Curated by drummer/sound artist John Brennan and produced by VIVO Media Arts, this experimental music series Destroy Vancouver brings together some of the world’s most influential improvisers with local sound explorers. This edition, co-presented by VIVO and Coastal Jazz, features solo sets from three distinct creative voices. Known for his work with powerhouse avant-groove trio Medeski Martin and Wood, drummer Billy Martin has worked with Nels Cline and Bill Frisell. A master of high-wire, wide-open improv, his approach is both ecstatic and insightful. Using extended technique and powerful emotion, pianist Lisa Cay Miller is “making some of the most intricate and beautiful music that can be heard in Vancouver today” (Georgia Straight). JUNO Award winner JP Carter’s trumpet and electronics open a portal into an alternate world of sound. An endlessly imaginative improviser, he’s worked with Dan Mangan, Destroyer, and Fond of Tigers.
