Cellists Michelle Kinney and Jacqueline Ferrier-Ultan have been exploring their collaboration together since 2002 when they discovered a personal and musical kinship that took on a life of its own as Jelloslave. Jacqueline-Ferrier-Ultan and Michelle Kinney use all 8 amplified strings to sing, squawk, scream, growl and purr their way through their eclectic repertoire. They each bring to the duo a varied experience with several of new music’s most innovative composers and performers. Including (on the short list….) Henry Threadgill, Myra Melford, Lloyd Ultan, Brandon Ross, George Cartwright, Anthony Cox and Buth Morris. Jelloslave recently released a CD on the brand new internet label, Sugarfootmusic.com.
Special guests tonight include: VJ Neverwas on projections and guitar, and Michael Ferrier, sax.
