Join us for a concert with Rick Parker and Li Daiguo.
Sounds of the trombone, cello, pipa, human voice and a variety of electronic remedies are conjured to form the psychoacoustic duo of Brooklyn’s Rick Parker and China’s Li Daiguo. “The sounds that the two create together are uncategorizable, a fluid blend of past and future, traditional and modern. They move from the ambient to the abstract, with folk-like acoustics colliding strangely with sci-fi electronics.” (Shaun Brady). With performances and recording sessions over the last 3 years in both NYC and Dali, a small city in southwest China, Parker and Li released their debut record, Free World Music, on Brooklyn’s eleven2eleven and Very Special Music record labels in July 2016.
