Cabin/Eyvind Kang and Jesska Kenney

Cabin is a trio of adventurers named Chris Williams, Trumpet and FX, Nick Hon, Percussion and Contact Mics and Ben Finley, Bass and FX. This co-composed co-lead ensemble calls glacial solitude, bombastic contemplation and canopied forest pathways. Meeting at CalArts, they bonded over building sound worlds derived from minimal and specific materials. While still in their first trimester as a group, they are interested in extramusical collaborations and place conscious performances; swift and unmasked. 

Jessika Kenney is unwinding and nourishing a harbor of voices. As a filter for sphygmoresonances, be they in forms of language or indecipherable metonymics, this functioning as process frequently manifests as: the intersection of melodic science (radifs, cengkok, unstable svaras, pulses) with the aural and textual transmissions of translated concepts... the sphygmological space between breathing bodies, canyons, and the asymmetrical harmonics of tuned metal... the exposure of first intention ontic wounds and corresponding temporal suturing.. as well as collective atemporal eversion between eras, iconicities, and untethered evolutions of cyclic inscriptions.
