University City, MO 63130
This concert is part of the American Arts Experience – St Louis

Prolific pioneers of experimental collaborations and veterans of the downtown NYC scene, Mephista consists of Sylvie Courvoisier (piano), “No Wave” pioneer and electronic musician Ikue Mori (laptop), and experimental percussionist Susie Ibarra (percussion).

Separately these three have worked with voices in new music such as Derek Bailey, William Parker, Zeena Parkins, John Zorn, and Sonic Youth. As Mephista they have released two albums for John Zorn’s Tzadik label. These releases spotlight each musician’s distinct approach to their instrument, as well as the densely textured static sounds they collaboratively compose as a trio.
