Take a globe. Draw a non-Euclidean triangle joining the cities of L.A., Torino and Berlin. Then join us on May 4th for the multiform performance of Elder Sister – introduced and followed by yours truly Nana Bianca spinning vynil. Thanks Rita Records for making such geometry possible. Expect beautiful music and giant dog pictures.
Jane Paik’s current project, Elder Sister, is a stripped down musical landscape inhabited by guitars, off-kilter rhythms and magnetic tapes, constructed of composed and shattered/improvised songs that highlight her unique voice and interaction with text and sounds. Live shows are dynamic and hybrid, employing a stage presence that sets her apart from most traditional, or even non-traditional, performers and musicians.
Delivered to you from the oceanic land of California, Los Angeles native Jane Paik can now be found habitating in the City of Magic – Torino, Italy. She has toured and travelled all over the United States and a number of other countries throughout the 90s and early 2000s, performing on bills with diverse acts such as Kim Gordon, Deerhoof, Liars, Joanna Newsom and Lucky Dragons in all spots from contemporary art museums and rock clubs to hole-in-the-wall punk spaces.
