- 8pm: Perfect Center (From LA): Lucas Gorham — guitar
- 9pm: Chris Corsano — drums
Perfect Center is Lucas Gorham. It is music that uses lap steel guitar, electric guitar, electronics and vocals. Lucas is based in Los Angeles, CA but has relocated from Houston, TX.
First spellbound by freely improvised music in the mid-1990s after witnessing performances by TEST, William Parker, Cecil Taylor, and others, Chris Corsano began a long-standing, high-energy partnership with Paul Flaherty in 1998. A move from western Massachusetts to the UK in 2005 led Corsano to focus on his solo music, incorporating sax reeds, violin strings and bows, contact microphones and electronics, and everyday household items into his drum kit. In February 2006 he released his first solo recording, The Young Cricketer, and toured extensively throughout Europe, USA, and Japan. He spent 2007 and ’08 as the drummer on Björk’s Volta world tour, all the while weaving in shows and recordings on his days off with the likes of Evan Parker, Virginia Genta, and C. Spencer Yeh. Moving back to the U.S. in 2009, Corsano returned focus to his own projects, including solo work, duos with Michael Flower, Joe McPhee, Nate Wooley, and Mette Rasmussen and the trio Rangda with Richard Bishop and Ben Chasny.
