Non-Event is pleased to present the Berlin-based trio Sawt Out along with the duo of suzueri (Elico Suzuki) & Bonnie Jones.

About the artist

Since its foundation in 2015, the Berlin-based trio Sawt Out has shaped and refined its profile as a prominent improvisational unit. With their unusual acoustic instrumentation of trumpet and two sets of percussion these three gentlemen create bewildering sound worlds rich in detail and of tight musical interaction. Sawt Out has played numerous concerts throughout Europe, Asia and beyond. This concert will be their US debut.

Elico Suzuki (suzueri) is a Tokyo based sound and visual artist. Born in Yokohama, she studied Fine Art at Musashino Art University, BFA. After 10 years of working in gaming, she studied media/sound art at the Institute of Advanced Media Arts and Sciences (IAMAS). She has released several albums including “Fata Morgana” (solo/2020) and “Live at Ftarri” (2016) with Roger Turner, Tetuzi Akiyama, and Makoto Oshiro. In 2023 she will release an album with Toshimaru Nakamura on SUPERPANG. She is also involved in several collaborative projects, including the band ‘a.hop’, with members from nine countries, including Ryoko Akama, Anne-F Jacques, and Bonne Jones, and as a contributor to Mopomoso TV, organized by the late John Russell.

Bonnie Jones is a Korean-American improvising musician, poet, and performer working with electronic sound and text. She performs solo and in numerous collaborative music, film, and visual art projects. Bonnie was a founding member of the Transmodern Festival and CHELA Gallery and is currently a member of the High Zero Festival collective. In 2010, along with Suzanne Thorpe she co-founded TECHNE, an organization that develops anti-racist, feminist workshops that center on technology-focused art making, improvisation, and community collaboration. Born in South Korea, she was raised on a dairy farm in New Jersey, and currently resides in Baltimore and Providence on the lands of the Susquehannock, Piscataway, Algonquian, and Narrangansett.
