Casa Del Popolo
Fountainsun (Daniel Higgs & Fumie Ishii)
The artistic output of Daniel Arcus Incus Ululat Higgs (best known as singer and lyricist for Lungfish) spans three decades, numerous albums, books of poetry and collections of drawings. Higgs, the “interdimensional song-seamstress and corpse-dancer of the Mystic Crags,”—in collaboration with photographer / musician / visual artist Fumie Ishii—present Fountainsun, a pensive and focused journey with elements of spoken word, eclectic percussion, banjo ragas, field recordings (or were there birds somewhere off screen on that video?) informed and influenced by the workings of the cosmos.
Hraïr Hratchian will be performing a series of solo pieces with the doudouk from the traditional Armenian repertoire and its liturgical chant, accompanied by ambient sounds.
