albums, Under A Piano (2005) and In Place of Arms (2010), and two experimental albums, February (2008) and Love Is Just a Crack In the Space of You (2009). Composer and vocalist Odeya Nini, constructs acoustic, electro acoustic, and electronic music, incorporating experimental improvisation and malleable forms. Maria Stankova is a vocalist/composer who grew up in Sofia, Bulgaria. Her recent musics explore the liberating powers of restriction and the (im)possibilities of timbre in both performance and composition.

Loop 2.4.3

Saturday, October 8th 8:30 PM $10 Suggested Donation

Ensemble, Et Al. 8:30 PM

A Brooklyn-based pseudo-classical percussion ensemble led by Ron Tucker.

Loop 2.4.3 9:30 PM
Loop 2.4.3 is a composer/performer duo that has drawn comparisons to Steve Reich, Battles, Harry Partch, Moondog, Konono No.1, Brian Eno, and Belle Orchestre – an assortment that alludes to their hard to classify, yet visceral aesthetic.

Thomas Kozumplik – percussion
Lorne Watson – percussion


This concert showcases 2 groups that both feature drums and keyboard percussion, yet with very different and uniquely interesting results. Melodicism and infectious rhythm are uniting factors, but ensemble, et al focuses more on meditative grooves, while Loop 2.4.3 creates sonic journeys tinged with romanticism and psychedelia.

Ron Tucker, the creator of ensemble, et al, met Loop 2.4.3 at a live show and asked to buy the score for their work, Zodiac Dust, to perform it with a group he was creating. This stimulated Kozumplik and Watson to actually write the piece out! It seems natural that these two groups will now share the stage for the first time.
