Squidco's Visiting Artists Series

Join us Thursday, May 29th when The Moon (Adam Caine on guitar and Federico Ughi on drums) returns to Squidco's stage for a night of sound-based free improvisation. Their last performance here in July, 2013 was a superb demonstration of technical prowess and intense sound work - both were very pleased with their show here and are excited to return. The Moon will be playing here near the end of their US & Canadian tour, and no doubt they will be in tremendous form. Don't miss this show!

The Moon

Opening the night will be Subterene and CHANGES TO blind. As always, beverages and snacks will be available, the door price is $10, $5 with a valid student ID. 100% of the door goes to The Moon.

"The music of the Moon can surge like molten lava or flow like a quiet stream. It's a purist form of improvisation -- noise-attuned but rooted in jazz fundamentals, abstract but built on the unusually sturdy bond between guitarist Adam Caine and drummer Federico Ughi. These two play free, while operating like an old-school working band." -Hank Shteamer (of Time Out New York)

The Moon is what happens when two first rate free-jazz musicians indulge their obsessions with late-60's psychedelic sounds, noise-based improvisation, and 20th-century classical abstraction. Adam Caine (guitar) and Federico Ughi (drums) are both veterans of the New York City jazz scene, both having led bands and released numerous albums on their own. The cohesive, highly dynamic sound of The Moon has developed through extensive touring: they exhibit a willingness to 'get in the van' unusual for Brooklyn-based jazz groups. In 2013 they toured with New York free-jazz legend Daniel Carter as special guest.

In May 2014 The Moon sets out on their fifth US and Canada tour, in support of a new CD, Good and Evil (577 Records). 

"This is one of the best, most fully formed duo disks I've heard in recent memory."-Bruce Lee Gallanter-(Downtown Music Gallery)

"When is a duo not simply a duo? When it's The Moon, whose Good and Evil pushes the boundaries of form and timbre far enough to sound like several different ensembles. The juxtapositions are melodious, humorous and jarring by turn, but they're also always intriguing."-Mark Medwin (New York City Jazz Record, March 2014)
