Kenny Wollesen and Will Shore
Kenny Wollesen (Bill Frisell, John Zorn, Tom Waits) and Will Shore (Tomboy, Shore) come together on two vibraphones to improvise and create wide-open original music. All 8 of their mallets swing real loose between freedom and precision: raucous polyrhythmic grooves and sharp dissonant lines lead into floating melodic rolls.
The duo’s unique sound comes from the mix of Kenny’s acoustic vibraphone with Will’s electric one, which is fitted with contact mics to create a timbre much like his solo production work (Shore).
Between Will’s manipulation of the vibes through pedals/electronics and Kenny’s vibrant and propulsive playing that you’ve heard on so many albums, the duo is sure to create an unpredictable noise and lively rhythmic interplay (though nothing else is certain).
Kenny Wollesen is a drummer, vibraphonist, percussionist and instrument builder based in New York City. He is the founder of the Wollesonic Laboratories and the mastermind behind Sonic Massages and the Himalayas marching band. He has worked with Bill Frisell, Norah Jones, Tom Waits, Ben Goldberg, Steven Bernstein, Jonas Mekas, Butch Morris, Ilhan Ersahin, Hal Wilner, John Medeski, JIm Hall and has been a vital member of John Zorn’s ensembles and projects for over 20 years.
