Wilson Shook + Widow:
A field folded: Widow (A. Vitacolonna, microphone, bells, movement) and Wilson Shook (woodwinds). Sound, movement, space. Listening and choice. Dissonance and pleasure. Grasping the contours of possibility in a hostile environment. A field folded.

Saxophonist Wilson Shook makes music like a moth fluttering at a street light. Graceful, frantic, persistent and sometimes tragic, it is music absorbed of its own inscrutable purpose. It finds serenity in immediacy, escape in acts of radical presence. It is here, and then it is not. A self-taught improvising saxophonist, Wilson often performs as a soloist, with sustained collaborations including Greg Kelley (nmperign), Dave Abramson (Diminished Men, Master Musicians of Bukkake), Andrew Scott Young (Tiger Hatchery), Ben Bennett, Ryan Jewell, Jacob Wick, Carol Genetti, Gust Burns, Patrick Neill Gundran (Uneasy Chairs). Sporadic collaborations have included many other creative voices in contemporary weirdness. For 10 years Wilson helped to organize the performance space Gallery 1412 in Seattle. He relocated to Los Angeles in late 2017.

Widow [A.Vitacolonna] is a Los Angeles based performer & conceptual artist, pulling from the guts of their lifelong exploits in movement, sound, language, love, pain, deconstruction, and ritual healing. They are most passionate about exploring and confronting interdimensional consciousness in both their hypnotherapy practice and somatic experiments.

FiLTHMiLK amalgamates classical Hindustani and western classical elements together with urban hip hop, industrial, punk and metal for a distinctive sound. Hypnotic cello arrangements compliment and counterbalance the sitar raga, MPC talas, and analog synthesizers to create an unworldly cinematic aural experience. It's raw, energetic, and strangely danceable. This is the music that will bring robots and humans together for a brief moment of joy before the total annihilation of everything.
