cropped1.jpgDafna Naphtali (live audio processing, electronics, voice); Ursel Schlicht (piano, prepared piano); Peter Zummo (trombone, electronics, voice) :: July 24, 2007 8pm :: The Stone, corner of E. 2nd street and Avenue C in the East Village, Manhattan, New York City :: Admission is $10.

A trio specially convened for this event, each artist has a seasoned and unique attitude toward her / his instrument as both extended sound source and a musical extension of the self in continual stylistic experimentation and boundary pushing. With her well-honed vision of live audio processing (using Max / MSP programs she’s been writing and performing with since 1993), Dafna performs her manipulations of improvised trombone, piano and voice, as any instrumentalist would as the trio reacts, listens and designs playful interactions, deep soundscapes, general mayhem.

Peter Zummo (composer/director/trombonist) has been composing for ensemble since 1967, and for trombone since 1971, in pursuit of the evolving boundary of music-making and brass culture. From 1975 to the present, he has performed and recorded for composers, ensembles, bands, film, theatre groups, and dance companies worldwide. As a professor of music at Ohio Wesleyan University, he teaches in the New York Arts Program, a program of the Great Lakes Colleges Association. Since 1978, he has been artistic director of The Loris Bend Foundation, Inc., a non-profit presenter of music, dance, and media. Professional studies were with Carmine Caruso, Stuart Dempster, James Fulkerson, Dick Griffin, Makanda Ken McIntyre, Roswell Rudd, and Sam Rivers.

Ursel Schlicht is an internationally active pianist, composer, improviser, scholar and educator. She has played improvised music, jazz, new music and world music in Europe, North America, Canada, Russia, Mexico and Australia. Current projects include her ensemble Ex Tempore, duos with flutist-composer Robert Dick, bassist Reuben Radding, guitarist Bruce Arnold, guitarist Hans Tammen, a duo and quartet with Australian saxophonist Adam Simmons. She is a member of the Laura Andel Orchestra an of Hans Tammen’s Third Eye Orchestra. Ursel Schlicht has recorded on Leo, Cadence, CIMP, Hybrid, Konnex, Muse-Eek and Nemu Records, and has created improvisational scores for silent film and music for various ensembles and dance theater. She holds a doctorate from the University of Hamburg and is currently teaching at Ramapo College.

Dafna Naphtali is a sound-artist and improviser-composer from an eclectic background of music-making. A singer/guitarist/electronic-musician she performs and composes using custom Max /MSP / Jitter programs for sound processing of voice and other instruments that she has been writing since 1992. Besides her composing and improvised projects, she co-leads the digital chamber punk ensemble, What is it Like to be a Bat? with Kitty Brazelton (http://www.whatbat.org) and has collaborated / performed with Lukas Ligeti, David First, Joshua Fried, Ras Moshe, Alexander Waterman, Kathleen Supové, Hans Tammen, and the late Sarodist Stephen James, among others. She’s received commissions and awards from NY Foundation for the Arts, NY State Council on the Arts, Meet the Composer, Experimental TV Center, American Composers Forum, Brecht Forum, and residencies at STEIM (Holland), Music OMI and iEAR. She has performed and traveled widely and under usual circumstances for her music. In more serious moments she teaches and gives workshops at universities in the US and in Europe and teaches, programs and consults about Max/MSP since1996, having done sound design and/or programming work for the projects of Jin Hi Kim, Shelley Hirsch, Pamela Z, Phoebe Legere, Fred Frith, Jim Staley, Henry Threadgill, Steve Coleman, Chico Freeman and others.
