Jack Vees and Tim Wolf play Best Video Film & Cultural Center Thursday, Feb. 24. The show starts at 7 PM and the cover is $10.
This is an indoor show so attendance is 30 max. Proof of vaccination is required to enter and masks are required.
Jack Vees’ work as a composer and bassist has been recognized as groundbreaking since he first emerged on both the contemporary music scene and the LA punk/alt rock scene in the 1980s (with the LA Music Connection magazine calling him the “best fretless player in LA”, 1984). Jack’s approach to the bass has consistently prodded listeners to scrap their presumptions of just what that instrument can do.
Tim Wolf, a musician and photographer, describes his work as liquid terrains: fluid landscapes. He has studied Indian classical music, practiced disciplines of improvisation, and worked as an audio engineer and music/performance producer. Formerly a saxophonist and vocalist, he now performs on several digitally-processed traditional African and folk instruments, and is a member of the New London Drone Orchestra.
Jack and Tim met at CalArts in the late 1970s and shared a common circle of friends and collaborators. Well on in to four decades later, they crossed paths again, plugged in, and came up with sonic landscapes that are fresh to today’s listeners.
