Cage and Wild Flesh Productions are pleased to host a solo performance by instrument inventor and microtonal composer Skip LaPlante. Since the early 1970’s, LaPlante has been working between New York City and Java. His musical work combines Fluxus game theory and Javanese gamelan, creating hazy, uncanny sensory fields that unfold onto endless plains.
Tonight, LaPlante will present two pieces written for their respective hand built instruments, the Kanon (1976) and the Just Intonation Tuning Board (2006). Equal parts Pythagoras and Partch, you can expect elegiacally beautiful and time-killingly complex live stream minimalism in the expanded field.
Doors at 7. Performance at 8.

Wild Flesh Productions and Cage were pleased to present a solo performance and conversation with MICO.
Since the early 1990’s, Mico has practiced as a performance artist and musician, in solo and collaborative formations. An original sonic aktionist, she is represented by Kill Rock Stars, PSF Records, Ecstatic Peace, Sound@One, Revenant Records, and Chocolate Monk, among others. Notable groups include No Neck Blues Band, KI, and K Salvatore. Mico brews hallucinatory hymnal codas in the space between Suite for Toy Piano and Leg Lung circa Worm.
The occasion of her solo performance was special and rare, and I, along with everyone at Cage, thank Mico for her work.
