Sparks (Peter Evans and Tom Blancarte) has been playing together since 2005. From the beginning of the formation of the duo, they have been constantly working to push their own boundries of density and speed of interaction while freely improvising. Tonight they are joined by Sam Pluta, Nathan Davis, Adam Linson on electronics (Adam will be processing via the internet) and Kevin Shea on drums.
Sparks have performed extensively in New York City and the U.S., and have toured several times in Europe, performing at festivals such at Å½edno uho 9 in Zagreb and at the Ring Ring Festival in Belgrade . Since their formation the duo has performed both as a self-contained unit and as a part of larger groups, including performances with Nate Wooley, Peter Brotzmann, Han Bennink and Lisle Ellis. Their first (self-titled) CD was released in 2008 on Creative Sources.
