Inzinzac is a band that ignores borders. Led by French-born guitarist Alban Bailly, the trio’s sound references a wide swath of influences including atonal no-wave rock, Eastern European melodies, free jazz and Japanese noise bands. The result is a borderless sound that stretches beyond the usual sound of guitar, sax and drums – intense, razor-sharp, and yet still entrenched in melody.
The performance will be enhanced by reactive live projections from Patrick Proctor
Dan Scofield: tenor sax
Joe Moffett: trumpet
Alban Bailly: guitar
Eli Litwin: drums
Nick Millevoi is a Philadelphia-based guitarist who explores and expands upon the sound of the electric guitar through frequent use of non-traditional tunings, feedback, and raw noise. On his most recent solo-guitar release, In White Sky (Flenser Records), Millevoi combines his 6- and 12-string electric guitars with drones and extreme volume to create a startling new work. Nick is a member of the noise-rock-free jazz trio Many Arms, whose self-titled fourth album was released in 2012 by John Zorn's Tzadik label. Nick also has an ongoing collaboration with bassist/guitarist Edward Ricart whose first LP will be released in 2013 on Gaffer Records, and makes one half of the duo Archer Spade with trombonist Dan Blacksberg.
Nick has toured extensively as a solo guitarist as well as with Many Arms, Make A Rising, Electric Simcha, and Archer Spade. With Dan Blacksberg, the duo curate the Archer Spade Performance Series, a monthly concert series that has brought musicians from all over the globe to perform in Philadelphia. Nick has collaborated with many great artists, including Gene Coleman, Toshimaru Nakamura, Keir Neuringer, Thomas Buckner, Ken Ueno, Ches Smith, Travis LaPlante, Weasel Walter, Kevin Shea, Joe Lally, and many others. Millevoi is also a member of the bands Deveykus (Tzadik) and Electric Simcha, and is a former member of Make A Rising.
The Village Voice has called Nick a "guitar-wielding, audience-massacring hero," and music journal Burning Ambulance has described him as, "A fierce player who knows his way around a riff and can tie himself, and the listener, in knots with his contorted, passionate soloing." Foxy Digitalis called In White Sky, "a searing collection of exploded guitar compositions." Millevoi's music has been reviewed by SPIN, NPR Music, The Onion AV Club, Wire magazine, and many others.
