Basement Performances: Ikue Mori
Fridays and Saturdays in late January and early February, The Drawing Center will present "Basement Performances" curated by renowned composer and performer John Zorn. The six cutting edge multi-media performances in our Lab will bring together improvised music with expanded cinema and feature some of Downtown New York's most adventurous musicians and visual artists.
Ikue Mori (improviser, composer)
Performing a new live visual and sound piece based on the Nathaniel Hawthorne tale "Pomegranate Seeds"
Ikue Mori started playing drums when she moved to New York City from Japan in 1977 and formed the seminal No Wave band DNA with Arto Lindsay and Tim Wright. In the mid '80s Mori employed drum machines in the unlikely context of improvised music and forged her own highly sensitive signature style. Throughout in '90s she has subsequently collaborated with numerous improvisers throughout the US, Europe, and Asia, while continuing to produce and record her own electronic music.
