Il Est Né
2& make and manipulate all of their own sounds and perform with subtle theatrical grace using small percussion instruments (cymbals, bells, castenets, and woodblocks); accordion and toy piano; common household items and favorite found objects; voice, text, laptop computer and even, sometimes, stemware. (They promise to loose the eighty-eight keyed, iron-framed beast from its bullpen in the near future.)
With careful consideration for lighting, video, costume and stage design, the duo creates original electronic music for the visually inclined. They are not mere spectacle seekers, however, as can be witnessed at their parsed down debut on Saturday June 10th. If you're in the Mission, tune in to 88.9 FM between 2 - 4pm to hear 2& live. Alternately, you can hang out on the sidewalk in front of ATA and ogle us in person.
