Chris Heenan and Jonas Kocher

Returning to AUX for the first time since last fall, Philly-based experimental music impresario Bowerbird offers a rare chance to see the duo of Berlin-based American contrabass clarinetist Chris Heenan and Swiss accordianist Jonas Kocher (who are in the midst of a US tour). Recent Philadelphia transplant Bhob Rainey will also perform, making his debut appearance as a Philly resident with a set of solo electronics. $10 general admission.

Chris Heenan and Jonas Kocher work with the unlikely pairing of contrabass clarinet and accordion using improvisation to create worlds of changing depth and mood that both expand upon and fixate on particular sonic zones while simultaneously belying the instrumentation of the duo. Sudden shifts in texture and tempo give way to areas of quiet and stasis, a reprieve from constant movement that gives way to a burst of loud focused activity.

Bhob Rainey’s eight member BSC will be appearing in Philadelphia later this fall, performing two original realizations of John Cage’s “Song Books” (1970).

This event is curated by Kensington based guitarist Chris Forsyth and made possible with the support of Pro Helvetia, the Swiss Arts Council.
