CHRISTOPHER RIGGS (Detroit)
Christopher Riggs is from Detroit, and thanks to the Calgary 2012 grant, will be coming to Alberta to play a series of shows and teach a masterclass at Calgary’s Theatre Junction Grand. He plays guitar, focusing on altered preparations, and his own style of notation. He will be playing a set with Bent Spoon Duo.

BENT SPOON DUO (Calgary)
Comprised of Chris Dadge and Scott Munro, Bent Spoon Duo is possibly Alberta’s most highly esteemed free-improv group. In a recent review in The Wire, Byron Coley describes them as “spendid, low-bore Improv racket in the classic pots-and-pans style.”

Adding an insane drummer to the already insane lineup has, (in this guys highly biased opinion,) put new wind in the sails of Zebra Pulse. Absolutely face-melting live and a must-see.

PIGEON BREEDERS (Edmonton)
The Charles Barkley of free-improv, with three Charles Barkleys.

Calgary’s Jevon Voon makes twisted songs: crooning over African music, British Folk, Minimalist, Fluxus composers, and whatever else is lying around.
