Tomutonttu
Jooklo Duo with Bill Nace

Tomutonttu AKA Finnish sound artist Jan Anderzén (Kemialliset Ystävät) returns to ISSUE. In his first US performance since 2010, Tomutonttu presents lyrical and layered abstractions of reeds, samples, and electronics. The Italian free jazz combo Jooklo Duo are joined in a trio by guitarist Bill Nace— best known as half of Body/Head— with whom they released a collaborative album in 2012.

FRI, APRIL 11 – 8:00PM
Mark Fell
$15 / $12 MEMBERS + STUDENTS
In recent years Mark Fell’s practice has included a number of tonal works. These typically have little or no rhythmic content and often explore unfamiliar tuning systems. Tonight Fell presents a tonal mix of extended duration including new and unreleased works by himself as well as references to the various traditions that have informed his practice. In particular Fell is keen to establish a dialogue between the American minimalists, including Terry Riley and the more recent works of Zbigniew Karkowski, Carl Michael von Hausswolff and others, engaging the spectrally lush tonal structures pioneered by Christophe Charles and popularized by Christian Fennesz.
