David Torn and Prezens at Joe's Pub NYC THURS 13th

PreOrder Tickets

David Torn, guitarist and composer, is well-known for electronics and performance techniques that have a highly atmospheric or textural quality, and his work has been lauded by musicians across the spectrum including David Bowie and Jack Bruce.

and oh yeah, its my Dad.


David Torn assembled a fierce band in the studio, including saxophonist Tim Berne, keyboardist Craig Taborn and drummer Tom Rainey. Actually reassembled might be a better term: Torn taped hours of improvisation, then fashioned that raw material into unearthly collages of frenetic energy, grimy funk and trippy electronica. The album has a lot more to do with texture and dislocation than with athletic chops, but these players have the goods to bring it live."
- Time Out New York

"the sound of the 21st century schizoid man taking his meds, mellowing out a little, then suddenly realizing he took the wrong pills before really freaking out."
-Pitchfork (Joshua Klein)-

Wow, back from the dead.

Was that Prezens tour really almost seven years ago? I saw the Boston show and it was incredible. I love ensembles that mix electronics with other instrumentation a lot more than 100% electronic...always have.

Watching Torn manipulating samples and loops live from a MIDIed guitar and a few expression pedals is a humbling experience for anyone who thinks they need more control than a Push, APC or Launchpad can provide.

Those who hate "laptop shows" should check him out if he comes to your town.
