No Wave band DNA drummer and electronic sound creator, Ikue Mori, and electric harp pioneer, Zeena Parkins, will team up with guitarist Fred Frith for a night of improvisation this Saturday in the next installation of the sound. series put on by The Society for the Activation of Social Space through Art and Sound (SASSAS).

If you have never experienced improvisation, not jazz improv or drum circles, but the type of music where an experience of music/sound forms itself organically, players touching their instruments in reaction to what was previously heard, it is quite amazing. Sometimes it can also be disastrous, but with renown improvisers like the three who are coming together on Saturday, magic will be in the air.
