Special Twindrums Project with Yoshimio and Ikue Mori
Dec 9, 2015 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm| $20/15 Advanced $25/20 Doors
Legendary drummers Yoshimio and Ikue Mori have worked together in various projects throughout the decades since their first meeting in Osaka in the 1980s. The duo will come together for one night at Roulette this December to present Twindrums, a project first started in Brooklyn in 2013 and later performed in Japan in 2014.
As an original member of BOREDOMS, one of Japan’s most radical experimental music groups, Yoshimio is a drummer and multi instrumentalist who dabbles in guitar, keyboard, trumpet, and vocal performance. She is the leader of the experimental band OOIOO and a member of Free Kitten with Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon, and counts Hisham Bharoocha and The Flaming Lips among her collaborators. A multi-disciplinary artist, Yoshimio has contributed to innumerable session works and participated in many musical adventures outside of her usual projects. Outside of music, Yoshimio is the head designer / creative director for the fashion line Emeraldthirteen.
Renowned experimental musician and longtime friend of Roulette Ikue Mori returns to the stage for her second performance of the fall season. Mori began her career playing drums with the influential no wave band DNA. After becoming involved with the city’s flourishing improvisational scene via John Zorn, she began experimenting with drum machines, and in recent years utilizes the laptop as her primary instrument.
