RED MICROPHONE plus ERIKA DAGNINO
THE RED MICROPHONE
-THE RED MICROPHONE is a NYC-based quartet of seasoned improvisational musicians who engage in ongoing progressive arts activism.
The influence of earlier revolutionary cultural workers is brought to light in the quartet’s performance through sound, statement and intent.
Plainly put, the Red Microphone’s art is as revolutionary as its politics: John Pietaro-vibes/percussion/voice,
Ras Moshe-saxophones/flutes/voice, Rocco John Iacovone-saxophones, Nicolas Letman-Burtinovic-bass).
-As part of her latest tour the US, Italian poet ERIKA DAGNINO engages once again with improvisational NYC musicians
to create a soundscape of bi-lingual verse and free music.
In her performances around the world she has established an important place for the spoken word
of two cultures and continents into new music and free improvisation.
Her debut performance at Shapeshifter Lab with be a musical collaboration with members of the Red Microphone.
