Latitudes 08: Sonnet Matsumoto Duo and Tongue Depressor

Event, EV.LAT.2019.05.02

Caspar Sonnet (lap-steel dobro), Kozue Matsumoto (koto) is an acoustic experimental, improvisational duo based in Los Angeles, California. Both artists employ numerous extended techniques exploring an array of sounds and textures heralding modern and early eastern and western folk traditions. Tongue Depressor is the duo of Zach Rowden and Henry Birdsey – two quietly prolific artists working in New Haven, CT. As a duo these experimenters delve into long bouts of trance inducing microtonal drone, typically on fiddles, but not exclusively, as on their release Broad Is The Road That Leads To Death sees Tongue Depressor experimenting with a wide range of instruments and musical know-how. This concert took place on May 2, 2019 at the Center for New Music in San Francisco.
