JESSE COLLINS

Café Fixe
1642 Beacon Street (Washington Square)
Brookline, MA 02445
617-879-2500
8 p.m./$5

Focusing on the confusion of brass and woodwind instruments as well as simple systems of analog feedback, JESSE COLLINS works toward pulling compelling shape from these unstable materials. Working and living in Boston since 2008 he collaborates in various ad hoc groupings of improvisers in and around town in addition to more steady projects like Deleuzer & Funny Money. His solo works are funneled into small editions of recordings and occasional live performances.

This program is supported in part by a grant from the Brookline Commission for the Arts, a local agency supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council.

Akiko obtained her B.A. in music from Mills College, and received her M.A. in Experimental Music/Composition at Wesleyan University.

Non-Event Presents
Our October Experimental Coffee House

JESSE SUMMERS

Café Fixe
1642 Beacon Street (Washington Square)
Brookline, MA 02445
617-879-2500
8 p.m./$5

JESSE SUMMERS is a Boston-based musician and sound artist working with location recordings and digital and analog processing. Situated amid precise electroacoustic fabrications, DIY sound collage, and artists expanding the use of sound, his work approaches listening as a multivalent, embodied practice. Starting with an attentiveness to how technology, the environment, and the human body are imbricated in ever-shifting ways, he treats sound as an incision into the cultural, historical, and geopolitical landscape. Through an uncanny interplay of urban, industrial, residential, and nocturnal sources, converging with a range of digital mutations, he renders elusive and alien landscapes through sound.
