Vinny Golia and SeFa LoCo share the musical languages of jazz, free jazz, free improvisation, and noise music. Their melding of acoustic and electronic sounds is fluid, often confounding the listener. Their playing complements, contrasts, and constantly pushes forward in new, unknown directions, generating complex, unexpected sound worlds. Bassist Bill McCrossen will fill the bass chair for this performance.
