About the Session
Percussionist Alon Ilsar and guitarist Tim Motzer met in Sydney Austrailia in 2005. Alon's subsequent visit to the States in 2010 yielded: Ilsar-Motzer : Tales of the Blackwinged Bird, on 1k Recordings, an album of exceptional beauty, wonder, and experimentalism utilizing percussion, guitar, and electronics.
The 1k Session will be their first live performance in front of a studio audience in Lancaster, Pennsylvania at the SugarTank Studio. Musically, it will begin where the record left off, a music of searching and wonder, broken rhythms and sublime textures. Techniques used to create the Ilsar-Motzer album artwork will be re-created live by Dejha Ti; live capture of blowing and manipulating ink will be ingested for further processing through her laptop and projection mapped to irregular shaped surfaces. The performance will be captured in HD for broadcast and release on 1k Sessions as Episode 17.
