Suphala and John Hadfield's 'Electrocussion' at Le Poisson Rouge
Oct 01, 2011 07:00 PM - 11:00 PM
Suphala and John Hadfield's 'Electrocussion'
Live performance and vanguard production technologies are integral and inseparable components of Suphala and John Hadfield's new project, Electrocussion. A tabla player and a percussionist/drummer, respectively, both are also experienced producers interested in moving past simple distinctions between acoustic and electronic. These seasoned musicians bring their production chops to the stage along with their drums, creating a singular, original sound informed by the rich histories of their instruments, creative mastery of the studio, and a bold vision of the future. Electrocussion makes beats from hands on drums as well as laptops, utilizing multiple musical traditions. It’s not one or the other. It’s a new omni-genre that evokes the moods, colors and patterns of a contemporary life in which technology is a tool to enhance, not replace, the visceral human power of rhythm.
