Axel Dörner & Phil Minton @ FB Gallery, 9-9-12
Experimental Jazz concert at FB Gallery, Sunday, Sept. 9 at 8pm:
British jazz/free-improvising vocalist Phil Minton’s only performance in New York!
Minton began playing in jazz bands in the late '50s. Late his specialty became literary texts: he has sung lyrics by Daniil Kharms and Joseph Brodsky and James Joyce among others.
He is perhaps best known, however, for his completely free-form work, which involves "extended techniques" that are extremely unsettling. His vocals often include the sounds of retching, burping, screaming, and gasping, as well as childlike muttering, whining, crying and humming; he also has an ability to distort his vocal cords to produce two notes at once.
As an improviser, Minton has toured throughout the world, working with a great many creative musicians, including Peter Brötzmann, Fred Frith, John Butcher, and Derek Bailey's Company
Rare appearance in US by German trumpeter Axel Dörner who developed one of the most unique voices in free improvisation.
He established a completely different language for the trumpet in the late ‘90s, starting anew by focusing on the sound of his breath. With enough amplification, the most microscopic gestures sound like electronic flurries.
A native of Korea, Okkyung Lee has been developing her own voice in a contemporary cello performance, improvisation and composition.
With her solid classical training as a foundation, she incorporates jazz, sounds, korean traditional music, and noise with extended techniques to create her unique blend of music.
Since 2000, she has performed and recorded with numerous artists such as Laurie Anderson, Carla Bozulich, Evan Parker and John Zorn to name a few.
C. (Chih-Fu) Spencer Yeh was born in Taipei, Taiwan and is now based out of Cincinnati, Ohio.
Yeh is active both as a solo and ensemble artist, as well as with his primary ‘organized sound’ project, Burning Star Core. As an improviser, Yeh has focused on developing a personal vocabulary using violin, voice, and electronics. As a sound organizer/composer, Yeh works with all aspects available surrounding a work, aurally and physically, as elements key to the cumulative experience. He is concerned not only with the sensual aspects of sound, but the gestural qualities as well. Yeh has performed alongside and collaborated with a deep and ever-growing list of artists and groups including Tony Conrad, Evan Parker, Thurston Moore and many others, and has performed across the U.S.A. and Europe in a variety of settings and festivals.
