Muyassar Kurdi and Nicholas Jozwiak for Live Constructions
Sunday, October 15, 2017 - 10:00pm to 11:00pm
Tune in this Sunday from 10-11pm for a live studio performance with Muyassar Kurdi (vox) and collaborator Nicholas Jozwiak (cello). Kurdi is a multi-disciplinary artist whose work encompasses sound, extended vocal technique, performance art, movement, photography, and film. An improviser and composer, Kurdi has toured extensively in the US and in Europe and performs music for voice, harmonium, piano, lyre, autoharp, and theremin.
Kurdi's evocative work draws on her studies with the legendary vocalist and dancer Meredith Monk, her time learning Butoh dance from Tadashi Endo, and her work under Diego Piñon and Janis Brenner, and other teachers in Chicago and New York. She has performed at the Rubin Museum, Issue Project Room, Cafe OTO, Chicago Cultural Center, and completed an artist residency in at Liebig12 in Berlin this past winter. Kurdi is also the recipient of the Garrison Institute scholarship to study further with Meredith Monk in the Winter of 2017.
On Live Constructions, Kurdi and Jozwiak will perform and discuss highlights from their latest collaborative project, which will be released November 13 on NORENT Records.
