The following description was submitted by the event organizer.
Drummer Tomas Fujiwara and guitarist Mary Halvorson have been collaborating for eighteen years. They met in New York City in the early 2000s and first started playing together in cornetist Taylor Ho Bynum's sextet. Since then, they have become each other's most frequent collaborators, working together on various projects led by Michael Formanek, Adam O'Farrill, Matana Roberts, Tomeka Reid, Ben Goldberg and Mike Reed. Fujiwara is also a part of Halvorson's Code Girl and Amaryllis, and Halvorson is a member of Fujiwara's bands Triple Double and The Hook Up. This rare duo performance showcases a project built on years of history and collaboration in a stripped-down setting.
