Eventbrite - Oren Ambarchi/Will Guthrie duo

First Boston performance of the electrifying duo of guitarist and multi-instrumentalist OREN AMBARCHI and drummer and percussionist WILL GUTHRIE.

Oren Ambarchi is a composer and multi-instrumentalist whose work focuses mainly on the exploration of the guitar, “re-routing the instrument into a zone of alien abstraction where it’s no longer easily identifiable as itself. Instead, it’s a laboratory for extended sonic investigation”. (The Wire, UK). His music has been released on Editions Mego, Touch, Tzadik, Erstwhile, and his own Black Truffle imprint.

Will Guthrie is an Australian drummer / percussionist living in France. He works in many different settings of music: live performance, improvisation and studio composition using various combinations of drums, percussion, objects, junk, amplification and electronics. His music has been released on labels such as Black Truffle, Editions Mego, Ipecac, Erstwhile, Clean Feed, Gaffer Records, 23five, iDEAL and his own label Antboy Music.

MATTHEW AZEVEDO (aka RETRIBUTION BODY) is a musician, audio engineer, teacher, and acoustician currently based in Boston whose performance practice is centered on creating unique, immersive sound environments. His primary solo project Retribution Body uses analog electronics, high amplification, and a custom speaker array capable of reproducing subsonic energy to explore the mental and emotional states which arise in Zen meditation. His latest album is out this summer on the Glistening Examples label.

Non-Event’s programming is supported in part by a grant from the Boston Cultural Council, a local agency which is funded by the Massachusetts Cultural Council and administered by the Mayor’s Office of Arts and Culture.
