Kendra Amalie is a Milwaukee-based singer, songwriter, guitarist, and new media artist combining technology and tradition to estimate the sound of modern folk.
“Kendra Amalie’s Intuition is a star map to a new and developing sound space. An exploratory and (sometimes) shredding finger-style 12-string guitarist (both acoustic and electric), band leader, synthesist, new media creator, and experimental producer, the Wisconsin-based musician is also a songwriter occupying an ethereal zone between galaxy-brain cosmic transmissions and deep, personal expression.” -- Jesse Jarnow
Described by the New York City Jazz Records as "one of the most adventurous bassists on the scene” and by the Chicago Reader as “genius for sound exploration,” Franco-German bassist and composer Pascal Niggenkemper creates music blurring the lines between improvised, experimental, and pure sound.
The focus of his musical work is the extension of the sonic horizon of the double bass: the acoustic sound modification using preparations.
His new solo work 'Uncanny valley’ reflects on the shift that occurs in the work environment due to automation, exploring the interaction between human and machine by using an augmented double bass he calls cobonore (word construct between cobot and & sonore). The instrument becomes a revisited device zoned into eight areas where motors are used.
Jon Camp is a fingerstyle guitarist and composer from the DC region. On "Headwinds & Tailwinds," Jon builds off the structure of American Primitive Guitar and applies it to an electric full-band setting, encompassing psychedelia, country, drone, and more. For this show at Rhizome, Jon will be playing with long-time collaborator Nick Arrivo on bass, Jamie Linder (Crooks & Crows) on pedal steel and keys, Dave Jones (The Caribbean) on guitar and keys, and Matt Byars (The Caribbean) on drums.
