Eris 136199

This has been my favorite tour! Excellent company, exemplary hosts, faultless, above-and-beyond support from all. Everyone here worked so hard for no material gain to make the musicians’ journey as effortless as possible. My hosts have reminded me why we all do this; that creative music brings gradations and spectra to the sometimes hard-edged world, that it refuses and resists and rewrites the 1-bit world into something altogether more colorful and toneful and rhythmic and noisy. I am forever grateful; it was a true pleasure to work with y’all.

November 2017: Forged in the avant-what of Downtown New York City, Eris 136199 is coming to Europe this fall, performing in Hamburg, Copenhagen, Cheltenham, Derby and Newcastle. A meeting between intrepid guitarists and cyborg interactionist Han-earl Park, legendary avant-metal composer-guitarist Nick Didkovsky, and the muscular, impeccably melodic saxophonist Catherine Sikora, Eris 136199 has been described as “a beautiful noise”, and “ein glorioser Bastard aus Noise und süßer Träumerei.”

Eris 136199: tour and recording (Kickstarter)

Eris 136199: Kickstarter 2017

The two week Kickstarter campaign starts today! Eris 136199 is reuniting for a European tour complete with a second album. All we need is YOU. Interaction with, and within, Eris is an always awesome experience; unique in bringing so many strands of the musically possible together. I’m very excited to be playing again with two of my favorite musicians, avant-rock legend Nick Didkovsky and the powerfully creative improviser Catherine Sikora, and finally bringing this trio to European audiences.
