The work of poet Raymond “Moose” Jackson is born of an older world, of people in touch with the earth, connected by spirit, moved by planets and moon. People with their hands in the dirt, people who fight to protect their relationship to land and water. His work with New Orleans musicians has expanded to the international arena and his voice lends a surprisingly spiritual alacrity to improvised music.
Swiss drummer Simon Berz plays an amplified Lithophon built of 200 million year-old stones from the French Alps. With his fingers and electrified drumsticks he creates textures, rhythms and atmospheric harmonics from the improbable relationship between stones and electronics.
