Ikue Mori is as one of the most singular musicians in modern music history. She emerged in the late 70s as the percussionist in DNA, a jagged, viciously dissonant trio led by singer-guitarist Arto Lindsay. A crucial part of New York’s no-wave scene, the band created noisy koans that relied on conceptual brio rather than traditional artistry—almost no one in DNA used conventional instrumental technique, and Mori had no musical training or experience when she was recruited. The playing she did back then remains arresting today—uninhibited by formal baggage, she masterfully blended faux-tribal primitivism with a weirdly melodic sensibility.
