Ikue Mori

Ikue Mori moved from her native city of Tokyo to New York in 1977. She started playing drums and soon formed the seminal NO WAVE band DNA, with fellow noise pioneers Arto Lindsay and Tim Wright. DNA enjoyed legendary cult status, while creating a new brand of radical rhythms and dissonant sounds; forever altering the face of rock music. In the mid '80s Ikue started in employ drum machines in the unlikely context of improvised music. While limited to the standard technology provided by the drum machine, she has never the less forged her own highly sensitive signature style. Through out in '90s She has subsequently collaborated with numerous improvisors throughout the US, Europe, and Asia, while continuing to produce and record her own music. 1998, She was invited to perform with Ensemble Modern as the soloist along with Zeena Parkins, and composer Fred Frith, also "One hundred Aspects of the Moon" commissioned by Roulette/Mary Flagler Cary Charitable Trust. Ikue won the Distinctive Award for Prix Ars Electronics Digital Music category in 1999. In 2000 Ikue started using the laptop computer to expand on her already signature sound, thus broadening her scope of musical expression

Fred Frith, Ikue Mori: A Mountain Doesn't Know It's Tall

Read "A Mountain Doesn't Know It's Tall" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro


Elettronica a gogo in questo album inciso oltre sei anni fa, nel gennaio 2015, a Esslingen, sud-ovest tedesco, tra due degli improvvisatori più radicali (ma per altri versi anche sufficientemente versatili, visti i molteplici terreni toccati nelle loro ormai lunghe carriere) in circolazione, Fred Frith, classe 1949, da Heathfield, East Sussex, e Ikue Mori, classe 1953, ...

Shelley Hirsch: Back with a Vengeance

Read "Shelley Hirsch: Back with a Vengeance" reviewed by John Pietaro


It took Brooklyn's Roulette performance space to break COVID-19's hold on Shelley Hirsch. Now, it seems there'll be no stopping her. The vocal acrobat, poet and performance artist was a new music original long before “downtown" moved across the East River. An original member of the avant rock band The Public Servants, Hirsch also ...

Read "Linda Sikhakhane, Raoul Bjorkenheim & Satoko Fujii" reviewed by Maurice Hogue


Things get a little rockin' this time out with the powerful guitar of Raoul Bjorkenheim and a top Italian quartet digging into the music of John Coltrane. Then he's front and center in the J&F Band, a mostly Italian ensemble, led by legendary Allman Brothers Band drummer Jaimoe and bassist Joe Fonda (and Joe sings! Who ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
