Tuesday, May 23, 2017, 8:00 pm, $7-$10

Janel Leppin is a cellist and composer who weaves diverse musical styles within her work.  Through the tasteful application of electronics and extended technique, she effectively removes her instrument from its conventions of style.  Her range is broad; including Japanese, Indian and Persian classical music, jazz, free improvisation, pop influences, the avant-garde and contemporary classical musical elements such as musique concrete and minimalism. Her love of Abdul Wadud and David Darling and SUNN (((O lend aggressive yet relaxing influences within her work. She has toured internationally for many years with various artists such as gothic Americana star Marissa Nadler, Kyp Malone of T.V. on the Radio and in her duo as Janel and Anthony as well as with her own work for her moniker, Mellow Diamond. She has added to recordings for many labels including Sub Pop, Touch, Editions Mego, Ideologic Organ, Cuneiform Records and Tzadik.

 Mary Lattimore is a harpist living in Philadelphia. She experiments with her Lyon and Healy Concert Grand harp and effects. Her solo debut, “The Withdrawing Room”, was released in 2013 on Desire Path Recordings.
Her most recent album, At The Dam, was released in March 2016 on Ghostly International.
