An evening of solo performances featuring Jessica Moss, Ka Baird, and Moor Mother

Ars Nova Workshop is excited to present this evening of solo performances uniting three of the most daring and boundary-breaking artists in modern experimental music.

Jessica Moss is a Montréal-based violinist, composer and artist known for her long tenure in cult agit-prop post-punk band Thee Silver Mt. Zion and contributions to recordings by the likes of Vic Chesnutt, Big Brave, Sarah Davachi, Carla Bozulich, Basia Bulat and Broken Social Scene. Moss’ expanding body of unique solo works for amplified and processed violin, voice, and electronics transmit an emotive, expressive sensibility shaped by post-classical, avant-folk, noise, improv, electroacoustic, artpunk and ambient metal. 

Ka Baird is a NYC-based musician, performer, composer and sound designer who was one of the core members of Spires That In The Sunset Rise. They are known for live performances which include extended voice and microphone techniques combined with electronics and psychoacoustic interplay of flutes and other woodwinds. 

No stranger in her native Philadelphia, songwriter, composer, vocalist, poet, and educator Camae Ayewa a.k.a. Moor Mother has released an abundance of acclaimed music, both as a solo artist and in collaboration with other musicians who share her drive to dig up the untold. She has performed and recorded with the groups Irreversible Entanglements and the Art Ensemble of Chicago, and made records with billy woods, Mental Jewelry, and YATTA.
