Jan 12: Fistortion (Gorlen/Kim/Korber/Pedersen), ready box (Dimuzio/Greenlief), & OMMO (Moon/Otte)

Fistortion is an American coming of age drama that tells the story of four boys and a mild mannered monster who go on a hike across the countryside to view the dead body of a missing child.

OMMO is an electro-acoustic duo comprised of Julie Moon and Adria Otte. Launched in 2014 with collaborative projects inspired by shared interests in Korean diasporic identity, ritual and impressionistic harmonies, the duo seeks opportunities to explore past traditions through a contemporary and conscious framework, employing varying configurations of piano, voice, violin and electronics in original compositions.

Thomas Dimuzio – live electronics, sampling
Phillip Greenlief – tenor saxophone

Pairing extended technique, multi phonics, and circular breathing of saxophone virtuoso Philip Greenlief with, live sampling and processing pioneer, Thomas Dimuzio, ready box transforms the power of reeds and real-time musique concrete into soaring to new realms. Two masters of their instruments forming an elemental core where air meets electronics. A paradoxical and no boundaries aesthetic fuse nuance, bombast, consonance, noise, density and space into an approach rapt in musicality and the moment.
