Kills to Kisses (NYC) | Trepanning Trio (CLE) at Survival Kit – Friday, October 17, 2014

survivalkitKILLS TO KISSES is the solo electronic art- rock project of Australian bassist, multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and DJ Lisa Dowling. She lives and works in Brooklyn, NY and will be releasing her debut full length album in 2015.

More about Kills to Kisses:

Praised as “Bjork-like” and “innovative” by the New York Times, Lisa Dowling has had her ears and fingers in the post-classical, post-rock, post-post world of sound since she graduated from music school. Wanting to give her beloved instrument a fresh voice, she created kills to kisses to showcase the unique and surprising capabilities of an instrument that is usually not recognized for its virtuosity. Her music is bass-centric, but not in the ways you would expect; luscious, pulsating melodies soar over funky bass riffs and electronic drones creating a “brusquely subtle or exquisitely dense” (Inanna Naked) cinematic language that will beg of your hips. Her mastery of looping technology, “delicate, pure voice” (Woodstock Times), and serious chops create a veritable tour-de-force that is a breath of fresh air. Kills to kisses has been presented at the Berkshire Fringe Festival, the Contagious Sounds Series and regularly performs in and around NYC.

Trepanning Trio with BONESHAKER and Baekdudaegan @ Guide To Kulchur

Trepanning Trio will be playing a free improv set at Guide To Kulchur: Text, Art, and News (1386 W65, Cleveland, Ohio 44102) with BONESHAKER and Baekdudaegan (Bbob Drake/Alex Henry/J Guy Laughlin) on Wednesday, June 18, 2014.

What is Boneshaker? (Mars Williams / Paal Nilssen-Love / Kent Kessler)
Three prolific powerhouse musicians, carrying among them a Grammy nomination and decades of experience with the top ensembles in the world.

About the artists:

PAAL NILSSEN-LOVE

Norwegian phenom Paal Nilssen-Love has established himself over the last decade as one of the most important voices in improvised music from his generation. A powerful drummer of unbounded energy, he shows an ongoing ability to break physical and musical boundaries on his continual hunt for new collaborations and experiences. Currently, Nilssen-Love is active with musicians such as Mats Gustafsson, Peter Brotzmann, Ken Vandermark, Evan Parker, Sten Sandell, Otomo Yoshihide and Frode Gjerstad. Some of the world-renowned groups he performs with include The Thing, Atomic, Brotzmann/Kondo/Pupillo/Nilssen-Love, and TheVandermark/Nilssen-Love Duo

KENT KESSLER

Kent Kessler, born in Crawfordsville, Indiana, grew up mostly in Chicago. After seeing the Montreaux Festival on television in 1970 he became interested in jazz. Kent studied musique concrete at Chicago Musical College in the period from 1977-1983, playing in various punk rock and free-improv groups in Chicago and taking time off to wander in Brazil. Kessler started concentrating on the double bass, after having played trombone, guitar, electric bass, short-wave radio and various other instruments and non-instruments. He joined the Hal Russell NRG Ensemble in 1985. Kent gained his first international experience when the group went on to record for ECM and tour in Europe. In the 1990′s Kessler became better known as a frequent bandmate of Ken Vandermark. He has kept the trans-Atlantic connection by playing in groups led by Georg Graewe, Peter Brötzmann and Daniele D’Agaro, and performing with many other European improvisors. Kent has a solo CD on Okkadisk, “Bull Fiddle,” and appears on dozens of other recordings.

MARS WILLIAMS

Mars Williams is an open-minded musician, composer and educator who commutes easily  between free jazz, funk, hip-hop and rock. Mars has played and or recorded with The Psychedelic Furs, Billy Idol, Massacre, Fred Frith, Bill Laswell, Ministry, Power Station, Die Warzau, The Waitresses, Kiki Dee, Pete Cosey, Billy Squier, DJ Logic, Wayne Kramer, John Scoffield, Charlie Hunter, Kurt Elling, The Mission UK, Swollen Monkeys, Mike Clark, Gerry Garcia, Naked Raygun, Friendly Fires, The Untouchables, Blow Monkeys, MC5, and virtually every leading figure of Chicago’s and New York City’s “downtown” scene.
John Zorn credits Mars as “one of the true saxophone players–someone who takes pleasure in the sheer act of blowing the horn. This tremendous enthusiasm is an essential part of his sound, and it comes through each note every time he plays. Whatever the situation, Mars plays exciting music. In many ways he has succeeded in redefining what versatility means to the modern saxophone player.”

In 2001 Mars received a Grammy Nomination for Best Contemporary Jazz Record with his group Liquid Soul.

Despite his busy touring schedule with Liquid Soul and The Psychedelic Furs, Mars manages to stay active on the Chicago underground improvising scene. In recent years he has toured and recorded with the Peter Brötzmann Tentet, Full Blast, Scorch Trio, the Vandermark 5, and Cinghiale, teaming him with such musicians as Ken Vandermark, Hamid Drake, Michael Zerang, William Parker, Kent Kessler, Tim Daisy, Fredric Lonberg Holm, Peter Brotzmann, Joe McPhee, Paal Nilssen-Love, Mike Reed, Jeb Bishop, Harrison Bankhead, Dave Rempis, Kidd Jordan and Matts Gustafson. He performs weekly in Chicago along with Jim Baker, Steve Hunt, and Brian Sandstrom in the improvising quartet “Extraordinary Popular Delusions”. As a bandleader, he continues to perform and record CDs with his own free-jazz groups, the NRG Ensemble, Witches & Devils, Slam, XmarsX, Mars Trio, and The Soul Sonic Sirkus which features improvising musicians and aerial circus performers.

Along with Die Warsau’s Van Christie, Mars has started Ratking Music, a production company focusing on music for film and television.
