I am delighted to have been invited to perform as part of Father Daughter #14 along with Cruel Diagonals and Project Metamorphosis.
Wednesday April 12 at 7:30
Father Daughter Presents is an ongoing series dedicated to ambient music and visuals, held on the second Monday of every other month at The Royal Room.
"As we watch the decline of Western Civilization into a new Dark Ages we have not lost hope! For this Father Daughter…Number 14 we are proud and tickled pink to present you with an evening of field recordings, ethereal wailing, angelic walls of a sound, and feelings of being in the Appalachians on a dark and quite mysterious night. All this and more will be paired with existential visuals of life on this planet we call Earth."
Friday March 17th at ROULETTE in Brooklyn I will be joined by some of my favorite musicians: Guy Klucevsek, Sara Schoenbeck and Peggy Lee for a performance of songs, instrumental works and a concert version of my score for Yasujiro Ozu's masterpiece "That Night's Wife."
Robin Holcomb – Piano, Voice
Peggy Lee – Cello
Sara Schoenbeck – Bassoon
Guy Klucevsek – Accordion
