+ duo B. (San Francisco Bay Area)

Lisa Mezzacappa - acoustic bass
Jason Levis - drums


duo B. (San Francisco Bay Area)

duo B., the San Francisco Bay Area improvising and composing ensemble of percussionist Jason Levis and bassist Lisa Mezzacappa, is a musical think tank of grand schemes and impossible scenarios.  Over a dozen years, the ensemble has developed and refined its singular approach to improvisation and composition, through cross-disciplinary projects with film, collaborations with improvising instrumentalists at home and abroad, and immersion in the improvised-composed musical worlds of masters Wadada Leo Smith, Anthony Braxton, Cecil Taylor and Henry Threadgill. Over the past two years, duo B. has embarked on a new journey in long-form improvisation with its latest project, an exploration of the musical vision of pianist Cecil Taylor, re-imagined for bass and drums. The result is a new release, No Ins & Outs, released on Queen Bee Records September 2017 and followed by the group’s first East Coast tour.

Wednesday 13 September @ Outpost, 8pm $10 or b/o


Dane Rousay – solo percussion (San Antonio Texas) + Variant State

Dane Rousay is a drummer and composer based in San Antonio, Texas. “I work mostly by improvising on acoustic drum-kit, looking for exciting or emotional overlaps of rhythm, speed, and texture.

“My newest work is "anatomize", a series of chance compositions and improvisations aiming to magnify the minimalist percussion performance with a bold and enveloping sound. Like much of my work, it involves a duet of precision and accident. Recorded in 2017, it is my second album on percussion and drum-kit.”



Variant State

Variant State [....] is a project instigated by Howard Martin (reeds and trombone), Jesse Kenas-Collins (trumpet, reeds, feedback objects), and Michael Rosenstein (amplified surfaces and objects, modified field recordings, oscillators.) Working In various configurations, they explore the interactions of acoustic instrumentation, electronics, multiphonics, abraded and degraded recordings, and feedback within collectively improvised settings. Their open-form sonic investigations draw on aesthetics of spontaneous interaction and dynamic cooperative structures.
