About the artists:
As a vocalist, Jaap Blonk is unique for his powerful stage presence and almost childlike freedom in improvisation, combined with a keen grasp of structure. He has performed around the world, on all continents. With the use of live electronics and interactive visuals the scope and range of his concerts has acquired a considerable extension.
Abhilasha Chebolu is a guitarist and electro-acoustic improvisor currently residing in Columbus, OH. She leads a free jazz outfit ‘Turtle Boat’, performs solo harsh noise under the moniker ‘Null Copula’, and is a member of the jazz-adjacent midwestern-eclectic group ‘Gault’.
Salva Bryn is a pianist and electronic musician born in Columbus, Ohio. Improvised ivory, soul crushing 808s, ethereal alchemy synths, abstract cacophony, breath and voice are all recorded, looped, and mangled, live, transforming into evolving emotional compositions.
