[oddmusic] ROULETTE: Larry Ochs Kihnoua, Blues Control + Laraaji, Shelley Hirsch + Simon Ho


Exciting week at Roulette!

Larry Ochs + Kihnoua
Monday, March 26, 2012 @ 8:00 pm
KIHNOUA is a term borrowed from ancient Greek that might have meant "the difference." Or perhaps: "the unity of opposites" …on the one hand oral traditions; on the other hand new-jazz spontaneity. A long-time fan of traditional Korean p'ansori folk-singing and of Korean sinawi improvisation, it is with great pleasure that Larry Ochs presents music that intermingles the thoughts, sounds and structures of "improvised music" (including jazz) with influences from the older sound-world of Korea and from other folk-music/blues influences worldwide. The core trio of Amendola, Lee and Ochs have played together since 2007, with Trevor Dunn joining the band for the first time on this spring 2012 six-city tour.

"discombobulating and evocative, full of echoing percussion and effervescent melodies" Pitchfork
Roulette is pleased to present the rare collaborative performance of Queens based noise rock duo, Blues Control, and new age zither artist, Laraaji (Best known for his work with Brian Eno). The two first worked together for RVNG Intl's FRKWYS series - teaming young artists (Excepter, Mirror Mirror, James Ferraro, Laurel Halo, Dan `Oneohtrix' Lopatin, Psychic Ills, Julianna Barwick) with their illustrious elders (Juan Atkins, Anthony Moore, Carter Tutti, and JG Thirlwell among others). NOT to be missed!

Over two nights, Shelley Hirsch and Simon Ho celebrate the release of their new CD, "Where Were You Then?" which blends songs, story telling and rich atmospheric soundscapes and represents a new chapter in their longstanding collaboration. "It's an album to be savored with complete attention and it's like a love letter itself, enveloped in the naked truth", wrote Ernie Paik in the Chattanooga Post. Shelley and Simon are joined by a 9 member ensemble for this two night performance. Special support from Creative Capital.
