Ben Vida, Eli Keszler and Jeff Ziegler in Philadelphia November 16th

From Bowerbird:

November 16th

Bowerbird Presents GATE
@ The Rotunda
4014 Walnut Street
8pm; FREE

Utilizing modular synthesizer, computer, drum kit and motorized percussive objects Vida and Keszler play an ecstatic form of electro-acoustic music.

Ben Vida is a Brooklyn based composer, improviser and sound artist. He produces compositions that use analog and digital synthesizing technologies and focus on aural phenomena and sound localization. Ben has released over twenty records on such labels as PAN, Thrill Jockey, Drag City, Amish, Bottrop-Boy, Hapna and Kranky. As both a solo artist and in collaboration he has presented his work in the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, South Korea and Japan.

Born in Brookline, Massachusetts, and currently based in New York City, Eli Keszler began playing drums at eight, and composing at twelve. Before finding an interest in experimental music and improvisation, he played in rock and hardcore bands; his work retains an intense physicality and churning, often ferocious energy. He is a graduate of the New England Conservatory, where he studied composition with Anthony Coleman and Ran Blake. He has collaborated with Phill Niblock, Roscoe Mitchell, Tony Conrad, Joe McPhee, Loren Connors, Jandek, and many others, and has recorded more than a dozen CDs and LPs for ESP-DISK, REL, and PAN.

Mats Gustafsson Interview

From All About Jazz:

Reedman Mats Gustafsson resides at the center of a hurricane of activity: relentlessly touring, curating festivals and begetting record labels. He boasts one of most distinctive sounds in free jazz, combining the extremes of scalp prickling howls with adventurous exploration of minimalist tone and timbre. Although he’s come a long way since his early days in a punk rock band in Sweden’s Lapland, that anarchic energy is never far away, revealed in collaborations with luminaries from both the Old and New Worlds, such as reedmen Peter Brötzmann, Ken Vandermark and Joe McPhee, and guitarists Thurston Moore, Jim O’Rourke and Yoshihide Otomo.
