Ikue Mori - A Retrospective (1977-2016)

Ikue Mori is a vital figure on the 'Downtown New York Scene' and the international avant-garde community. She is a pioneer of the use of electronics in music.
Mori's career began as the drummer for DNA, one of the leading groups of New York's "No Wave" movement. Following her time with DNA, she began performing as part of the New York experimental community with notable figures such as John Zorn, Zeena Parkins, and Jim Staley. In the mid80's, she transitioned her primary instrument to the drum machine and immediately developed a highly distinctive sound and style, culminating in her first solo recordings in the mid90s. In 2000, Mori made the switch to laptop which opened a virtuosic depth and range to her electronics. Key groups at this juncture include Mephista and Phantom Orchard. She continues to release solo albums as well as perform and record with the top musicians and composers of the experimental community, constantly breaking ground at the forefront of the sonic arts
