About the Show
Created and composed by Yuka C. Honda
Performed by Yuka C. Honda, Alex Cline, Nels Cline, Devin Hoff, and Zeena Parkins
Video by Brian Close

National Sawdust artist-in-residence Yuka C. Honda presents a brand new multimedia work-in-progress based on the writings of Japanese author Ryu Murakami. Murakami, while not well known in the United States, is one of Japan’s most celebrated and iconic living literary figures. Inspired by his writings, in particular the novel Coin Locker Babies, Honda has conceived an evening-length work of music and video for an all-star ensemble of avant-garde improvisers: twin brothers Nels and Alex Cline on guitar and drums, respectively; downtown composer and performer Zeena Parkins on harp; and stalwart jazz sideman Devin Hoff on upright bass. Video artist Brian Close (of the audio-visual design team Georgia) provides a visual score for the evening.
