Australian percussionist Will Guthrie, now based in France, is currently on tour through the US!  Luckily for us, he is stopping by Madison for a set this Wednesday @ Bright Red Studios!!  His creations for percussion & electronics often lead with texture and are patiently thorough.  Accompanying side effects of Will Guthrie’s playing may include deep trance-states.  Please ask your doctor if Will Guthrie is right for you.


Brennan Connors & Miguel McQuade have been cooking up some secret jams and are now to unleash them upon us!  As a bandmate of Brennan’s, I’m obviously a fan of his playing; but it’s always a special thing to hear an alter ego of a bandmate as they interact with different musicians.  I greatly admire Miguel’s drum style and sensitivity.  The last time I played with him, I had a neck ache for about 3 days!  That’s how hard I was bopping to his grooves!  Check out Miguel’s electronic music to get an idea of what I mean >>


I’ll be performing a new solo cello set as BC Grimm.  This polyglotist acoustic collage will include varying styles: JS Bach, erhu Chinese fiddle tunes, a tickling of flamenco, original extended-technique pizzicato pieces, excerpts from original theater scores & experimental improvs.
