Squidco Presents Hooked on Sonics: Acoustic

Join us Wednesday, February 27 as Squidco presents "Hooked on Sonics: Acoustics", an evening of acoustic improvisation and movement.

Headlining the evening is the New York City duo of Daniel Levin (cello) & Amy Hamilton (movement & dance).

Supporting their performance is the return of North Carolina's Polyorchard, the Raleigh-area free improvisation project led by violinist David Menestres.

Supporting their perform is Wilmington's own Austin Glover performing vocal improvisation.

We are very excited about this show, which will be a unique evening of improvised music from some of the country's most noted performers. It's rare for Wilmington to see musicians and dancers of this calibre, so mark your calendars: you won't want to miss this show!


Daniel Levin / A. Eithne Hamilton duo

Cellist Daniel Levin is "one of the instrument's most brilliant contemporary practitioners" (The Wire).

He was born in Burlington, Vermont, and began playing the cello at the age of six. In 2001, he graduated with a degree in Jazz Studies from the New England Conservatory of Music and arrived on the New York City jazz scene shortly thereafter. Since then, Daniel has developed his own distinctive voice as a cellist, improviser, and composer. Ed Hazell noted upon release of Levin's first record as a leader, "Cellist Daniel Levin is a major new voice on his instrument and in improvised music." Elements of European classical music, American jazz, microtonal and new music, and European free improvisation all figure prominently in his unique sound.

He has performed and/or recorded with Billy Bang, Borah Bergman, Tim Berne, Anthony Braxton, Gerald Cleaver, Andrew Cyrille, Mark Dresser, Ingebrigt Håker Flaten, Tony Malaby, Mat Maneri, Joe McPhee, William Parker, Ivo Perelman, Warren Smith, Ken Vandermark, and many others. Daniel is the recipient of a Jerome Foundation award. He has released more than 20 albums as a leader or co-leader, which can be found on Clean Feed, HatOLOGY, Not Two, Trost, Riti, and various other record labels. Daniel is a REMIC Artist Endorser.


A. Eithne Hamilton is a performing artist based in Western North Carolina. Her original choreography and film work has been performed and shown in the US and South America at various venues and locally in Western NC at {Re}Happening, Asheville Fringe Arts Festival, Lake Eden Arts Festival, the Bebe Theatre and other venues. Pipsissewa Movement Project, founded by Hamilton in 2009, creates experimental movement and film works through various collaborations.

Artist statement:

I create site-specific, immersive environments that disrupt the experience of daily life and become a bridge to a world that I find more interesting, that I would rather be living in. My movement is dance- based and technique-oriented and/or also incorporates the variety of human movement that does not relay this context. I am interested in spaces that involve participation and collaboration on multiple levels from all who are present. I enjoy creating layered, multimedia work and will regard any potential tool, method, identity or experiment as a possible means of expression and communication.



David Mestres

Polyorchard band bassist David Menestres will perform a solo set, working through a new set of compositions called Folk Forms no. 1, 2, 3, etc. (obviously a stolen title from Charles Mingus). Usually for prepared bass, often using things I've pulled out of the recycling at work.


Austin Glover

Wilmington, NC. Vocal improvisation influenced by Appalachian, Armenian, and Georgian polyphonic traditions.
