Jozef Van Wissem, Che Chen/Robbie Lee, Leslie Flan
9:00PM - - -
Price:  $7


Jozef Van Wissem is a lute player/composer from Holland. Devoted to what
he terms, "The Liberation of the Lute", his compositions for the instrument
have involved a dynamic mix of conceptual, minimalist and improvisational
strategies. Over the last two decades, he has used cut and paste tactics,
created palindromic compositions by playing pieces forwards and then
backwards and used field recordings and free improvisation to create a sound
world that is at once meditative and surprising, new and arcane. An
incessant touring musician, Van Wissem's hypnotic live shows have taken him
all over the world. He has records out on Important Records, BVHaast and his
own Incunabulum label and has collaborated with James Blackshaw (as
'Brethren of the Free Spirit'), Tetuzi Akiyama, Smegma, Gary Lucas (Captain
Beefheart's guitarist) and Maurizio Bianchi. Most recently he has begun
playing his compositions in a trio with Robbie Lee and Che Chen called, 'The
Heresy of the Free Spirit'.

*Che Chen & Robbie Lee* are Brooklyn, NY based multi-instrumentalists who
have been steadily and intensively developing their unique approach to free
improvisation over the last several years. Using a shifting constellation
of instruments that has included bass clarinets, baroque recorders, reed and
pipe organs, renaissance keyboard instruments, flutes, saxophones, bowed and
plucked strings, little drums, bells, tape machines and their voices, Che
Chen and Robbie Lee create earthy, slow moving improvisations that are
informed as much by the ethnic folk traditions of the world as they are by
20th century composition and improvisation. Their music places precedent in
listening, attention and dynamic interaction in the moment. Chen and Lee
have released an LP and several cd-r's on their own Telegraph Harp imprint.
