The Local Epiphany Showcase

Sukato performed at The Local Epiphany Showcase, a concert organized by Christina Mason, on March 15, 2005.

Here are three duets with Ed Bernstein playing djembe and cymbal. (Ed is the founder of Share New York and did the recording here.) Sukato is singing and playing plectrum violin.

Duet #1, very fast

Ominous B-flat drone

Sukato's new composition on a B-flat drone was performed at The Cave in LIC on September 7, 14, 21, and 28, October 12, 19, and 27, November 2 and 24, and December 3, 2004, January 4 and 11, and February 1 and 15, and numerous times thereafter, in various versions, each time different than the performance before.

On the September 14 performance, Sukato sang and played plectrum-violin, accompanied by a prerecorded background.  Low, sumptuous electronic drones were created by Kala Pierson, over which Sukato multitracked and mixed additional string parts.

Improvisation on a 9-tone scale

Here is a previously unreleased work for solo plectrum-violin, recorded in 2003.  It is a performance on a scale with the octave divided up rather evenly into nine tones. As with much of Sukato's music, it's somewhere between improvisation and fixed composition.

Performances of "NOT"

Below are two performances/versions of NOT, a solo dance work choreographed and danced by Chris Ferris.  One includes oboe (Eliza Slavet) while the other doesn't.  The music and dance are very much intertwined and interdependent.  While Chris, Eliza and I were working through the piece, we decided to think of the music as a trio (all three of us) rather than a duo (Eliza and me).  There were places of silence where Chris could "breathe" and let the sounds of her movement -- the aggressive, jarring physical movement (i.e., stomping) -- become the music.  (Don't worry, you'll hear it in the audio!)

The work, both dance and music, thus has a claustrophobic feel to it and a lot of angst.
