Francis Wong and Lenora Lee
- Francis Wong – tenor saxophone
- Lenora Lee – dance
Saxophonist-composer Francis Wong and dancer-choreographer Lenora Lee have been working together for over 20 years creating both fully improvised works as well as works that integrate composition, choreography, and improvisation. They have collaborated on small to large scale works involving ensembles of dancers and musicians, oftentimes working with projection mapping, and text. The themes that they are particularly known for are the immigration experience of Chinese Americans during the era of Chinese Exclusion, as well as contemporary social justice issues such as human trafficking, and the impacts of war in Asian American communities.
- Andrea Centazzo – percussion, electronics
Andrea Centazzo, blends his percussion playing on a set of over 200 instruments, with electronics, computer sequencing and digital sampling, bringing to the listener the emotion of a new sonic adventure in jazz, world and contemporary avant-garde music. His quirky playing along with his ostinato patterns and his mastery of percussion improvising create a music beyond any expectation. Improvisations are presented in a spectacular way where the sound is also supported by a great visual of the multitude of gongs, drums, keyboard, cymbals and much more.
Co-Presented by KFJC 89.7FM, the 18th Annual Outsound New Music Summit by Outsound Presents is a concentrated celebration of the music and its listeners, still independent and volunteer-run in a time of corporate takeover of the City’s music scene and a swiftly homogenizing City culture. This year we’ll present artists like Andrea Centazzo, Francis Wong, Lenora Lee, Vinny Golia, William Winant and many more!
