8pm: Marco Eneidi – saxophone (Vienna, Austria)
9pm Rick Walker – electronics/fuzz/distortion

Musician/Composer/Alto Saxophonist Marco Eneidi has been living in Vienna, Austria since Nov 2004 and is director of the Neu New York/Vienna Institute of Improvised Music, a weekly workshop/performance every Monday for the past three and a half years. His latest recording “Sounds from the Keller” is a collection of tones, rhythms, thoughts and ideas worked on and developed while doing research beneath the city over the past four years, as well as studies that have been evolving over the past 32 years while working beneath
the surface. Recent shows have included performances with Andrew Cyrille, Han Bennink, Cecil Taylor, Georg Graewe, Paul Lovens, Ken Vandermark and Roscoe Mitchel as well as leading his own groups “snaetch kraeutl-biep” and “Lipcodie Enquke”.

Rick Walker
is a Santa Cruz-based musician, who works primarily with found objects and electronic processing devices. He is one of the world’s foremost promoters of the “Live Looping” movement (which involves feeding the sounds of live instrumentation into sampling devices for immediate playback and sound layering). He’s an expert in percussion and a wide array of world-music instruments and techniques. His music often brings a pop sensibility to experimental music techniques, and is known for creating catchy tune out of otherwise ordinary sounds. However, for this week’s show he’s planning on changing things up quite a bit, focusing on distortion, feedback, fuzz and feedback-elimination devices.
