Jamie Green is an improvisatory music maker from Los Angeles. Incorporating amplified violin, alto saxophone, tar (drum) and electronics, his rigorously naivist sound unfurls by tapping into hints of a Hindustani classical modality and a tendency toward ephemeral geometrical structures, interlocking melodic and rhythmic forms which tend to appear and recede just as quickly, actions not unlike ripples of folding water. Similar techniques are applied in his use of rhythmic and repetitive vocables, linked to his work as a published poet, which induce a heightened sensation of word-shapes while remaining primarily abstract-musical.

Pauline Lay is a violinist, solo artist, improviser, music events organizer, based out of Los Angeles. She began performing/live composing solo pieces with her acoustic and electronic instruments in 2014. She has also collaborated in a multitude of contexts with numerous musicians around LA, and has toured extensively in the U.S.


Mikko Biffleis Post-rock electronic manipulations, or straight up guitar: He lovee seeking sonically interesting ways to present lyrical and chaotic playing, within the framework of free-improvision. Always interested in collaboration possibilities duos.

Cost: $8-15 sliding
