Patrick Shiroishi is the hardest-working man in LA's experimental music community. He drones, he textures, he gestures, he squawks, he pitter-pats; most importantly, he always plays with grace. For this performance he will be playing Malfatti's "benk you," a piece written for him at the request of The Unwrinkled Ear.
Radu Malfatti is one of the most thoughtful musicians to have emerged from the first days of improvised music. He cut his teeth in the early 70s playing with Paul Lovens, Peter Kowald, Irène Schweizer, Misha Mengelberg, Derek Bailey and every pioneer in the field. He spent significant time in London collaborating with all the South African expats, especially Louis Moholo-Moholo and the Brotherhood of Breath. His music slowly changed into a deeply focussed attention to sound in both its physical properties and its environmental context. If Pauline Oliveros inaugaurated Deep Listening, it can be said that he started Deep Performing.
Since 1981 he has been intensively involved in composing and in 1994 joined the recently-formed composer group Wandelweiser.
How he describes himself:
16thdecember 1943 born in innsbruck
1965-70 looked for the Academy of Music Graz
studied with eje thelin
spoke with sonny rollins
drank coffee with luigi nono
likes to play tennis with doris
read a lot, forgot everything
