The Trio of Wright, Lipson, and Nystrom has been playing together intensively over the past nine months, recording in Jan. and Feb. and touring the Northeast in May. A sample from that tour, in which they play with Boston guitarist Kevin Frenette, is here, and a recording from February here.
The duo of Andrew Drury and Alban Bailey is a first time event between the French guitarist and the Brooklyn percussionist, who will be playing objects scraped, bowed, and otherwise made sound-worthy on a single large tom. A first-time "meeting," more common in French performances than American, is a special event when it is between two experienced players such as these.
The final event is an improvisation by a group that has been meeting monthly over the past year, under the leadership of Eun Jung Choi, who teaches dance at Temple University, and Alban Bailley. Their explorations into movement and sound have taken them beyond conventional dance and what one might expect from musicians playing only with other musicians.
