Helen Gillet +1 Simon Berz

hg

Helen Gillet is an experimental cello dreamweaver from Belgium and rooted in New Orleans here to serenade you into the night. Her ethereal vocals dance boldly among classical, jazz and contemporary familiarities to make for unheard territory. 

Helen presents her monthly music residency in Three Keys, "Helen Gillet +1," on the first Wednesday of each month. During the second of her two sets, she invites a different special guest musician to play with her for an experimental collaborative session. 

This month features Simon Berz. When the Swiss drummer and sound artist rode his bike across a field of stone in the French Alps, he was immediately taken by the sounds the stones produced. He took some of them home to create a lithophon, which he then amplified and manipulated with electronic effects. As he scratches and strokes them or uses different sticks and materials to hit them percussively, he creates a dense and unique performance.
