Mike Effenberger and Brian Shankar Adler: Airspace

Saturday - June, 11 @ 8:00pm

Mike Effenberger is a recording and performing artist who has been living in the outer Seacoast woods since 2007. He has curated an unmistakably individual voice that draws on gospel, American minimalism, jazz, and 20th century music. Known affiliations include: fiveighthirteen, Jazzputin and the Jug Skunks, the secular gospel choir Rock My Soul, OURBIGBAND, Soggy Po’ Boys and Weird Turn Pro, which plays his original music. Mike appears on countless recordings from independent releases to larger labels and is active as a producer. https://mikeeffenberger.bandcamp.com
Described as "a polyrhythmic force" (JazzTimes), multidisciplinary drummer, percussionist and composer Brian Shankar Adler transcends the terrain between genre and geographic region, asking: how can we find connection through rhythm? Adler has been recorded on over forty albums including his most recent works, For a Gallery on the Moon (Chant Records, 2020) and Fourth Dimension (Chant Records, 2019). His music video, "Mantra" won best music video at Transcinema International Film Festival in Peru and official selection at Quiet City Film Festival in New York City. Adler has worked with Guillermo Klein, La Bomba De Tiempo, Frank London, Kate McGarry, Kamala Sankaram, Elizabeth Swados, among others and has been featured in Modern Drummer Magazine, DownBeat, and NPR. www.brianadler.com
