No Room For Squares Session 21 – Mary Halvorson’s Code Girl – Artlessly Falling (2020)

May 8, 2023 @ 6:30 PM11:00 PM

“A record where Halvorson paints intricate, sweeping soundscapes with challenging harmonies, deftly accompanied by Michael Formanek’s resonant bass and drummer Tomas Fujiwara’s textural rhythms. Yet, it’s in the use of poetry where depth and difficulty lie. Here listeners are confronted with a mercurial mix of words, forms and music — combinations that gel as often as they resist each other. Though she’s already perhaps the world’s most original and innovative guitarist on the scene today, Mary Halvorson isn’t satisfied at ‘merely’ being just that. She’s put as much vigor into being a serious poet as she has as a composer and musician.” (Ammar Kalia, Downbeat Magazine)

Listen with us this modern masterpieces that defies easy categorization in terms of genres: the song blends elements of avant-garde jazz, folk, and rock into a cohesive whole, creating a sound that is both complex and accessible. Robert Wyatt also make one of his rare appearances and sings three of the compositions, making the record even more special!

✨ Free entrance, no reservations.
