On the evening of Friday, April 20th, we are proud to present keyboardist/songwriter Thollem, who will perform his newest work Technicolor Grey Zone, featuring the films of Martha Colburn, ACVilla and Tuia Cherici. Joining Thollem on the bill is Caleb Miller and Nick Weckman’s free jazz project Sun Trash (CMH) and jazz improve guitarist LA Jenkins. Doors 7pm, admission $5-$10. BYOB, all ages.
About Technicolor Grey Zone: Thollem has worked with each of these three filmmakers separately on various projects for years, including live performances, music videos and documentaries throughout North America and Europe including Maxxi Museum in Rome, Philadelphia Museum of Art, New Museum, SF MOMA, Crowley Theater, San Diego Institute of Art, Crystal Bridges, Toledo Museum of Art, Trinosophes, Pioneer Works, Northwest Film Forum, Sundance, Rotterdam Film Festival and more. This will be an unforgettable show, undoubtedly, bringing together the work of these 3 unique filmmakers. Thollem will accompany them with songs composed and arranged specifically for the films on a new analog synth, percussion and a microphone.
About the performers:
Thollem is a pianist, keyboardist, composer, improviser, singer-songwriter, activist, author and teacher. He’s spent his life skirting and erasing the edges of boundaries musically, culturally, geographically. His work is ever changing, evolving and responding to the times and his experiences, both as a soloist and in collaboration with hundreds of artists across idioms and disciplines. Though Thollem’s widely known as an acoustic piano player, he’s also the lead vocalist for the Italian agit-punk band Tsigoti and has recently branched out significantly into the world of electronics through a multitude of projects.
Sun Trash is a free music/ friendship duo of Nick Weckman (clarinet, trombone, voice, loops, uke, trash) and Caleb Miller (sax, MS-20, keys, clarinet, laptop, trash) based in Columbus, OH. They simply strive to make something together.
