November 13 - Little Women and Qfwfq Duo at The Music Workshop

Little Women
"Little Women is terrifying. Their first full-length, Teeth, is the kind of stuff that haunts Archie Shepp and Cecil Taylor in their worst nightmares. The Brooklyn quartet's saxophone bleats, beyond-angular guitar lines and purposeful, spastic drumming commands'll find incredible form and structure and even hints at traditional bebop tonality within Little Women's incredibly dense walls of sound, which effectively separates them from the bulk of free jazz/noise acts...Anyone who has seen this live has first-hand knowledge of terror." - Impose magazine

Qfwfq Duo
Composer and sound artist Andrea Pensado teamed up with digital artist Greg Kowalski in Krakow, Poland, in 1997 to form Qfwfq duo. The duo's main concern has been live sound-image interaction and the use of movement to articulate complex sounds and digital visual material. Their work is highly performatic and often involves the use of sensors and/or motion tracking devices. They moved to the US after having lived 5 years in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Sabir Mateen + New Language Collaborative and Forbes Graham

We're really excited to present Sabir Mateen on Thursday. I've personally seen him play with Cecil Taylor's large ensemble, and he has also worked with many, many, other musicians over the years. Including local musicians such as the members of New Language Collaborative.

So we really hope that you will come down to Hyde Park tomorrow and check out the music:

Sabir Mateen (reeds and woodwinds)
with New Language Collaborative:
Eric Zinman (piano, euphonium)
Glynis Lomon (cello)
Syd Smart (percussion)
and Forbes Graham (trumpet)

This show is a $10 suggested donation.
