With an expressive palette born from having studied a variety of extended drum techniques, Chris Corsano’s sound has become unique in both its rapidfire aggressiveness and its keen sense of space and tone, displaying a range of qualities not always found in the free music tropes.
Corsano has collaborated with a variety of artists: Björk, Sonic Youth, Jandek and Nels Cline, all the while maintaining ongoing partnerships with the likes of Akira Sakata, Paul Flaherty, Vampire Belt, Joe McPhee and many others.
This concert will find Corsano performing solo pieces as well as collaborating with two fixtures on St. Louis’s experimental music scene, bassist Darin Gray, with whom he has toured Japan (in Akira Sakata’s Trio), and saxophonist, Dave Stone.
