On the evening of Sunday, September 8th, we are proud to present Asheville avant-folk chamber duo Okapi, along with experimental saxophonist Andrew Kovaleski (CMH) and O(f)verandas, the experimental ambient guitar and electronic music project of Bernard Iannone. Doors 7:30pm, cover $5. BYOB, all ages.
About the performances and performers:
Okapi utilizes upright bass, cello, and voice through aggressive (yet intimate) orchestrations, which carry messages encouraging individual empowerment, healthy growth, and the conscious confrontation with reality.
Andrew Kovaleski is a saxophonist and bedroom pop musician from Columbus, OH. He is currently attending Youngstown State University for his Master’s degree in saxophone performance. His improvisations explore the meditative energy of repetition and the raw, natural sound of the saxophone. His first major bedroom pop album, ‘The Chronicles of the Lizard Kid,’ tells the tale of the creation, life, love, and eventual death of the Lizard Kid, an anthropomorphic lizard child who is both a man-eating killer monster and a person with human emotions.
O(f)verandas is the experimental ambient guitar and electronic music project of Bernard Iannone. It can be described as experimental drone panoramas, otherworldly guitar loops, and psychedelic ambient collage.
