Nava Dunkelman & Kevin Corcoran

Percussion duo and first-time collaboration.

Nava Dunkelman is a percussionist and improviser. Born in Tokyo, Japan and raised in a multi-cultural environment by an American father and Indonesian mother. Her musical interests span the globe from Japanese taiko to Indonesian gamelan to American marching band, and from classical to contemporary to the avant-garde.
Kevin Corcoran is a percussionist most interested in techniques which extend the sonic possibilities of the instrument emphasizing textural sound, friction, sympathetic vibration, sustained tones and the use of found objects. Whether working in sparse sound with a single drum and percussive objects or frenetic contexts with full drum kit, improvisation is crucial to his practice as generative method and non-hierarchical exchange of ideas.
