About the artists:
Thollem is a perpetually traveling pianist, keyboardist, composer, improviser, singer-songwriter, activist, author and teacher. He’s spent his life skirting and erasing the edges of boundaries musically, culturally and 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. Thollem’s known internationally as an acoustic piano player in the free jazz and post-classical worlds, as the lead vocalist for the Italian agit-punk band Tsigoti and as an electronic keyboardist through a multitude of projects.
Exploring the sonic fringes of psychedelia, kraut rock, ambient, drone and noise, the Columbus, Ohio collective Manos formed in the fall of 2017, inspired to create “cosmic music for a hallucinatory reality”. Consisting of solo artist Deckard Croix along with John Godshalk and Larry Durica (Floorian) and Jacquie Sanborn (Wake the Trees), Manos released their self-titled debut album in February of 2019.
Columbus-based Yul Brynner’s Ghost is Brian Werstler (electric guitar) and Bill Stoner (cello).
