Alex Cunningham is a St. Louis based musician and artist.
“With every performance we’ve seen featuring Alex there is the same level of passion of and integrity as an artist. Despite his sound being completely modern and unexpected, there is a certain part of his playing that evokes a mystical old world feeling. During his solo sets he pours over his violin, creating beautiful droning improvisational noise. Every inch of his body is thrown into the performance, making it very emotional and spiritual to watch.” – sound of stl
Alex has a new album called “Fiddle”. “Fiddle” consists of 11 improvisations for acoustic violin. All of the material is free improvised, aside from the opening track, which was improvised under the self-imposed constraint, “improvise a fiddle tune.”
Dane Rousay is a Canadian-American improvisor, drummer, and curator based in San Antonio, Texas. Drawn to improvisation by a desire to free their percussion practice from the constraints of conventional timekeeping, Rousay explores the emotional overlap of rhythm, speed, and texture as both a soloist and participant in creative partnerships that span the United States.
Drawing liberatory power and ethical commitment from queer theory, Rousay’s improvisational style employs a critique of the relationship between masculinity and percussion.
