Julia Reidy, Alan Licht, and Ulrich Krieger
20 June 2023
For MONO 46 we delve into a triple bill of extended instrumental mastery.
On World In World, their recent record for the Black Truffle label, Julia Reidy (DE/AU) crafts a work that is utterly unique and exists in parallel between the traditions of extended song form, just intonation composition and exploratory guitar work. Merging hovering clouds of voice amidst clusters of open harmonic guitar flutters their work is entirely its own universe.
New York guitarist and occasional shortwave experimentalist Alan Licht (US) is well known for his work as a provocative improvisor, as part of Lee Ranaldo’s band (and Text Of Light), as well as a wealth of other legendary East Coast acts such as Love Child. For his presentation at MONO he presents a series of solo works for guitar that build of his recent suite of editions.
Joining them is German-born, California-based composer and saxophonist Ulrich Krieger (US/DE). Having performed along side Lou Reed in the Metal Machine Trio, Krieger’s work expands the capacity of his chosen instruments. Often conceptually driven, his performances are equally parts a matter of physicality, gesture and timbre.
Performances from 7.00PM sharp
