SXIP SHIREY with special guests Ned Rothenberg, Terry Dame, Sonny Singh, Adam Matta, Rachelle Garniez, Rachel Price and Xavier Smith

and featuring an new arrangement of a composition by Shelley Segal

With harmonica and megaphone in hand, Sxip Shirey taps the loop-sampler with his foot. Dirty hip-hop beats scroll out of the sound system, as the human beatboxer kicks in a counter rhythm that unfurls a tight breathy snare for a distinctly urban sound. Before the night's over, shards of blue light will bathe the stage as the earthbound shadow reaches for the cosmic: red marbles rolling in electroacoustic glass bowls, industrial flutes, bass siren whistles, a regurgitated music box, and deep klezmer mutant harmonica.
