Jazz legend Idris Ackamoor and David Molina perform improvised, ritualistic, cleansing ceremonies in the form of music. They play a multitude of traditional acoustic and invented instruments, which are processed with electronics. Using modern technology, Molina creates sparse to dense layers, which can range from hauntingly beautiful and meditative, to dark and unnerving soundscapes. Ackamoor uses his array of instruments anchored by his signature alto and tenor saxophones emphasizing extended range, explosive multi-phonics, lyrical beauty, and intense “outside” playing.
